I had the use of one of these telescopes for a week whilst on annual leave last December. I had previously owned a couple of GOTO rigs including the Skywatcher Synscan GOTO and my current IOptron MiniTower so was interested in how this low cost Celestron model would compare.

First off, this is the lowest end 60mm model in the LCM range. Apreture is king with telescopes and a 60mm aperture is only going to show you so much detail both in terms of planetary detail or in it's ability to view deep space objects. Having said that, this is a very well made 60mm scope which has good quality glass and comes with a couple of decent achromat eyepieces (a 25mm widefield and a 9mm high power). These aren't on par with more expensive plossl eyepieces but they are much better than the Huygens types that often come with cheaper telescopes. The views are nice and sharp with chromatic aberation reasonably well controlled. The 9mm gives approximately 80x magnification which is nearing the limit of this scope's comfort zone. The eyepieces are the standard 1.25" size which means that adding additional optical accessories is easy to do. The telescope tube has a focal ratio of f12 which means that it is better on the moon and planets. I was easily able to make out Jupiter's 4 largest moons and even a little surface detail. Very nice views of the lunar surface were also easy to spot plus some of the brighter deep space astronomical objects like the Andromeda Galaxy.

The real item of interest is the GOTO mount however. This has a lot of nice design features and has a couple of improvements over the Skywatcher and the older Celestron Mounts. The mount has a standard dovetail bar clamp and so could be used with a number of different telescope tubes.

Sooo far, :)

Telescope was very easy to put together, box protected device well. Put together in a little under half an hour.

My Biggest Bug

Slightly annoying it requires 8 AA batteries, "there is no power supply with". The manual is suppose to cover multiple versions of this telescope and yet mentions one power supply rating required. Having looks on the website for Celestron, the manual says 240v AC to 12v DC 7500mA, where as the site says either 5000mA or 2500mA little confusing for any novice. Too much current equals bad news.
There's also options for a cigarette lighter power supply, along with a £70 power battery. Lord knows how long these 8 AA batteries are going to last, you maybe wondering why I concentrate on this and why this would be an issue, well because I got this for its GOTO facility, but if on the move with no power, was hoping could switch to manual control of stand/telescope, with this unfortunately not, it always requires power regardless of location even to use normally. So would have to buy a power supply in order to use without risk of no batteries, £20 approx for one I hope won't fry my telescope.

Next Bug

No computer link up cable either, although there are cd's with, once you manage to buy the cables, you might then be able to utilise and see how useful the GOTO side of thinks could be. A further £20 off ebay if I decide to keep the telescope.

It has 2 lens as already stated, used only the 25mm one.

The alignment process from what I've seen soo far has 3 options, 3 Star Align, 2 Star Align, 1 Star Align.
It states in the manual align red dots up with any star, not very clear on where your suppose to position your head whilest doing this, once this done u then align telescope.

Very pleased with equipment, not finding red dot spotting scope easy to use and finding alignment process difficult. However first observations of the Moon and Jupiter (including 4 of its moons) were a "wow"! Looking forward to using the computerized alignment and more exploration. Great buy for the price. The packaging however was a bit loose.

Simply does not work.
I unboxed this, put it together and could see the moon! Huzzah!..then the problems started. For a start the motor wouldn't stop. It simply wouldn't stop turning left or right, or moving up down. Then the alignment computer wouldn't work. Then the motor packed up again! Then the computer completely packed up and stopped working. After less than TWO HOURS. It is criminal that this company sells this product when it is quite clearly defective. It is completely and utterly worthless. Money not well spent.
Other cons, there is only one city in the whole of yorkshire listed in the computer. It does not enter dates properly, nor latitude or longitude, do not waste your time or money on this worthless product

DELIVERY:
I bought this telescope on the 24 Nov 2013 and it arrived on the 2nd of December after the courier 'loosing' a 5ft telescope
It arrived in quite a large box, the box its self was a little too big for the product its self with very little protection for the item
Some of the Sellotape was not properly stuck onto the box one was even completely off but putting that all behind me, The product itself arrived in one piece
PRODUCT ITSELF:
So assembling the product was pretty easy (For a novice like me)
and was setup and ready to go in about 20 mins it is all working fine, I've managed to see the cloud lines on Jupiter and its moons
The moon and its craters and you can even see the surface detail on Mars.
It weighs about 2-3 Kilos Ish very lightweight for a telescope.
You do not need to align the telescope for you to maneuver it around, use the arrows to do so, alignment is so the telescope can
take you to planets/galaxys with a press of a button therefore not essential (For alignment you need to have at least 3 noticeably bight stars to point the telescope at)

SUMMARY:
Very nice telescope for the price Courier wasn't the best but got here eventually
(Would recommend getting a Barlow lens as this will increase the power of the telescope and the eyepieces that come with it
don't zoom a great deal)

Feel free to ask about the telescope before Spending £170 on it :)
