Astronomers Without Borders OneSky telescope

The “Astronomers Without Borders AllSky” 120mm collapsing telescope does not really fit in the toy category, though it might be attractive as an older kid’s telescope. This is a superb beginner’s scope with unique features that are not just hype. It actually works very well!

You may also be interested in a much older “collapsing” scope (Eikow) that was highly experimental back in the mid 20th century. That one was a failure in my opinion. Some 70 years later with the AWB 120mm scope they got it right. Here’s the link to the older one: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=6NzubDnX_1Q

Really nice review! I would get one for myself, if not for the fact that I already have the Bushnell version of it. A serious sized aperture scope, especially for someone like me who uses smaller aperture scopes.

hi, i’m looking to buy a cheap telescope because i can’t afford expensive ones. I want to look at planets, mars, jupiter etc. Will I be able to see them or will it be very blur?
