Nice beginner refractor for casual use.
Reviewed in the United States on July 12, 2017
I recently bought the Meade StarNavigator NG 102 for both casual terrestrial and celestial viewing. And for the upcoming August 21 solar eclipse (while using the Meade #525 Solar Filter). This is a nice starter scope. Easy to use and the motorized control makes aligning the optics a breeze, though the control cord is a little awkward and if pulled too hard can pull on the motor mechanism and change the view. Since I just bought the scope I'm not yet sure of all it's features. There is a special Red Dot Pre-Finder to help align the scope to it's target viewing. It gets you close, but is not spot on. Perhaps there is an adjustment procedure, but again, since I just bought it, I need to spend more time. Overall, I'm finding it to be a nice beginner refractor.
