I have been using this PowerTank to power my AVX telescope mount only, and it literally lasts for several hours. I have followed the instructions that come along with the device and I have not had any problems with it (as some other reviewers claimed that have faced).
Just what I expected- great for looking at stars, planet and easy to transport...wish they included a case though
The celestron powertank is a very handy and convenience must have item in your astronomy checklist. Excellent power source for your telescope mount, and other activities like camping. Provide a nice variety of ports, USB x 2, 12v x 2 and other options.
Finally got the SE 5 outdoors lastnight and sighted it on Jupiter for a quick solar system align (which worked better than I thought it would). Quick focus and she showed up in the eyepiece with the Galilean moons. I added a 2x barlow to the included 25mm eyepeice and I could see the bands!
MY SHORT REVIEW: This is a great Telescope, Mount and Tripod. It's a good size for portability, it has exceptional image quality, it's easy to use and is made of quality materials. MY LONG REVIEW: On my first night of good seeing and clear skies I was able to see fantastic views of a Waxing Crescent...
Although I have only used it a couple of times, the Power Tank gives plenty of long lasting power to run my Nexstar 6SE. I don't use the bright white light to conserve dark adapted vision but it would come in handy if needed. I like the ample length of the cable.
This is a must have if you are mounting a Celestron Star Pointer Red-Dot Finderscope and sill want to mount your camera on your telescope. A great idea Celestron.
No problems or issues. Good optics. Good mechanics. Fully assembled weight 10,3 kg. Eats batteries fast, need a powerbank. Included finder is cheap plastic, will throw away.Tripod is very good. Good focuser.Star diagonal is 9/10, but it is prism type.
I needed a power source to power my older Meade telescope. This exactly what I needed. I like the dual ports for 12 v and USB. The flashlight and the spot light are perfect for setting up. Great product!!!
It works perfect, I need to test it for hours just to see how much time I can use it without charging
