Scope is not ED glass, mount doesn't have slow controls. but at this price, this is way way better than what you get for the same price for a department store telescope that is complete crap. Just assemble, configure the finderscope to match an object seen through the main scope and then you can start looking for objects in the sky. The easiest targets would be planets like Saturn, Jupiter and Venus. You won't see detail in Venus unfortunately. Same for Mars. The moon will be the easiest target to view with this scope.

A telescope and most things would get sun damage, rain damage, and build up condensation on the inside among many other things that happen to objects left to the elements, even with a tarp over them.

I see someone's telescope pointed right at my building 2 blocks from me. It's on their balcony 24/7.

Always thought about getting one and point it right back at them.
