    I put this pointer on a Celestron Orange Tube C8. Since the finder scope on the C8 was not comfortable to use I wanted something that was easy and I didn't have to stand on my head to spot objects. This laser pointer does the job. It is well constructed and easy to line up with the telescope. Once it is lined up I point the laser beam to the object and it is in the center of my eyepiece. A fantastic upgrade to my 30 year old telescope!

    I have sent it back. Worked when warm but outside there was no visible beam, and it does not work at all when cold. I had a heater on it and it still failed to work. The idea is good, the mount is good, but the laser is weak.

      Comments about Celestron Laser Pointer with Telescope Mount:

      Well built product. I was disappointed with this pointer's performance in cold weather when I got it. Using a dew heater and putting in my pocket to keep it warm did not help much. Now I just leave it on and it works great. I cover the laser beam with an end cap or a piece of duct tape when I don't want it lasing into the sky. I use rechargeable batteries that easily lasts through a viewing session.

            I must be doing something wrong with this device, although I'm not sure how I could be messing it up. There is only a single point of light where the laser is shining.

                Expected to see a nice solid beam to what the telescope was pointing toward, all I got was a green dot on terrestrial targets.

                  This was a great buy, very reasonable and works as well as I thought it would.
                  Very easy to install and calibrate to my Celestron 8 telescope, no more cranking my neck, trying to look through the finderscope. just click the switch, and put the green beam on what I want to look at. I even caught upto a fast moving satelite my first time out..

                    Comments about Celestron Laser Pointer with Telescope Mount:

                    This thing really sends out a powerful beam. Once you have it set up, it saves a lot of slewing around to find the object you are looking for.
                    It looses power when it gets cold, so keep it warm until you are ready to use it (if that is possible).

                      This is a rugged all metal Laser pointer , the kit includes 2 metal base , it is easy to align using the 2 set screws . The only flaw I can see is that the laser is cold sensitive , all laser are like that though , when outside temperature start going below 45 deg the laser beam gradually fades down to nothing , and the unit needs to be warmed up in order to function properly . As I said this flaw is inherent to all laser and not this particular unit . Keep it warm in your shirt pocket and install it only when needed and you will be fine . I am planning to use an eyepiece dew zapper and see how this works out on it .
