Wonderful Observational Telescope!

  • Excerpt: As expected from Celestron, the OTA (optical tube assembly) is top-notch for this price range. Collimation was perfect when it arrived, and the closed and compact Schmidt-Cassegrain design requires little maintenance.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult To Focus, Unstable

  • Excerpt: This was my first telescope, and it's been really fun to take out and use. I've learned that using a telescope takes practice, and I haven't gotten to the point of seeing planets or deep sky objects as of yet. However, you can see the constellations much more clearly.

Back order delay, missing Manual pages!!

Gunner, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
13 September 2014
  • Excerpt: While I have received the scope itself, and looks to be a good product, I am put off by the fact that all the rest of the 'package' or 'bundle' has been back ordered. And the instruction Manual was a MESS, with lots of missing pages and several duplicate pages.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Durable
  • Cons: Difficult Assembly
