Meade Equatorial Reflector Telescopes are a favorite of amateur astronomers providing the most light-gathering for the investment. Meade 114EQ-ASTR 114mm/ 4.5" Equatorial Reflector Telescope 04066 is perfect for observing the Moon and planets like Saturn and Jupiter in detail. With Meade 114 EQ ASTR Reflecting Telescope you can also view deep space objects like the Great Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy. Meade 114EQ AST R Telescope assembles in minutes and includes everything you need to explore the universe. Large 114mm Diameter Reflective Mirror of the Meade 114 EQ ASTR Telescope captures more light for brighter images and greater detail (361% more light than a 60mm telescope). Meade 114EQ AST R Telescope features Red Dot Viewfinder and makes locating objects quick and easy. This red-dot projection viewfinder allows for easy acquisition of guide stars while star-hopping between celestial targets. Meade Equatorial Reflector Telescope 114EQ-ASTR includes two 1.25" Eyepieces (MA 9mm, MA 25mm) for low to high power observing. These two Meade Telescope Eyepieces provide more power than you'll ever need. Any astronomer will tell you that light gathering - not power - is what matters. A small, crisp image is better than a large hazy one. Meade 1.25" eyepieces feature wider fields of view, allowing you to see more of the sky at greater magnifications. Additional telescope eyepieces and other optional accessories are available right here.Meade 114 mm EQ ASTR Reflector Telescope 04066 comes with Meade AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software on DVD. Amazing planetarium software and the Meade Instructional Video will teach you the night sky and how to use your Meade Telescope. Meade Auto Star Suite Software displays more than 10,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies and nebulas. You can print out star charts and even plan your observing sessions. Because the earth rotates once on its axis every 24 hours, celestial objects move rapidly through the telescopic field, particularly at higher powers. Also included is the full-length adjustable aluminum tripod w/ accessory shelf. A first look at the rings of Saturn or the craters of the Moon can inspire a lifetime of exploration. Go to any star party anywhere in the world and you'll see more Meade Telescopes than any other. The EQ Equatorial Mount of Meade 114EQ-ASTR Equatorial Reflector Telescope 04066 greatly facilitates object tracking, simply by manually turning one or both of the control cables.

Most Recent Review Meade 114 EQ ASTR Kit by Legacy Reviewer, September 4, 2010
Excellent first scope. Best eyepiece I've seen in a beginner scope. Works best with the lower power eyepiece. Pros: A lot of bang for the buck. Cons: Will need a "handy" adult to set it up.
