15. The Astroscan is nice little telescope.
Very easy to use and durable. Only use the barlow lens on planets, the Moon, or for terrestrial viewing. You'll find it more enjoyable to look at most things with a lower power.

I have no idea what you know about this stuff, so just to be on the safe side: DO NOT EVER POINT IT AT THE SUN! Sorry to shout, but serious eye damage is, well, serious. If you have one of those little sun filters that screws into the eyepiece, throw it out. The only safe sun filter is one that goes over the front of the telescope. My apologies if my concern is presumptuous. :)
