Editorial Review

The Celestron Firstscope 114 EQ is a Newtonian reflector telescope packaged with two eyepieces and a sturdy equatorial mount. Invented by Sir Isaac Newton, reflector telescopes provide more light gathering power per dollar than any other telescope design. The Firstscope 114 EQ, with 114mm (4.5 inches) of aperture, provides images that are twice as bright as 80mm telescopes, and more than three times brighter than 60mm beginner scopes. Read more

Features

  • Manual slow-motion controls
  • Newtonian reflector optics
  • 900mm focal length
  • Comes with adjustable aluminum tripod
  • 227.5x maximum magnification

5-0 out of 5 stars Off to a great start!
I recently purchased this scope from amazon.I read many reviews and suggestions and decided to go with the Firstscope 114 because it seemed to be the most scope I could get for the least price.I considered some cheaper models with the same features, but I'm glad I chose this one because the differences in quality would have ruined my experience.It took about 2 weeks to receive my scope from Amazon, but you can't beat free shipping!The scope was well packaged, the only casualty during shipping was a wingnut on the tripod with a broken wing.I contacted Celestron, and they immediately sent me another wingnut.Great customer service!
4-0 out of 5 stars Terrific telescope for a really pleasant price
I've had this scope for about 4 months now and I have been very pleased with it.Firstly, I received it in only three days from Amazon.Secondly, I was genuinely pleased that all components are made of an alloy or other metal, unlike a particular Meade unit, which I used that had lots of plastic screws and other parts.Even the tightening screws for the lens mounts and red-dot sight are metal on this Celestron.The aluminum tripod is quite sturdy and adjustable; good for the little guys and girls that star-gaze too.The housing tube is black aluminum and sturdy as well.The red-dot sighter works well, especially when looking at stars/planets with a high-power lens, with less eye relief.The magnification and clarity of the views are really good.I've seen the rings of Saturn and Jupiter quite clearly with this scope.I also purchased the Celestron eyepiece kit that offers additional plossy lens (varying power) and a pretty good set of filters (including a moon filter).The only down side I can think of would be that the lubricant used by the company for the rotating axis' is quite sticky if you get it on ya.For the money, you're not going to regret the buy and you'll probably be glad you went with this quality model over lesser ones, that might even cost more.Celestron has a good product with this one.Hope this helps some.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is my first telescope - so far, so good
Okay, I am new to the world of stargazing.I purchased this telescope based on recommendations here at Amazon.com.I have been completely satisfied.I am especially impressed with the clear, crisp viewing of the moon.I can see a few planets, but they are of course very small through the eyepiece.

1-0 out of 5 stars Too Small, Poor Mount, Useless for Astronomy
This scope is not a good starter scope for anyone interested in astronomy.Here's why:
5-0 out of 5 stars A Lot of Scope For The Bucks!
The first thing everyone comments on in seeing this scope and then learning what I paid for it is: "Wow- that's a lot of scope for the bucks!". Indeed, it's got all the attachments for a well rounded amateur's scope not only for star gazing, but also for terrestrial viewing.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great starter telescope
I am pleasantly surprised by the telescope I got for the price. It was intended for casual observing and I am getting a lot of enjoyment out of it. It has all the accessories needed for viewing. High powered eyepiece, low powered eyepiece, adjustable tripod (stable for this size) and fine adjustment control for easy panning. I have shopped telescopes before and noticed that the tripods and eyepieces aren't too good in quality. But this one is different. I love the way it is easy to use for land viewing and gives nice views of the moon and its craters, specially when I use the high powered eyepiece. Its pretty lightweight so I can take it outside easily. It assembles easily and in my opinion is a very easy to use telescope. Overall, a nice telescope at a great price. ... Read more

