I've had my Astroscan for about 20 years now and have been very happy with it. As indicated, it has a wide field of view and isn't great for planets, but it's good with deep sky objects. I've seen a lot of galaxies and nebulae with it, but was only barely able to spot the Martian pole cap and some very vague surface variations in the recent perihelion. Jupiter's moons are easy to spot, but the surface features are just faint bands - don't think I've been able to see the Great Red Spot. Saturn's rings are barely visible in the default eyepiece, more visible in the 28mm I bought for it a couple of years ago which roughly triples the magnification.
Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.
