Im new to all this and i am just starting out and been looking for a telescope and i come across this on ebay but i know nothing but them at all, and i don't want to spend a load of money on something that not worth it.

So if anyone can tell if this is worth the money any help would be really appreciated.

And thanks in-advance

Hi Geraint

Speaking personally, I wouldn't buy it, I have heard of Seben, but I know nothing about the company or their products. Here is a discussion about Seben.


Do you plan to begin astrophotography? If so, then I don't think that this is going to do it for you, the mount looks like it is lightweight, the digital camera adapter looks like it could hold nothing more than a compact camera, or camera phone.

If you are merely into visual observing, then, for the price, this scope is too expensive, for a little more you can pick up a very good 6" Dobsonian from the guys at Ktectelescopes or Scopesandspace.

I would advise you find a club near where you live and have a chat to the folks there and they will be only too willing to show their scopes and point you in the right direction.
