Wonderful Telescope

This is a great telescope, easy to put together and easy to use, because of it's erect image eyepiece it can be used for celestial and terrestrial uses

When I bought this scope I had expectations but it did not live up to them. The packaging from Celestron was amazing and the instructions were very good. But as soon as I put it on the tripod and aimed it at the moon I discovered problems. The most important was stability at high magnifications. Just a touch of the cables (they were too short) and the 114-EQ would vibrate a lot despite the fact that all the screws and knobs were tight. There was no problem at low magnifications. Next, a better quality focuser would have also helped in focusing that was not as good as expected. Then there was the starfinder; it's not too bright as many claim but it takes too long to adjust it properly. Last, the included eyepieces were of poor quality. And to top it all my Zhumell eyepiece kit did not work with this scope. Everything was reversed due to the design of the 114-EQ. The Zhumell eyepieces work fine with other scopes though. The materials used to construct the 114-EQ were very good but the end result was not. It did not feel cheap at all but I would only buy it for a child to use. On the other hand if you just want to observe the moon it's perfect.
