Customer Review

on 30 January 2011
Celestron Astromaster 130EQ

Very surprised at the quality for the money. If you're into astronomy in a big way but can't afford an all-singing-all-dancing digital telescope, then this might appeal to you.
The eyepieces are of excellent quality and that really counts when viewing.
Let me break it down a bit.

Pluses:
* Terrific build quality
* Very precise control
* Solid tripod
* Quality eyepieces

Minuses:
* A bit weighty if you're lugging very far

Recommended attachments: (available at Amazon.)
* Moon filter (Celestron)
* Revelation Astro 5X Barlow lens OR Celestron `Omni' Series 2X Barlow
* Phillip's Planisphere
* Celestron Flash Light, Red Astro Lite
* Celestron Omni 4mm eyepiece OR SEITZ High Power 4mm Glass eyepiece

For astrophotography:
* Camera adapter 93626 (Celestron or Bar and Stroud)

Dimensions: (approx.)
* Main scope length = 24 inches
* Scope diameter = 6 inches
* Minimum floor-to-eyepiece = 42 inches (depending on scope pitch)
* Tripod spread = 42 inches
