The simple answer to your question is yes.

BUT

It all depends on your expectations and of course skies.

From a good dark site 62mm apeture will show clusters, nebula etc but dont expect to see the views you get in books. Even so called bright nebula wont be impressive and a lot of stuff will be beyond its capabilities. But if its a grab and go travel scope you want then Im sure it will work for you for awhile. I say awhile because if you get the bug you will want to upgrade.

Just remember With visual astronomy aperture is the key, it enables you to see more faint stuff but theres nowt wrong with starting with a 62mm scope. 50 plus years ago I started with a 50mm, astro gear was rare and expensive, but it showed me enough to get me hooked.

Im sure it will be  able to give photos of some objects but again dont expect too much plus you will need a host of other stuff to be able to take photos, and thats a whole new can of worms. The mount being the key here, you will need a tracking mount, such as Skywatcher Star adventurer or similar if you are using the kit as a travel scope.

Using the scope with a camera on a photo tripod/mount will only result in dissappointment Im afraid.

Ill have a manfrotto tripod and then hopefully this scope for normal viewing... hmm im sure if messier objects were discovered with basic telescope then this should be more than enough in dark skies with very low to none light pollution like in the pics ive taken...link is above.

For visual it will be fine on a manfrotto tripod. You will be able to view things like M31, M13, M42 etc, it will be good on clusters and double stars. OK on the moon and ok on the brighter planets but will struggle with detail due to its arpeture.

The scope will no doubt come with a couple of stock eyepieces, which will be fine to get you going but I would advise, that when funds allow, investing in a couple of decent eyepieces, it will make a good scope even better.

 

Sorry my last reply was misunderstood I replied thinking you wanted to photograph through the scope.

 

There was no light pollution when Messier was around so even though his scope was lesser quality than todays available scopes of similar size he had a distinct advantage over us.
