This Scope has excellent optics. The tripod is shaky but it may be reduced with the anti-vibration pads. I would recommend this scope to any newcomer and Amateur and it is lite so you could take it anywhere. I am surprised on the Quality of the optics. The stars are like pin-points and the planets focus superbly. Excellent Scope for the money.

Author: michael , novice telescope user, from lubbock, texas on Mar 27, 2012
Pros:  wonderful telescope. I get a new thrill just about every time I use it.
Cons:  A little difficult to get the computer star finder to work. No help from the factory (beyond rude...spent nearly two hours on hold and still got nothing but nasty E-mail comments. Even the distributer had no idea what the problem was. Took a while but now works beautifully.
Would recommend:  yes

Do not attempt to get the manufacturer to help. They are in business only because their product is so wonderful.

I got this telescope for my husband for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. Every night he goes out on the lanai to observe & is so excited over the ability of the telescope to track and find the galaxies. He can see the red spot on Jupiter. Absolutely love this.

Pros:  Excellent optics
Cons:  Bad Mount
Would recommend:  yes

Peter Tos wrote:

Great scope for the price. This is a 127mm Maksutov Design with great optics. Colours are APO like. I can use on planetary up to 250X magnification without loss of details. The only issue is the mount seem to be a bit fragile to carry this big sized OTA. But for visual use it will be more than sufficient.

Pros:  Good for the Price
Cons:  Sky Align is very poor
Would recommend:  yes

MrRich wrote:

I am a telemetry engineer and have a lot of experience with tracking antennas. I found the Celestron sky align and tracking to be extreamly poor. It is not usable. It can only get you within the general vicinity of an object +/- 10degrees. So you better have your finder scope very well aligned and know exactly what your looking at if you expect to put an object into your field of view. We had to use my sons iTouch app to find all but the most obvious objects.
