Telescopes come in all shapes and sizes, including tabletop models, handheld scopes, and models designed for viewing the night sky. In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we test telescopes for ease of use, including ease of set up, magnification, and ease of use. We also evaluate the best features, such as adjustable eyepieces, a 30x to 60x zoom range, and wide-field views.

Our top pick is the Meade Instruments 8" SCT Reflector Telescope, which is perfect for beginning astronomers. The 8" Meade Telescope features a wide field of view and 60x zoom magnification, allowing you to view the night's sky in stunning detail. This scope is also easy to use, with a rotatable tripod, 30-minute setup time, and wide-azimuth mount.

The Nautical Admiral's Bronzed Telescope is a handsome nautical-themed telescope. The dark wood base is accented with brass fittings, and it has a solid brass telescope tube. It's sturdy, and the dark wood gives it a handsome look. The nautical theme is a nice touch, and the glass is thick. The included leather binoculars are nicely made, and they provide good magnification and field of view. The tripod is sturdy, too, and it has a locking mechanism that allows you to adjust the height. The telescope is well built, and it's easy to use. The included instruction manual is a bit confusing, however. The instructions don't clearly define the different functions of the hand crank, and the screws for the focusing knobs aren't labeled. The manual also includes a diagram of the telescope's focusing mechanism, but it's confusing, too.

The Hampton Nautical Griffith Astro 65-inch Telescope is as close as you can get to owning the Hubble Space Telescope. It has the largest aperture of any telescope in its price range. Its large 65-inch optical tube houses a 15x magnification, which is equivalent to a 65x zoom on a digital camera. The telescope features a 5-element lens and 2-inch aperture. The metal tube is hand-finished with an antique copper finish, which blends into the nautical theme perfectly. The stand on which the telescope sits is sturdy enough to hold the camera steady, but it's expected that the stand will be moved frequently, so it didn't have as strong of a tripod as we liked. It also didn't include a remote. It's best used in clear weather, as the 65-inch tube makes it nearly impossible to focus the telescope in lower light conditions. The 25-inch tripod makes carrying it much easier, but it's heavy. The telescope also features a fold-down sunshade, which is useful for viewing during the day. The telescope is easy to assemble, and it comes with detailed, easy to follow instructions. The stand and tripod also fold down, making for easy storage. The telescope has a clear, crisp picture, and it's easy to use. The 65-inch tube means it's best suited for viewing objects in the sky, but if you're into astrophotography, the 4.6-inch aperture and long focal length make it a good bet for capturing the Milky Way.

The Hampton Nautical Griffith Astro Telescope features a solid, well-made stand and tripod, which is a nice upgrade from most telescopes in this price range. It's easy to set up, and the telescope's solid construction feels reassuring. The 15x magnification is enough to see objects on the moon and planets, and it offers good views of the Moon and Saturn. We noticed some chromatic aberration when viewing Mars, but it's an almost imperceptible issue. The telescope focuses at two different focal distances, allowing you to adjust how far away the object is. We found that the telescope's field of view is good, and we were able to view several objects at the same time. The telescope also has a built-in light, which is a nice feature for added clarity. The telescope's 65-inch base is slightly on the shorter side, but it's suitable for most spaces. The eyepiece is geared for portability, but it's comfortable enough to use for hours at a time. The eyepiece is made of plastic, so it may not hold up to long-term use, but it's durable enough for occasional use. The telescope's instructions are minimal, so we found which required a bit more research. Overall, the Hampton Nautical Griffith Astro Telescope is a good, affordable telescope, and its solid construction, quality optics, and affordable price make it a good option for beginner astronomers.

The 50-inch telescope is unusually wide for such a small telescope, so it's suited to year-around outdoor use.
