Product Description

Even beginning stargazers can catch stunning views of the next comet with Celestron's Cometron 114AZ. Designed specifically for viewing comets, Cometron 114AZ offers a 114 mm parabolic mirror to capture the sharpest views of even dim comets on their journey toward the Sun. Two high-quality Kellner eyepieces are included to enhance your views. The simple Newtonian reflector optical design, altazimuth mount, and included red-dot finderscope make it easy to navigate the night sky. A steel tripod provides stability. Cometron 114AZ is also a perfect instrument for viewing objects in our solar system and beyond. Its wide field of view renders the Moon, the Milky Way galaxy, and the rings of Saturn in impressive detail. You'll even be able to observe the moons of Jupiter as well as distant objects like the Orion Nebula.

I was please with all the cosmetic aspects of the scope. Generally, it is well made. Probably good for a kid. But there are issues. I am a life long astronomer and have owned over 20 telescopes and understand their plusses and minuses. This scope has a small f/ratio. As such, collimation is very important. So, let's begin. First, the eyepiece focus tube was located perhaps a quarter of an inch too close to the primary mirror and the required repositioning could not be compensated for by moving the secondary. This, in itself, would not really affect overall collimation , but only mean that part of the primary reflection would not be utilized.

The actual collimation with a Cheshire eyepiece was doable, but even then I think the images should have been better. I was hard to see any belts on Jupiter, something that should be accomplish able at 40 power with this scope. Stars appeared ok, but this is a low power scope, so that is to be expected. The Orion nebula looked ok..

Bottom line, I would recommend spending a little more money and getting a higher f/ratio dobsonian.Say an f/7. I do not think that you can get , or should expect to get, a good cheap, f/3 reflector . This scope might work OK(sort of) for star clusters, nebula,and the moon. But not for overall sharp imaging. However a kid may not be too crtical. It's a nice size for them and they will have a lot of fun playing with it in the daytime, looking at things in the back yard.
