Great first scope.
15 August 2014
Excerpt: Perfect telescope for the beginner and the price is reasonable. Have had a few nights that where clear skies and enjoyed looking at the moon. Looking forward to many more nights looking up. Yes you could pay more and get better but for someone just starting out it does what's it meant to and a good piece of equipment to start out with.
Pros: price, user friendly, Good price, great first telescope
Excerpt: After going to a local observatory I became inquisitive and decided to buy myself a telescope,not wanting to spend a lot of money I surfed the net for a site from which to make my purchase,thats when I found Oz Scopes. Then it was a matter of which one,I compared prices and specs and decided on a Celestron 114mm EQ..
Pros: light, easy to carry, price, portability, Positive adjustments, great first telescope, adjustments, quality +++
Excerpt: Great first telescope. I can see i will be wanting a bigger aperture in the near future. It was easy to setup and get looking at the moon the first night. The delivery was very fast as well. Absolutely would recommend to anyone interested in star gazing.
Excerpt: The instrument arrived in very good time and in excellent condition. Setting up was easy with the clear step-by-step instructions illustrated with good quality photographs. First light was about 30 minutes later after I had roughly aligned the mount. We observed Sol by projection onto a clipboard. Three sunspots on the limb (not sure which!) greeted us. Terrestrial viewing was clear and crisp.
Pros: portability, light weight, Good price, Decent glass, Positive adjustments, great first telescope, quality +++, Beautifully crisp image!
