My personal experience with Zhumell 60mm AZ
I’ve just used this telescope to see the moon, and it works wonderfully for that. The image was bright and clear, and I could see a lot of surface detail. I tried out the phone adaptor; while it takes a little finesse to get the phone lens to align with the eyepiece, it works great once it is.
Complaints? Not too many because, as I mentioned, it is a rather full telescope for its price. The manual may use some clarification, and perhaps adding images to it would be beneficial. The tripod has some jiggling.
Other Zhumell Refractor Telescopes
- Zhumell 70mm Portable Refractor Telescope. Has a higher aperture of 70mm (2.8″), focal length of 400mm (15.74″), Eyepiece magnification (20x, 40x). The Zhumell 70mm AZ telescope also has a limited steller magnitude of 11.7, which is the highest compared to the other two Zhumell Refractor Telescopes.
- Zhumell 50mm Portable Refractor Telescope. Has the same focal length (360mm) as the Zhumell 60mm AZ. However, the Zhumell 50mm AZ has quite inferior highest and lowest useful magnification, 120x and 7x, respectively. It is also the smallest Zhumell refractor.
