Celestron AstroMaster 76EQ Telescope
25 October 2015
Summary: Oscar had a big cancer scare. In reflecting on his life, he discovered the moon and stars. Hospital bills took their toll, this telescope purchase was an inexpensive gift from his wife and he has loved every moment that he spends looking up at the sky with his wife (my sister) by his side.
Summary: Small long-focal length reflectors such as this one have a reputation for being good planetary and double star performers. I didn't know what to expect with the Celestron Astromaster 76EQ, but when I saw that this scope had a collimatable primary mirror at a camera store in Dublin, my hopes ran high...
Pros: excellent optics good eq mount price is right
Cons: the star pointer the 20mm erect-view eyepiece
Summary: I did a lot of research on telescopes before I made my purchase. This was a Father's Day present for my husband from my son. I didn't have a ton of money to spend on one, but I didn't want to buy a piece of junk either. I was very happy with this purchase, as was my husband.
Excerpt: We use it mostly for planet and star gazing, but we love checking out the moon. We have also done some bird watching.it works wonderfully. It's a little heavy but otherwise we are extremely happy . What a great value.
Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: Not worth for even $50 bucks. The best I could see is a closeup of the full moon but I could get that with a good binoculars which will cost lot less than this one and is easy to spot the large moon..forget about spotting Jupiter or any other distance planets as this product indicates.
