Legacy Reviewer's Review of Celestron NexStar 102 SLT Refractor Telescopes 22096

An overall decent telescope with a nice computerized database of sky objects for your convenience. However, it's very difficult to align correctly, often moving 330 degrees to the right to reach an object that would be 30 degrees to the left, and often pointing in the wrong direction than the desired object. A major flaw is it's lack of power adapter at shipping, requiring the use of eight AA batteries, which burn out after about 45 minutes. Since it's almost impossible to move without batteries, it's kind essential that it should come with a power adapter... Otherwise a nice scope.
Pros: Copmuterized, good all-around for starters, sturdy design
Cons: Doesn't come with power cable, near impossible to operate without power, motor breaks easily, hard to align
