General Comments
As first telescopes go, you could do no better than the Tasco 114mm Reflector telescope. This telescope is lightweight and easily assembled in very little time. The eyepieces supplied are good starters to get the beginner up and running and enjoying observing in no time. There are two eyepices (20mm and 4mm), a two times barlow lens ( this doubles the power of the eyepieces) and a moon filter. This telescope is an excellent beginners telescope, it has a fine 114mm primary mirror and a precise rack and pinion focussing method. I can thoroughly recommend this telescope as a gift for sopmeone who wants to begin this lifelong and fascinating hobby.

There is a comprehensive instruction booklet and a construction pamphlet included. There is also an excellent Moon map included in the instructions pack.

All tascos are poor and you should not buy a reflector smaller than 6 inch (150mm)
