Barkska 40070 Starwatcher

by John Weatherby

After several months of deliberation I finally purchased the Barska Starwatcher on the back of some extremely positive reviews. I can tell you now, I wasn't disappointed.

There were a few things that prevented me from giving it a five star rating, namely the 45-degree diagonal and the tabletop tripod which I find are suited much better to terrestrial viewing.

If you are considering using the scope for stargazing you'll want to use a good tripod and add a 90-degree diagonal in as well.

The scope is sturdily constructed and has very good optics for the price.

I live in a largely rural area and the views I get of the Moon are great, and viewing distant objects such as the Orion nebula are an absolute pleasure.
