I am extremely happy with this celestron telescope. The software was pretty easy to use and the scope is quite light overall.

Great starter telescope

by John

This scope is really great for the price. I added some lens and eyeieces immediately and was able to get a great view of Saturn, Jupiter, and on clear nights can see even more detail.

Excellent Telescope

by Amanda H.

This model exceeds my expectations. Views are crisp and the aperture is large enough to allow you to see many objects.

Worth the Investment

by Chris C.

I did extensive research before purchasing this telescope. The views have been great, and I love auto-track! I also bought some additional accessories for the telescope, namely an additional power supply and the lens and filter kit. I am so happy with this purchase.

Great Telescope

by Dave P.

IThis is the best telescope ever. The moon is amazing and I can see the Cassini Division as well as Titan! The computing system is very easy to operate and I also picked up the accessory kit which has made the telescope even better. I use the scope as often as possible.
