Too many negatives,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron 21045 114mm Equatorial PowerSeeker Telescope (Electronics)
While the optics of this scope are good, there are quite a few bad things about this telescope. The tripod is shaky, unstable and cheaply produced. The finder scope is flimsy and almost unusable.
The users manual that comes with this scope is not written for beginners. Important topics such as balancing the telescope, polar alignment and collimation (aligning the mirrors) are glossed over and totally unsuitable for a beginner.
I would recommend spending the extra money to buy an Orion Spaceprobe 3 or SPaceprobe 130.
