decent refractor telescope

  • Excerpt: good starting refractor microscope. don't use up your batteries, buy the battery pack. it doesn't use up much power. i think the hard part is calibrating the scope with the telescope and understanding the alignment process. also get the 2x barlow for better star and planet viewing.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic deal for a refractor telescope. This is my 6th telescope. I have newts and schmits.My best schmit is a c8in and nwt is a 12in. This is my first refractor. I always wanted one but cost for aperture was was too expensive.The slt 102 seemed worth a try. I am so happy I did.

Perfect telescope for anyone

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic telescope for a beginner or experienced astronomer. By upgrading the eyepieces and diagonal you'll get a high quality observing instrument. Beginners will have a small learning curve but once you understand the controls you'll be able to tour the universe.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Good value, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Very good front lens
  • Cons: Cheap eyepieces diagona

Spend a bit more and get something else

  • Excerpt: SLT handpiece light flickers on and off after a while, making a torch neccessary for using it.View is very limited with supllied eyepieces.Unstable. Hard to focus due to instability.Basically, the SLT doesn't work, we can never find 3 bright stars that it recognises.It is a kids toy product, buy...
  • Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Difficult To Focus, Unstable

NexStar 102

  • Summary: This is a really easy scope to use, But buy re-chargeable battiers, and save money. scope works great with land and sea objects, even so much as to say a 4 mm lens, only wish it came with a 40 mm lens.read up on the stars first, and remember it takes time to see the really cool stuff.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Good starter Kit
  • Cons: Eats Battiers really fast
