    Not much knowledge about Astronomy. Celestron 130 guides me travel through out the galaxy. I would recommend this product to anyone. Only a bad thing,here, there are not many cases to put it in. Need to find out a specific size case.

    Comments about Celestron SkyProdigy 130 Reflector Telescope:

    I have been shopping around for a telescope for quite some time now and this one is the best! I wanted a really good scope so I could see surface details on the moon and other deep space objects. With no previous knowledge of astronomy or how a telescope works I was able to navigate the sky with the greatest of ease using this 130 model. I thought the automatic alignment feature was a gimmick, but after using it first hand it truly does what it says. I live in a very populated area and set this scope up on my balcony. There is a light in the back and I was afraid that the camera wouldn't be able to find the stars it needed to align because of it. It wasn't a problem at all. Not only does the SkyProdigy 130 figure out where it's looking in the sky in under 3 minutes but you can search for planets in the solar system, well known stars and even galaxies! You can see a few stars with the naked eye but with this telescope you unlock hundreds upon hundreds of stars that you can't normally see with lots of light pollution from the city lights. The star tour feature is cool because it shows you highlights of what is around the area your looking at and it can even identify objects you randomly find. I was blown away at how easy this scope was to set up and use. If you don't know anything about scopes or you just want a great way to learn about the stars your search ends here. Super satisfied!! Great job Celestron!

      I love mine! Was pretty easy to get together. My only complaint so far is the battery setup with the bag. Otherwise, great product!
