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

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

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't spend the money
This is my second telescope.5-0 out of 5 stars A great starter scope!
When this scope first arrived I was very pleased. It looked great and I couldn't wait to try it. I immediatly began setting it up, which was a difficult task. The instructions gave a photo that had tiny arrows pointing to different parts of the scope. [I still can't figure out what angle their photo was taken from.] The directions started out easy to follow, but later on it seemed that their writer had taken them from a guide-book on flowers found in the Sahara. I'm 14 though, and even I managed to use common sense to put the scope together.[It doesn't hurt to have a couple of magazines handy, such as Sky and Telescope or Astronomy.]Read more

Skillfully observing the many visible stars and planets in the sky can be daunting for the beginner and trying for even the intermediate amateur astronomer, but the Meade DS-2070AT telescope makes the task easy with the Autostar computer controller system. You can locate any astronomical object by entering it into the keypad; electric motors then align the telescope to display the object. The Autostar's catalog includes 74 galaxies, 135 star clusters, 26 asteroids, and the 8 major planets, for a total of 1,586 objects that you can view.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars skeptical
Needed a birthday gift fast, so didn't read other reviews until after I ordered. Was unsure if I made a good choice, but ended up being very happy. Delivery was right on time, no problems with assembly and easy to use. I know it is not the most powerful or precise telescope on the market, but definetly a good product for the price.

1-0 out of 5 stars save your money
To be fair, I have never used a telescope before.I have, however, assembled many products using instruction manuals.I found this manual difficult to follow.It lists the assembly instructions in two different areas of the manual and each set of instructions were slightly different from each other.I had the same problem with the alignment instructions.The remote control is impossible to read while it scrolls.I couldn't tell you if the telescope is aligned properly, but we could not see anything with it.We managed to manually find a bright star through the viewfinder, but it looked much better to the naked eye than through the scope.We are very frustrated with this product and will probably return it.

1-0 out of 5 stars May be the Moon

Celestron's Firstscope 80 EQ refractor bears a strong resemblance to its larger cousin, the well regarded C102HD. When compared to 60mm beginner scopes, the larger optics and sturdier mount of the Firstscope 80 EQ translate into significantly better views of the moon, the planets, and deep space. Even computerized scopes in this price range can't match the Firstscope 80's fine views of the moon and planets. Read more

We just purchased this telescope, and I must say that I am very pleased with the telescope, being that I am a beginner. The power of the telescope is much better than the one my husband got me for Christmas (Meade). So far, we have seen Saturn and its rings, Jupiter, and some clusters. We are very satisfied with the quality of the images. Easy to use. Lots of fun. Great for a beginner. Comes with three eyepieces, barlow lens, Software for computer.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid all Tasco small refractors!
Tasco small refractors are the epitome of the "junk department store telescope". As any "How to Choose a telescope" book, website, etc., will tell you, the biggest clue that a scope is junk is that it's advertised on the basis of "power". For example, this 'scope is called "675 power" - but 60mm refractors are worthless at any power over ~120x! The image just gets extremely dim and muddy. If you're considering buying this 'scope, consider researching the issue a bit more! Binoculars , or a somewhat more expensive scope by Meade or Celestron would be a far wiser investment. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Celestron C102HD 102mm Refractor Celestron C4-R
Ordered The C102HD but believe this is the newer version Celestron C4-R. On just one night of viewing, conditions hazy, Still able to view one of my favorites, Saturn. Cassini division easily visible, nice image at 160X, used one of my own eyepieces 12.5mm plus 2x short focus barlow. A band stood out and well wrapped around the planet. Did not notice any Chromatic Abberation on Saturn. The optics on this 4 inch objective are impressive for such a value priced telescope ! The Mount works very well goes and stops were you want it, the tripod is aluminum, not the stroger tube variety, making the works abit shaky, but otherwise supports well. Another favorite Jupiter started to rise but conditions changed to heavy overcast before I could give a better rating, the two large bands were well separated and detail was starting to appear then clouds moved in. Jupiter did produce some color distortion but not that objectionable to me. Only star tests were Sirius (brightest star in the heavens) and the companion to Polaris (North Star). Sirius did show some of chromatic abberation but not all that bad, Polaris at 160X was satisfying with its blue companion well placed. Managed to view a few open clusters but again sky conditions not favorable, will update in future. UpDATE: Yet to reach a dark sky, intown viewing, the famed Orion Nebula, beautiful flower-like, couldn't resist 160X on the also popular Trapezium (4 tight stars inside the Orion Nebula), actually an overkill at this power, stars filled with black between them, Very Nice! Just above the three star belt of orion is a fainter M78 Nebula,is much smaller, noticeably brighter than the ETX90.
5-0 out of 5 stars WoW
I finally had a clear night although it was a bit on the windy side, and I was very impressed with the performance of my C102HD refractor. I have never really had a real Telescope I alway's Fell to the ads of those high powered store sold 60mm. refractors, those are junk. I saw more on that one night than I have all of my life, I saw the Orion Nebula for the first time,it was great at 50 power with the 20mm. eyepiece, also the moons of Jupiter were very sharp plus the rings of Saturn, I also bought the Celestron accessory kit so I have plenty of options when it comes to power. I just can't say enough to express my delight with my new scope and probably can't say it right. But this a real quality item,and amazon.com is a great place to purchase it, they have great service and the scope came very well packed. So I would really recommend one of these scopes you will really be pleased and amazed at it's performance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Every bit worth the wait!
I used to work on 10" and 12" refractors and in comparison this scopes only lacks in size. I started running around in circles after looking at the amazingly sharp views of Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon, and the Orion nebula the first night. Stars are sharp pinpoints. Plan to buy additional eyepieces as this 20mm Plossl (pretty decent per se) is just a starter. My 6mm eyepiece works beautifully at 150x. With the 2x Barlow lens, the 20mm gives you 100x. In a light polluted city (like where I live), the best I could get was around 200x.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars 470x magnification
Advertising that this telescope can operate at 470x magnification is misleading, to put it kindly. Common rules of thumb in astronomy would recommend this telescope good for up to about 120x (50x per inch of lens diameter) maximum on a night of stable sky conditions.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all Costs!
This scope is not a good starter scope for anyone interested in astronomy.Here's why:
