My expectations were really high after reading the reviews but still it was difficult to accept that such an inexpensive telescope could deliver excellent results. It has surpassed my expectations.I would recommend the celestron or meade 8-24mm zoom eyepiece.
I recommend this scope. The main telescope and tripod is good quality. Just be prepared to by better lenses.
Affordable, easy to set up, great resolution with right lenses, helpful software.
Lenses included with telescope are poor quality. Finderscope is cheap.
Everything was well presented to put together and set up. Useful for sky watching for the price. The Celestron Starry Night software is a marvelous side benefit great simulation and very detailed down to Cassini, asteriods if it is known it is there.
If you are expecting to get Hubble quality images, you won't. If you are expecting to get a finely, hand crafted, precision instrument, you don't. However, it is a fine scope for the money. The mount is a bit sloppy. The tripod a little wobbly.
The telescope comes with a counter weight that is way too heavy. I am using one only a fraction of the weight so I do not strip the gears in the equatorial alt -azimuth mount. The screw holes in the mount were too small and I had to do some light fabrication to make them larger.
As an amateur astronomer, a beginner. I require assistance in setting up and using this scope. I knew this from the beginning. Am joining a star gazer group for moral and technical help. I found out that my telescope is stronger than what most have now. Plus it's motor drive adaptable.
Love my Celestron 127EQ great telescope everything in the box works great it was a nice start package for a recently user of Refractor telescopes Bird-Jones design ive heard many out there say it wasnt that great of telescope. Me i love it i think it was good design and new change.
I'm just a novice but this works great. Totally satisfied.
This is exactly what is advertised. I almost couldn't believe the price, but I've used this to view planets and can make out the moons of Jupiter and Saturn's rings! The moon also looks stunning!!
Love my little starter telescope! Perfect for the first time hobbyist like myself So far I've seen Jupiter + moons and a few weeks ago saw Saturn for the first time...amazing!
