Comments about iOptron SmartStar A N114 GoTo GPS Reflector Telescope - EQ Wedge Mount:

Over all this is a good product. One thing, it comes with an AC adapter but it doesn't list it as coming with one and Hayneedle has that listed as an accessory. It was a pleasent surprise, but I had to scramble to cancel my order for one.

The Tripod is cheap, but it works and is fairly stable. You get a lot of bounce though from the gap between the tripod and the motor from the dual purpose Alt-Az and EQ mount. Some rubber padding while in Alt-Az mode fixes this.

The eye pieces were surprizingly decent quality. I've only looked at the Moon and Jupiter through them, but the views were clear. The focus is touchy, so use a soft hand when trying to focus or you will overshoot.

The GoTo feature is very nice and fairly accurate. It took Jupiter as the alignment "star" and slewed to both the Orion Nebula and the Andromida Galaxy with very little adjusting (IE they were in view of the 25mm eyepiece, but off center).

The Manual or should I say lack of a manual was disappointing. It comes with a quickstart guide only but you can download the manual from their website in PDF format. The manual itself is ok, I own several telescopes and I've yet to see a good telescope manual, but it should be included with the telescope or at the very minimum the quickquide should tell you where to go to download it.

Bottom line, for the money this is a good starter GoTo telescope.

Comments about iOptron SmartStar A N114 GoTo GPS Reflector Telescope - EQ Wedge Mount:

Software is not as user friendly as advertised, Get rid of some of the numbers and add names of what we're looking at. Manuel has no info for equatorial setup so goto is hard to figure out. Tripod not tall enough for an adult. For the price the unit works ok. It's a pretty scope but I am a little frustrated!!!