Well , let's start with the free shipping , this item arrived to my house in 3 days after i have placed my order , that was fast..
5-0 out of 5 stars Good Quality - Great Deal!
I am very pleased with the quality of this set. Everything is multi-coated and is well made. The case is heavy duty and has room for other eyepieces. The 2X barlow lens doubles the eyepieces turning the 32mm into a 16mm and the 12.5mm into a 6.25mm eyepiece. You'll get plenty of use from the red LED flashlight as it will save your night vision when looking over your star chart.This is a great starter set for a needed upgrade from .965 eyepieces. The amazon price beats other online retailers by a mile.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good set, even BETTER price.
Amazon is selling this at nearly 50% off! The eyepieces are great for a beginner and the great case has room for more when you add them. The filters are really cool. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Starter Scope
This scope is not a good starter scope for anyone interested in astronomy.Here's why:
2-0 out of 5 stars Not for serious stargazing
Celestron makes some of the world's greatest telescopes, but this is not one of them.It's fine for peeking into the neighbor's window across the street or looking at the a large, bright object in the sky like the moon.But for serious stargazing, one shouldn't expect much from this telescope or any telescope in this price range.No telescope in this price range is much good for looking at stars or other faint objects.A really good pair of binoculars for around the same price would probably give you more enjoyment and be more versatile.Just lie on the ground and look through both eyes at the moon or constellations, and then take them to the ballgame the next day.And try to get away from city lights.If you do get binoculars, make sure that the second number is at least 7 times the first number (e.g., get 7x50 binoculars, but not 7x35) and that they have fully multi-coated lenses.

3-0 out of 5 stars Its just so-so
I wouldn't recommend this.Its very blurry and can't even focus on the cows out in the field let alone all the way to Mars. ... Read more

The ETX-125EC permits a broad range of astronomical study. In deep space, the ETX-125EC's larger aperture enables the observation of galaxies and nebulae in much wider extension and permits the resolution of celestial objects as faint as magnitude 12.5. The entire Messier listing of 110 objects is now not only visible, but, in addition, every object takes on a readily discernible structure. The Autostar controller turns the ETX-125EC into an automatic celestial object-locating system.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice for a beginner
I've bought mine when I did not know anything about astronomy. It is an amazing toy for an intelligent person. I thought that my 10 year old son will play with it, but it is over his head, I am actually playing with it. It is a completely automatic scope, i.e. after alignment is complete, it will guide you through the sky, and show you anything which is in it's database and above the horizon. The scope comes with a hand-held device "Autostar" which is a computer with a built database and 2-line alphanumerical display. It is menu-driven, and very easy to understand and operate after reading a manual for 10 minutes.
1-0 out of 5 stars Meade EXT125EC /uhtc w/ autostar
A novice to astronomy i bought this unit with extra bells and whistles, thinking it would be a good intro to astronomy.I am completely disappointed and would never recommend it to anyone for any purpose other then a door stop.Unless you already have some knowledge of telescopes avoid it at all costs.Set up is difficult to impossible, and what eventually appears is not much better then what you can already see on a clear night.As far as i am concerned this purchase was awaste of money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Telescope!!!!! Beginner or Expert!!!!!
This is an awesome scope that is so much fun to use and makes it easy as can be to learn about astronomy.It comes with everything you need to see some of the most amazing outerspace objects, nebulas, other galaxies,and more.I can not say enough how easy and fun you will have with this scope.You can use it for terrestrial or space exploration.The only negative to the scope is do not expect to get many hours out of the AA batteries.Some things to do: first is buy an electronic focuser or a focus extender (flexible kind), I have the electronic focuser because it was just easy to use.Next, buy rechargeable batteries NiMH, or build you a 12volt power supply like I did with a lead-acid battery and small battery box.It will last you for several weeks of viewing and plenty of power.The price is not cheap, but remember you get what you pay for these days.I started with a lesser scope and had to upgrade a month later to this one.Just do it right the first time and get the ETX-125 now instead of wasting your time and money with other smaller scopes.Again, this is an awesome scope you will be proud you purchased and impress your friends! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A good value for the $$
I bought this scope as a b-day gift for my hubby who has never owned a telescope before. It was fairly simple to put together, and we found the directions to be very helpful and accurate.
1-0 out of 5 stars There are better scopes
My recent Christmas experience with the Celestron Powerseeker 114EQ, my first "real" telescope, was a great disappointment. The assembled telescope looked very impressive but functioned poorly. It came without a detailed instruction manual making it difficult to set up, balance, and aim even for a mechanically inclined novice. The plastic finderscope was very cheap, blurry, and hard to align with the main scope. The "equatorial" (EQ) mount knobs moved the scope with jerky motions at times and the scope itself seemed a bit vibration prone on its tripod. Stellar images were blurry and unimpressive (possibly due to mirror misalignment in shipping and/or manufacturing defect) thus other individual scopes may do better than mine in this category. Newtonian reflector type telescope mirrors go out of alignment ("collimation") fairly easily and this scope came without instructions for how to realign them. I returned the telescope within the 30 day refund period and am looking for a better quality and sturdier one like the highly praised Orion Skyquest series or possibly the smaller and more portable Edmund Scientific Astroscan.
5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent beginning scope.
I received this telescope for Christmas and I must say after waiting two nights to use it I am impressed.My first target was M42 Orion's Nebula and the K20 eyepiece gave me a mesmerizing view of this amazing stellar nursery.The mount does have some shakiness to it but, it's nothing that can't be overlooked.I have the updated scope so it came with a metal focuser which is a big plus.The 3x Barlow is okay with the 20 but is useless with the 4 as is the 4mm eyepiece itself.If you are thinking of getting a more expensive scope of this size I recommend getting this and buying a 25mm Plossl eyepiece and a 2x Barlow and possibly a 7.5mm eyepiece (planetary and moon viewing) for the extra money you would spend on a more expensive scope. ...

