  • Excerpt: I ordered a Celestron telescope for my husband as a Christmas gift. Not only did the product arrive promptly on my doorstep by UPS but was in fine condition. My husband was thrilled to be able to track and identify constellations and see the moon up close and personal.

  • Excerpt: This is a great starter scope. I'm brand new to the hobby and found some great galaxies, planets, and starts on my first trip out. Easy to use, easy to setup, and doesn't take up a lot of room.

  • Excerpt: After reading several articles and reviews, I decided that this was the best scope for me. I didn't want to under spend and be disappointed and like the idea of the goto function since I'm inexperienced. The packaging was done very well and the overall appearance is professional.

Excellent choice for the budget

  • Excerpt: This is a great entry-to-mid level astronomical telescope, which is great for observing solar planets. It has excellent optics; I compared it with NexStar SE 6 and can barely notice difference but NexStar Se 6 is almost double priced.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Not Powerful Enough

  • Excerpt: I use this scope for quick set-up astronomy. I took it on vacation and was able to wow a few guests. The Nexstar sets up easy, travels well (I use a cheap plastic toolbox for transporting the optics tube. The foam packing the tube was shipped in fits perfect.

  • Excerpt: I've been wanting to buy a telescope for some time. I love looking up at night viewing our wonderful sky. I searched and view many articles, videos and price comparison, for a new beginner. Easy to setup and use. B&H had the best price for this telescope, packing and delivery was on time!

  • Excerpt: I use this scope as a quick grab and go scope for rapid setup and easy portability, while not spending a lot of $. I have much larger, bulkier scopes that will show a lot more, but this one will surprise you with what it will show. Easy to learn and has accurate computerized pointing.

Impressed So Far

  • Excerpt: So far this scope has proven easy to use. Mount seems very smooth and solid. Nice size. Nice weight. Easier by far to move than my 8" SCG. Optics seem pretty well made. Have only had it out a few times and seeing conditions have not been good, so have not yet seen it in action under nice clear skies...
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight, Portable, Quality Lenses
