Long wait, well worth it!

by Astrofan, from United States, CO Written on October 21, 2014
My telescope finally arrived. I am so glad that I waited fro my Starnavigator 130. I was up and observing, finding objects, galaxies, nebulas and planets in a short time. The computer control really makes a difference in locating objects. The audio feature is such a plus as it is educational. Astronomy is so much more enjoyable with this telescope.

Very happy with it!...

Exceptional Computerized Telescope with Great Views of the Moon, Planets & Deep Space Objects

by Mike A., from United States, CA Written on October 17, 2014
Purchased this telescope for my son and I to do some stargazing with at our lake house. The StarNavigator was easy to set up and easy to align. As we started navigating the sky we came across many amazing objects and found the scope to be pretty enjoyable.

Our only complaint is that we wish meade offered a portable power supply as using batteries or the ac adapter isn't always convenient....
Pros:
  • Ease of use
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

DS-2114 uses same DS-2000 single arm

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, IN Written on December 6, 2012
no parts are available to fix must be sent in have repaired and repair cost was more then I payed for scope. I used the scope off and on for a week 1st year and then stored it in the box it came in for a few years and whin I tryed to use it again. It broke in the house as I was getting familiar with the alignment again. The Left Right moter started to move then made some clicking sounds since the warranty was long over and I am a electroinc repair tech I open it to see if I could fix it and found that the drive moter mount was made of thin plastic that had reacted to the factory lube on gears and had crumbled to pieces. Could not get any parts to repair from meade in fact the tech there wanted $28 just to talk to me in short if you want to use the scope for more then the 1 year warranty do not get this mount
Pros: works great for a year
Cons: plastic parts in drive motors brake the next year...
Would recommend: No
