    Very good for the price, pretty basic so would suit school level use. Good service from Rubber Monkey though and a good price. Doesn't work on one of my desktop computers (Celestron support are working on it) but goes well on my Surface Pro6. Some color aberration is a bit annoying but would be fun for kids to learn about bugs, insects and plant parts etc.
