Really works!
I ordered this for my son and it's been a big hit. It's a beautiful, real telescope that really works and seems durable and well made. I had looked at several on Amazon, but most of them had bad reviews or didn't say whether they really worked or if they were just a costume decoration. This one really works as well as looks beautiful and timeless. I also like that the cap fits on nicely so the lens doesn't get scratched when he carries it around in his pocket. Really wonderful product. Thanks!

Quality & Service
The quality of the Telescope is excellent. Focusing is just a matter of sliding the larger cylinder in & out over the smaller one until you get a nice clear sharp image. My order was shipped next day and received within 3 days. I was very pleased with overall service.

This product looks great and is really durable. My only complaint is that it's only x2 magnification, but I knew that when I bought it.

This is a ok item
This product is pretty neat. I like the fact that it pulls out into a longer telescope but also it is hard trying to figure out how to focus it. to me figuring it out was half the fun.

Like the binoculars I ordered, this product is as described-- not powerful, but it works. The workmanship on it is excellent. Canadians pay HST on pick up (Canada Post won't deliver if money is owed).

A fun little accessory
Obviously, this isn't meant to be a true "field tool," but it does magnify a little, and looks good as an extra brassy bit for Steampunk or other adventurous outfits. It's very small, which is exactly what I needed. They carry a larger one if desired.

Happy Little Brassy Bit!
This is a clever little item, and it complimented my Steampunk attire quite nicely. I like that it comes with the brass lenscap, and it's a handy size for just about any pocket you want to put it in. While the magnification wasn't much, it is still a nice item. Very well-made piece!

Brass in pocket
A perfect bit of flash to add to my costume! It's small enough to fit nicely into a coat pocket where it can casually be pulled out for a little look around. Granted, 2x is not a lot of magnification but, for under $20, it's a great little piece. Seems well made, too.

Not powerful enough.
If this were to have 10x zoom I would enjoy this more.

Sharp looking accessory
Sharp looking piece. Collapses into the largest section, to be more compact. Don't expect it to be real "functional" (doesn't magnify much) but looked fabulous hanging from a brass chain (not included) from my Steampunk "utility belt"!

Cute Acessory
This item is a cute accessory to have hanging from your steampunk attire. Not very functional so more of a cosmetic piece.

Smallest telescope ever! This product is great fun - it does actually work as a telescope, looks cool, and is as described.

Mini Telescope
Bought this item to attach to my husband's Steampunk utility belt, but I misread the description. The telescope is too small to serve the purpose that it was purchased for, however, it is a pretty little item. I have used it as an interesting part of his hat decoration instead of the purpose we intended.

love it
The items we ordered were here very quickly and very affordable. They look like the real thing, and we will be shopping at the store again

Mini telescope
This is a fun pocket piece! It is solid brass and does magnify slightly. But it is not for any real use. This is a fun piece to pull out to accent a joke or amuse friends with. So it's exactly as advertised and is fine for what it is meant to be... just don't expect more than you are paying for.

Utterly, utterly beautiful little telescope.I've already added it to my chatelaine and had to fight off some other steampunks who want it.

Good workmanship in miniature
Low magnification - probably inevitable, given its size - but otherwise a perfectly functional, miniature telescope, very well made in solid brass with no cheap synthetic materials.

long on looks
The info is right about 2X magnification. I used this as a costume piece and it worked great. It is a handsome bit of brass, and does the job on what it can reach.

I'm brassy! Gotta love me!
This is a great addition to my pocket full of brassy bits. I haven't even tested the functionality but it's perfect for my Doctor Who outfit since he seems to be able to produce a rather large telescope at any given time. In costume, I'll pull out my big one and my accomplice with make off with it. Then I pull this from my pocket and hold it delicately like a sissy with my pinky up.
