Summary


If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ Reflector Telescope is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky. The AstroMaster Series produces bright, clear images of the moon and planets.

Easy Astronomy

You won't believe how easy it is to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. When used for astronomical viewing, AstroMasters yield breathtaking views of the moon, Saturn with its ring structure, Jupiter and its belts and moons, nebulae, and star clusters.

Quality construction and design

The Celestron AstroMaster 114 EQ Reflector, in particular, is ideal for the novice skywatcher. It features all-glass optical elements, smooth operating steel tripod mountings with manual motion controls, and coated optics for enhanced image brightness and clarity. Quick-release, no-tool dovetail attachment makes setup a breeze, and a rugged pre-assembled tripod with 1.25-inch steel tube legs provides a rigid and stable platform.

Equipped with a permanently mounted StarPointer Finderscope lets you keep track of the stars, and a German Equatorial Mount with Setting Circles helps you accurately locate and track sky objects. A deluxe accessory tray provides convenient storage of accessories, and the included "The Sky" Level 1 planetarium software features a 10,000-object database and enhanced images.

This telescope combines the best in intricate technology and ease of use, and makes a great gift for any budding astronomer, young or old.

After going to a local observatory I became inquisitive and decided to buy myself a telescope,not wanting to spend a lot of money I surfed the net for a site from which to make my purchase,thats when I found Oz Scopes. Then it was a matter of which one,I compared prices and specs and decided on a Celestron 114mm EQ..
Once it was received I set about setting it up ,which I found to very easy,I have only been able to use it a couple of times due to too much cloud and light.But what I have been able to see amazes me.. I couldn't be happier with my purchase .

Great first telescope. I can see i will be wanting a bigger aperture in the near future. It was easy to setup and get looking at the moon the first night. The delivery was very fast as well. Absolutely would recommend to anyone interested in star gazing. (Posted on )

A Great First Scope - Review by
Overall Score
100
The instrument arrived in very good time and in excellent condition. Setting up was easy with the clear step-by-step instructions illustrated with good quality photographs.

First light was about 30 minutes later after I had roughly aligned the mount. We observed Sol by projection onto a clipboard. Three sunspots on the limb (not sure which!) greeted us. Terrestrial viewing was clear and crisp.

Suburban Geelong has positively stinking seeing but the moon was absolutely awesome! I won't relate other observations until I've tried it on our dark sky rural block.

The instrument arrived surprisingly quickly, in good condition and ruggedly packaged. Setting up was almost a no-brainer with the clear instructions and colour photographs. First light was a projected image of the sun, showing great detail on a hand-held target.

Seeing in suburban Geelong is horrible but Luna, Venus and Jupiter showed beautifully later that night.

When we observe from our rural property I'll post an update.
