Bushnell Voyager 700x76mm Reflector Telescope

Recently I had the opportunity to try out a nice, but inexpensive, reflector telescope. This was one of the easiest telescopes to set up and use that I have experienced. We were up and running about 10 minutes after opening the box.
Reflector telescopes are preferred by most astronomers. They simply magnify objects in the sky more than refraction telescopes. Plus, they tend to be smaller in size.
This was an easily telescope to assemble. You won't even need a screwdriver! The tripod comes fully assembled. You simply place the body of the telescope on the tripod and tighten wing nuts that are in separate bag. Then all you have to do is put the eyepiece in.
We immediately had a great view. After sunset, I focused in on the moon. I was able to snap a picture through the eyepiece with my phone. No fancy camera work here. It was as basic as it gets.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this telescope for the casual night sky observer.
