Good choice for 1st scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 15, 2009
Look, you get what you pay for. For the money you can't complain. A scope like this should be in the 350-400 range so this is a good deal. Nice options and the image quality is fine.
Pros: Decent optics for the price, easy to use...
Would recommend: Yes

Great Telescope "READ THIS"...

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on December 29, 2008
Great telescope, goto works excellent and tracks wonderfully for such an inexpensive unit. Buy yourself a good lens kit and set the scope up pointing north and make sure it's level. Learn the sky a little before you use so you can aline by stars. I've been looking at Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, the Orion Nebula, star clusters and the Andromeda Galaxy. I can't wait to see more...
Pros: Easy to use.
Cons: Must know a little about astronomy and how to set up....
Would recommend: Yes

great telescope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on August 18, 2008
Nice telescope for beginners, all you have to do is do a little research on how to use it.One nice thing about the on-board computer is it points out objects for u in the sky and follows them for u.The telescope is very good for view stars and deep space objects.The only thing i don't like about the telescope is that the lens that come with it don't have very good image quality when viewing stars and planets, getting nicer lens were easy though, and made a big difference.Putting together the telescope when u get it is very easy,just make sure u don't screw in the screws in the back cause it will re-position the mirror and mess up how the telescope views objects in the sky.
Pros: onboard computer is nice once u learn how to use it.
Cons: The lens that come with the telescope have bad picture quality when viewing the stars....

Using The Northstar 4.5 goto reflector

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on May 9, 2008
Turn on the computer and play with it. Unless you can't do a single thing without written instructions, anyone, even a semi retarded monkey can use this scope. Make sure the scope is on level ground and make sure you've done a really good job of aligning the finderscope. Do these simple tasks and the heavens are at the touch of a button. Oh yea, buy some other lenses, supplied lens can go right in the garbage.
Pros: Lightweight, easy set up and take down, great views.
Cons: Slightly jittery tri-pod on hard surface. Try using in the grass....

Bushnell NorthStar 675x4.5" Reflector Telescope Real Voice Output 788846

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 1, 2007
I would like to review my telescope for you but I have not been able to get the thing to calibrate. After following the directions in the owners manual, it still won't find the calibration star. So I can't use any of the nice features that the unit has. I can tell you that I can see the moon really well using the manual adjustment.
