Excellent!

  • Excerpt: Got this telescope for the family during Christmas. Extremely easy to set up. Brought it out the first night and we were able to easily see the moon as well as some cool stars. The stand does shake easily if bumped, but I can imagine it being built much mor sturdy.

  • Summary: This is our first telescope and for the price we were very impressed with the quality and overall feel. It seems much sturdier and well built than I expected.

Beginners Only

  • Summary: Selected 70EQ for tween boys based on it being a refractor scope (good for newbies), available reviews and perceived comparative value. Total setup time about 60 mins, but was not difficult. Tripod is not solid, though vibrations dampen fairly quickly. 70EQ comes w/10mm & 20mm eyepieces.
  • Pros: Setup, weight, size, ease of use (after a little practice)
  • Cons: No short eyepiece, sky map excludes planets

Celestron AstroMaster 70EQ Telescope

  • Summary: Is a great purchase, but I need a stronger lense to see the moon better! It is a bit akward in size to move around easily; to obtain the best viewing of birds in flight!.

  • Summary: I purchased this telescope for my 7 year old daughter for Christmas. I had a similar telescope as a kid when I was her age and experienced years of joy with it and wanted to share those with her. The optics provide a reasonable view of easy to find objects.
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: Mount is a little shaky
