Don't see a problem a microscope that goes to 600X and a telescope that goes to 40X. Sounds like good sound marketing.

Focus length rather focal.


Its mm not MM. "Both MM and M are used for million. The MM is used widely in the oil and gas business; it stands for "a thousand thousands".
from
https://www.quora.com/What-should-be...illion-M-or-MM



At its 20x/30X/40X rather than the hundreds.


I'm annoyed I missed reflector on the box!

Quora is not an authority on anything. Just because something is popular does not mean it’s correct - starting with old-wives tales and urban myths.

Google “SI units” to find the correct definition.

Dosen't have a warning sticker saying It'll fall to bits in 6 weeks after warranty, and you will be addicted for life looking for a good one..spending astronomical amounts on e.g. Tak Abbes etc.
Can't see a sun warning either..prob comes with a cheap $2 sun filter so the poor B----- purchaser will go Blind!
Reflector?focus length?

Wow, the scope has a built in compass!!!
How utterly revolutionary and awesome, the bonus tripod is getting to just showing off levels.

I had thought about remarking on the fact that the "reflector telescope" could have a mirror diagonal but I then considered that it'll most likely be a prism anyway

More likely a strip of alfoil held at a roughly 45 degree angle. Maybe.
