Gsyker 70mm Telescope Reviews
The Gsyker 70mm is most definitely aimed at the beginner and the telescope should be viewed as a starter scope and not as an option for the more serious astronomer. However as a starter scope, it represents good value usually being available for under US$100.
On Amazon it has managed to gain a rating of 4.3 stars out of 5, however the website Telescopic Watch give it only one star out of five, preferring a Meade 70mm option. They said it was at a similar price point, however the Meade 70mm they mention is priced at US$188 on Amazon, with the 60mm option being similarly priced as the Gsyker at US$99.
