This is my first telescope. After reading other reviews I expected to buy new eyepieces but was still disappointed with the 4mm one Celestron included. It is practically useless. I have had fun with it and am learning every time I take it out. The RA and Dec adjustment cables both broke within a week and rather than mess with Celestron I repaird them myself. Overall, the scope is good, but Celestron cut corners on the small things which is irritating.

Bought a second for a gift... Declination worm gear on mount was stripped out and plastic clamps on tripod legs were all cracked (should be made of metal!!!!). Instead of returning and not having a gift ready I decided to give my telescope and deal with Celestron's warranty/support department. BAD IDEAL! You think calling a telescope dealer's Tech/Warranty department they would have a clue about basic telescope mount parts...not! It took me 30 min just to describe the THEIR Declination mount system and parts. Then since there was a language (English!!) barrier I told them I would send in the parts with a letter describing the problem. A few weeks latter I received another used tripod that wasn't cracked but without any Declination parts. Called them back and parts dept threw away all the parts and they didn't write down anything about the Dec. parts. They then told me to send them a picture and they would send the part. No part...called them again then they said they wouldn't send the part ...

Got tired of my 30 year old refractor and for the price took a chance. Easy build...used a communications tower to adjust view finder (View Finder is junk compared to the quality of the tube) in-which I had to put plastic around the V/F to be-able to tighten it down and adjust right. Adjust your V/F using this method or if you bump it, at night, use the moon/distant street light to readjust. Lens set is also low quality but you can still make out Saturn's rings (as one large) and Titan...for about the cost of the scope buy the lens set (with filters). Bought the collimation tool (a must have) and found main mirror out just a bit after using a CCD camera...made great view outstanding! The mount is the same that my 30+ scope came with...you can only use one axis without modifying to use a motor drive set for astro-imaging. Also the mount/tri-pod is rickety...just make sure to retighten everything after moving. Overall, if you will be just using this scope for basic use/starter...I don't just ...
