Nice Telescope with a few Mirror Alignment Issues

I got this one as a Christmas gift. It seemed like a good telescope for basic astronomy, with many nice features. But I was initially quite disappointed by the fact that the images seemed rather blurry. It took me two weeks to correct this problem, to the point where now I am finally starting to like it.

I have no comparison for this other than the more simplistic Refractor Telescope my father got me as a kid…so now the circle continues, as I got this for my own son. This is the type I always dreamed of getting as a kid, but back then these were in the $500 range and easily too much for my parents growing up. The price point on this for what it offers is awesome, and I selected this after about 6-8 hours of reviewing specs, feedback, and much contemplation. It was this or the 114mm longer tube version, and I opted for this in the end (I figured this had a little more power and it looked more portable than the longer tube of the 114, since we have to go somewhere to view the sky due to the forested yard we have). We have taken it out twice now, & I was NOT disappointed, HOWEVER, a few pointers will definitely help if you’re thinking of getting this, to give you the best success chance possible:

Well built, nicely designed, versatile 1000mm Newtonian Telescope at an affordable price!! A must have if you love astronomy like I do and it won’t break the bank! Stunning views of Jupiter and all six moons on the first night I used my 127EQ with Gosky 25mm eyepiece and 2x Barlow lens! Open cluster star system and white dwarf star was beautiful as well. Tips: Follow setup manual carefully, make sure to polar align the scope (north or south), make sure to balance your Celestron 127EQ Telescope for ease of use and proper location of object/star coordinates (Dec/RA), download the Sky Portal Free App is a must have from Celestron. Recommend a laser sight finder for easy pointing as an upgrade to stock sight finderĀ 

Decent scope at a great price

Very cost effective and gives some great views, but definitely not for the hardcore astronomer looking for deep space objects or distant planets with great detail. For the price, you will be hard pressed to find an aperture as big. The eye pieces it comes with are pretty much all garbage, including the Barlow lens they give you. The only decent one is the image correcting eyepiece (flips the image right side up) so you can use it in the daytime. I am currently using it with a my own 2x Barlow and my 8-24 zoom eyepiece. I believe the max useful magnification is 250x,(never smart to go over the max magnification b/c the focus gets hard to manage), and the focal length is 1000mm with 2x barlow= 2000mm. Divide that by 8mm and u have 250x magnification, which is the max useful magnification rated for this scope. Formula for figuring out your magnification: Focal length mm x Barlow / Eyepiece mm = Magnification. If you need help understanding the formula better (it applies to ALL scopes), google it!

Before buying this scope I read all the reviews even though this scope a some negative reviews I decided to buy it anyway. I am honestly very happy with this scope I can see how someone impatient can get frustrated with it but if you do not have patience then astronomy is not the hobby for you. Given that do not expect Hubble like images from this scope but I live about twenty miles out side of the city and so far have been able to se the orion nebula, lagoon nebula, M57 (the ring nebula), galaxies M81 and M82, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus , and the Beehive cluster. I personally am very pleased with the views from this scope but the max magnification for this it is about 150X. given that you will almost never be able to use the 4 mm eye piece mainly because of seeing conditions just aren’t good enough. So I recommend getting anywhere from a 7 mm to 10 mm eye piece to add to this scope other than that this is a good scope and will show you some amazing thing in our universe.

Good Value For Moon & Planets

I have a nice 8″ reflector but wanted a lightweight, portable one for solar use. While far from perfect this entry-level scope does the job.
