No I have not I've tried similar tho,you won't see much though that maybe the moon in some detail,but as a beginner scope then why not, but you would soon be upgrading to something a little more practical and better quality.
It's like anything,you pays ya money ya takes ya chance.

You are mistaken actually fido...not that it reallymatters
Look up twitchers and you'll see the difference. Twitchers will travel miles and spend a fortune on travel and equipment. Theyre the really hardcore birdwatchers who have bleepers to alert them to new sightings and will often jostle people out of the way to get a photo.

BuntyandBiggles. I wonder about twitchers are they really interested in the birds they see ? or is there primary motivation numbers when the tick off another rareity?
