  • Excerpt: I bought this on sale for half price. When you do your research, you will realize this model is discontinued by Celestron (a well-known brand). The 114EQ replaced the AZ model. Essentially the only difference is the EQ has a counter weight on the tripod.

  • Excerpt: I picked it up on special today, @ 179.99 it's a decent entry level telescope, sadly it's plagued by a terrible mount. The clutch system is so loose that the whole thing seems to wobble whenever you aim at something and try to tighten it.

Quite good

  • Excerpt: The optics on this unit are excellent. Optics are clear, bright, and easy to focus. Perhaps better suited to terrestrial viewing than astronomical, as this does not include a 4, 5, or 6 mm eyepiece (recommended for high magnification/detail).
