Iphone 4s Other Equipment Used: 08920 Notes: I am 39 yr old Single Father and I enjoy showing my 6 and 10 yr old the beauties of the night sky. The XT8 is a great beginner scope. Add an iphone adapter and you can get some great pics and video of the moon and Saturn. This telescope is so simple to use that my 10 yr old(with supervision ) can easily star hop.
The SkyQuest XT8 Classic reflector has features for both beginners and experienced users. It has a large aperture, the stable base glides easily to give you total pointing control, and this package includes a Barlow and Beginning Stargazer's Toolkit.
