National Geographic Consumer Torture

The telescope arrived without any printed instructions! Hours later our two boys and my wife and I had managed to put it together using only the photo on the box it came in--up until mating it with the tripod. At this point we realized there was no threaded connector to secure the telescope to the tripod! Now it sits in pieces on our living room floor--a testament to frustration. Yes, we searched the internet for a manual. It doesn't exist. A DVD that came with the telescope (that very well may be only a star chart) won't open on any of three computers in our house. NG Customer service were sympathetic and promised to ask the supplier in China for directions. We suggested the directions be posted online. But so far this product has made us work for hours only to reach a point when we had to quit in great frustration. Yes, it looks great but geez, you don't sell a product without printed intructions or at least an online manual. That's just torture.
