Outstanding Value Intermediate Telescope

26 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I Bought this telescope as an upgrade from a beginner 3" Reflector with a wobbly Alt-Az mount. First off, the mount for this telescope is a beast (in a great way)! Heavy duty and stable, which comes at the cost of weighing a lot, but the best optics are rendered useless with a bad mount so it's well...
  • Pros: Compact, Stable mount, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Only one eyepiece

  • Excerpt: Wonderful G4 mount for any scope and this is a great grab and go scope. Compliments my 10 inch dob for portability perfectly. Not a professional level photography scope but have already seen the great Orion Nebula and jupitor first night out in Boston.

Great closeout price

10 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Half of the price covers the HD CG-4 German Equatorial Mount & 1.75" Steel Leg Adjustable Tripod. There are few solid tripods of this quality at this price. A motor can be added later for under $. The optical tube is about average for a 127cc.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: A Little Heavy But Solid, Not very portable

Superb optics but poor Equatorial Mount

Jim B, B&H Photo
22 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased the Omni 127 which features the venerable and highly regarded Celestron 5" f/10 optical tube assembly on the CG-4 Equatorial mount. The 5-inch optics can only be described as extraordinary, some of the finest I have used in a half century of observing.
  • Pros: Excellent Quality Optics, No Focuser Image Shift, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Instructions Very Poor, Poor mount

Great Scope

15 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this as a gift for my girlfriend. We're both big fans of science and space, and I wanted to go beyond a beginner level scope. It's worth every penny. The tripod mount on this is very very stable and sturdy, handling the scope with ease. The fluid motion is smooth and easily assembled.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
