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...
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.
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
Excerpt: I bought this scope to view planets from my window. Very versatile and easy to maneuver unlike other styles. Just need extra eye pieces as it only comes with one. B&H had the best price and were fast with shipping.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
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
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
