Package Surprise

  • Excerpt: I ordered my telescope Wednesday and it came in on Saturday on the same week. I wasn't expecting it for another two weeks so I was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to put together and can't wait till the clouds clear and I can go out and take it for a spin
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Assemble

A Good Choice

  • Excerpt: The weather in Chicago hasn't been too compliant, but so far this telescope is proving to be a good choice. Sky Align was a little more time consuming for the third point. The telescope is a good first choice for me.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Quality Lenses

Great Beginner Telescope

  • Excerpt: This is my first telescope and I am very pleased with it. The clarity is amazing and when dialed in correctly will follow an object through the sky the entire night. Of course I'm usually bouncing around and checking out several sights so I don't zero in on just one thing for long periods of time. But you can return to an object with ease which I have done many times.
  • Pros: Easy to Use

My first goto telescope

Philip, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
28 November 2014
  • Excerpt: First I want to say that this was my second purchase from Telescopes.com. Great pricing and excellent customer service on both orders so I'll be back again.<br /><br />I purchased the telescope, lens and power tank combo. This review is for the telescope and included hardware only. As others have stated the stand is a bit wobbly, but it's not as bad as some make it sound. A set of vibration suppression pads resolves this.
  • Pros: Assemble And Go, Easy To Assemble, Great Beginner Telescope, Great value for the money, Quality design
  • Cons: Lcd Is Tricky To Read, Stand Is A Little Wobbly

Extremely happy

Larry, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
20 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I am not a beginner but it has been years since my last telescope, a Celestron C90 which my son has now taken over with my very hardy approval. It was a good starter telescope. I wanted to move ahead but not to extreme for my next scope. I purchased another Celestron due my very satisfied use of the the previous model. The packaged arrived in great shape and I found the instructions for assembling was very easy to follow.

Telescope was easy to setup

Patrick, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
7 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The Nexstar 130SLT was extremely easy to setup and start using immediately. The alignment function is very easy to use for a beginner. I've only been able to use it one night so far but I spent hours searching and viewing and trying different eyepieces and filters. The only downsides are the manual is a bit out of date. (still mentions Win95) and the PC interface still uses a Serial DB9 connector. The Power Tank will work with an extra cable for about $25.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
