The NorthStar Telescope from Bushnell makes it possible for amateur astronomers to identify, locate, and track celestial objects with simple, push-button control. The 645-millimeter x 4.5-inch reflector model features a power-boosting Barlow Lens for increased magnifications of 45x, 135x, 225x, and 675x. These powerful optics combine with the computer-driven location technology with a built-in database of 20,000 celestial objects, to unveil the mysteries of the night sky. The telescope comes with a hand-held remote control module that allows you to call up your target by entering a simple "Go To" command. The NorthStar computer then locates the target, and once locked on to the target, tracks it automatically for prolonged viewing. Meanwhile, the innovative RVO (Real Voice Output) feature on the remote provides a fun, interactive way to explore the night sky. The telescope also features a 1x wide-angle, red dot, finderscope that allows the user to quickly sight in on areas of the sky and find objects quickly. The NorthStar Telescope comes complete with a quick-release tripod, kinematic mount, and an accessory tray for fast, easy assembly.

Reflector Optics
The optical system in a reflector uses a primary mirror to reflect the light from a distant object so that it can be focused to a point and magnified by an eyepiece. Popularized by Sir Isaac Newton in the 17th Century, it is sometimes referred to as a Newtonian reflector.

Barlow Lens
The Barlow Lens is an auxiliary lens that increases the power by a factor to increase the magnification power of the telescope.

"GO TO" Computerized Star Locator
The Go To Star Locator utilizes an on-board computer and advanced motorized technology to allow you to quickly locate and automatically follow over 20,000 pre-programmed astronomical objects with the touch of a button. Educational descriptions of each object are also provided.

Talking, Hand-Held, Remote Control Module
The hand-held control module features red, backlit push buttons and a red, illuminated LCD read-out for easy viewing that won't impair your night vision. The talking feature of the remote describes the night sky with the touch of a button, in a real human voice.

Kinematic Mount
This simple yet high-precision altaz mount features three points of contact in both the horizontal and vertical planes for optimum shape so that you can set up your view quickly, easily, and accurately.

It was all damaged when I received it.
Sussan Harpster
We couldn't see the sky, the ground or anything else. and you have to go through this long process that doesn't work every time you want to star gaze.
Bonnie Weymouth
I've tried other eyepieces which make this scope perform much better so I know it is the eyepieces.

I've got the 3 inch version of this telescope, but the comments apply here as well (so I figured I'd save someone some trouble by posting here, too):

Everything bad you've read in the other reviews is all 100% true. From the lack of tracking, poor go-to (because it doesn't keep the time after you've set it), to the way over exaggerated magnification claims, shaky mount-- all true.

I've had one of these scopes for about 4-5 years (got it as a gift). I used it once or twice but couldn't do anything but look at the moon with it. It went in the attic (where most cheap scopes end up) after a short time...

Then I gave it to my sister (she kept it when I moved-- I was going to throw it away). She gave it back after about a year because she couldn't get it to focus. Only useful for the moon she says (couldn't get the computer to work at all-- her fault there-- read on).

Since that time, however, I learned a lot about telescopes in general. So when I got it back, I figured out why it wouldn't focus with the included 4mm eyepiece or the supplied 3x barlow. It was WAY out of collimation. Collimation wasn't even mentioned in the manual at all. They assume it is always in collimation. If a scope gets out of collimation it is useless so it is strange not to put it in the manual at all.

So I take out the primary mirror and mark the center spot with a red sharpie (you need to mark the center of the primary mirror for collimation-- this one doesn't come pre-marked). I put it back in and use a cheshire eyepiece (used for collimation) to line up the optics. Now I knew why there were no instructions on collimating. This thing is almost impossible to collimate! The secondary mirror basically falls out when you loosen any ONE of the set screws!

The telescope is dissappointing. It is difficult to focus and the magnification is much less than I anticipated. I have yet to be able to use the extension eyepiece.

Got it used without any lenses 3rd hand for less than $50. Invested in a Zhumell eyepiece set. Came with four lenses, a 2x barlow and 7 assorted filters with recommendations on which planets to use each for, including a moon filter. Also ordered a standard old fashioned Collimator. Got both in the male after work on Fri. Collimated and lined up the site scope while the sun was still up. Was able to catch jaw dropping views of the moon right after night fall. This is not a bad scope at all. I am planning on getting a bigger one soon, but this is awesome and a lot of fun learning on. Plus the digital control really makes it easy, I found, to control views of the moon with out touching it by had. I look forward to learning the auto control features of this thing...the sky tour, point and identify. I read the reviews on here before I bought it. I was not expecting this quality and sharpness of views. I look forward to having many enjoyable expeditions with this scope. I think it's great.

This product was an awful disappointment. We couldn't see the sky, the ground or anything else. and you have to go through this long process that doesn't work every time you want to star gaze. After several disappointing attempts, we sent it back.
