I like this site for it's more experienced and nuanced reviews of bad telescopes which get high reviews from people who don't know what they're talking about on sites like Amazon.

He has several very good reviews that stopped me from buying some of the other telescopes on Amazon and Best Buy that customers praised as being the best. I enjoyed his reviews. They are very up front about what he likes and doesn't like... I am glad he posted the good and the bad, and as I stated, it stopped me from buying some of the other ones that were supposedly "awesome telescopes."
