Hi guys this is my first telescope and after reading reviews i tried to take back without even trying well guess what i couldnt. to my supprise i completed installation in less time than removing from box (thats a fact). i had to figure out my location in the finderscope then it was easy to zero in on a star. the first day i saw a planet with a moon around it 8/11/09 this was the first thing i saw. my location on the finder was top right 1/4 above mid line. after i figure that out it was like butter. i too agree that the 8mm was not needed see the 20mm was perfect. i even figure out the magnifier when using this remember you must readjust the sight to see a star clearly remember you moved the 20mm lense away from its original position. sturdy product, nice looking in living room. bad parts is you only have 20 degree turn with the black fine tuning adjustment. but so what. this product is great. ok but the next 2 days i had clouds what a bummer. the first day 1 hour of sky but, this was enough to see the planet andits moon before our LARGE BIG BOY MOON APPEARS it was awesome. i even saw a deep black crater on the moon. site also say dont look at moon when full. i am now looking for a gps or auto adjust for this machine GOOD HUNTING GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I bought this at a local hobby store, along with a powerseeker refractor - for me and the wife to get started in this hobby.
I'm not too new to scopes. I've used them before.
The views in this scope are ok to good - for the price you pay.
However, what makes a scope a good scope is being somewhat steady. This thing is a weeble.
The counter weight by itself is far heavier than the entire scope, which means - it is LIGHT!
Light = wabble wabble.
My $25 camera tripod is 8x more sturdy than this thing. I mean, the tripod on this thing is just bad. REAL bad.
If it just had a descent tripod, it would stiffen this thing up 10x.
I could recommend this scope if it had just $10 more worth of tripod.
It doesn't, therefore I cannot recommend this.
Trying to do anything - slew, focus, the image shakes so violently, makes focusing VERY challenging.
I am a handyman tinker and have built many custom "things" in my lifetime (I'm 50+), so I think I am going to build this scope a tank stand, so I can actually use it.
Until then, we will just use the smaller, more stable 60AZ.

Comments about Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ Telescope:

Overall this telescope delivered. I was forced to buy a Celestron eyepiece kit because the eyepieces that came with the scope were sub-par. Once you get an object like Jupiter in view its fantastic, but be careful of bumping the telescope as the unsturdy tripod will shake for a few seconds. Focusing is difficult because of the wobble but a steady hand could compensate for that.

Comments about Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ Telescope:

I would recommend this to beginners, not children though....the tripod is unstable and weak as usual, why don't they come with wood tripods anymore?

Comments about Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ Telescope:

I purchased Celestron's 114EQ back when I was in undergrad, over 10 years ago, and I'm still pleased with the quality of this scope. Yes, the finderscope takes a few minutes to adjust properly, but once it's aligned, it's accurate and a great help at targeting objects in the night sky. I haven't found the tripod or base to be unstable, and after moving to three different houses, I've never had to re-collimate the mirrors. My only regret is now that I'm more in the city, I can't see as much with the light interference. I would recommend purchasing additional filters and eyepieces to get the most of out your scope. The images of the planets and deep-sky objects I've been able to observe have been clear and amazing, and I can't wait to share this experience with my children.

    Comments about Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ Telescope:

    I purchased this telescope as a companion to my Starseeker 4.5" reflector. It Fits the go to mount perfectly,and the views are excellent, crisp and clear. The Finderscope does aling up; I think most people who say it doesnt are just giving up w/o actually trying to do so, as it does take a few minutes to set up, but once centered, it's "DEAD" on Target. The Tripod is also very sturdy. I would recommend this scope for anyone wanting a good scope for deep sky object's.