The Meade ETX90EC is a compact telescope with excellent optics, packaged with a sturdy tripod and the remarkable Autostar computer control. Even though I own several telescopes and belong to an Astronomy club, the first night I took out the ETX, it showed me objects I'd never seen before. The ETX90EC is the computerized version of an affordable Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope first introduced by Meade in 1996. Every reviewer since then has commented on the excellent optics. How excellent? When I presented a session on optical testing at my local Astronomy club, I brought my ETX90 so that everyone could see what a "textbook" star test actually looks like. Read more

Okay, I know nothing about telescopes. But my husband and I bought this last summer because he thought it'd be fun to star gaze. When we did, it was truly one of the most wonderful experience ever! It allows you to observe celestial objects in brilliant resolution. It wasn't complicated and simple to use. But you do have to read the manual.

The Meade ETX90EC lives up to its billing.It's a high-quality piece of gear that exudes craft and workmanship.The bundled package w/Autostar and Tripod gives you most of what you need.If you have any intent of doing terrestrial viewing, you should consider the 45 degree erecting prism.Also, the package does not come with any power adapters.If you plan to be out for a long evening of star gazing, you will probably want the adapter that lets you plug into a cigarette lighter.I wish Amazon had the UHTC version available, but no luck.Finally, I haven't been able to find the correct T-mount adapter for this scope on Amazon.I do want to use it for photography eventually.The main thing I would say is that this is not a toy, but it is ideal for beginners to intermediate enthusiasts.I've had more fun in just a couple sessions than I've ever had before.

4-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in Meade
This was my husband's big present for Christmas, something he has always wanted.While unwrapping and unpacking, he heard a rattle in the spotting scope.Upon investigation, he fished out a broken set screw and discovered that it had sheared off the outside of the spotting scope.Another screw was badly damaged.The eyepiece covers had all been left off when shipping.Also, all the settings were loose and had to be reset.Meade does not have an 800 number and you are put on hold interminably when you try to contact them.All in all, he likes the scope BUT was very disappointed in the quality of the manufacturer and lack of customer service.What a disappointment for Christams day! ...

Editorial Review

Explore the wonders of the universe from your backyard--or just check out the activity down the street--with the Meade Polaris 60EQ-A 60mm diameter refractor telescope. Ideal for budding astronomers and beginning stargazers, the telescope features an easy-to-use design that sets up in seconds, so you can start peering at stars, planets, and distant galaxies almost immediately. Meade's high-quality optical design starts with a 60mm diameter objective lens, coated for pinpoint sharpness, and two 1.25-inch eyepieces (one MH9mm and one MA25mm) to ensure a wide field of view. The focal length of 900 mm (with an f/15 ratio), meanwhile, isn't as powerful as many high-end telescopes, but still keeps celestial objects looking razor sharp. All of this on a fully adjustable aluminum tripod (with an accessory tray) that ensures a stable viewing platform with minimal vibration--the bane of telescopes everywhere. The scope's equatorial mount is particularly appealing, as its deluxe slow motion controls help users keep fast-moving objects centered in the field of view during extended observations. Other details include a 5x24mm viewfinder and a 2x Barlow lens with a 1.25-inch diagonal mirror.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Look elsewhere...
Bought this scope on a whim as astronomy and the study of the stars has always been of interest to me since I was a kid. Set up was relatively easy, but once I looked through it...oh the disappointment. I was able to set up the viewfinder, but mount failed to keep objects within the finders field of view. And once you get something in the scope, the vibration and poor mount make it impossible to even focus without causing the scope to go into an irritating bout of shaking. I tried it for 4-5 nights in a row, and returned it. I went out and bought a cheap 10X50 set of binoculars and they work as well, without headache of this scope.
