The torch is ok, but don't think the rest are really worth it. As John says the eyepieces aren't very good, the 2mm will be unusable in most 'scopes and even the 5mm may be rather high powered for some of the Newtonians. They might 'suggest' a retail price of £149, but that's laughably overpriced IMO...

I reckon save the cash, and pick up a couple of used eyepieces for the money.

televue plossl eyepieces for sale at £67each depending on size at Widescreen Centre. Can't go wrong with these. I couldn't believe the difference when i changed the ones that came with my scope. There are plenty of places you can pick up second hand bargains but the guys are right, if you have one quality ep then it's much better than 6 bad ones.
