Celestron Regal 65 F-ED

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 18, 2010
I use this scope for birding and grab and go for checking out the moon/ planets. The view is very sharp throughout it's zoom range, the zoom eyepiece is high quality for a stock piece. The rotating collar is excellent; when you want to sit and birdwatch, you loosen the collar, rotate scope and look through the angled eyepiece as if you had a straight through scope. Using 1.25" astro eyepieces was a selling point for me but learned that not any eyepiece can be used, the literature is misleading, see this link, it explains alot. http://www.celestron.com/c3/support3/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=2329 . The scope is on the heavy side, not a big deal for me, but you will need a decent tripod head. I am using the Bogen/Manfrotto 701HDV fluid head which is excellent. You can position the scope so it is very balanced on the tripod. Overall fit and finish is very nice. Celestron's limited lifetime warranty and OpticsPlanet price sealed the deal. This scope will give any of the more expensive names a run for the money at a third to half the price. Again, sharp optics through the zoom range, adjustable tripod collar (great feature), price and warranty are the selling points. I highly recommend this scope.
Pros: sharp optics, adjustable tripod collar, astro eyepieces
Cons: heavy...
Would recommend: Yes
