    Comments about Celestron SkyProdigy 70 Refractor Telescope:

    I was interested in trying the Skyprodigy. It is what its advertised. I have several goto telescopes and one that uses a ccd camera for auto alignment by another manufacturer. Celestron has done a very good job. The setup was easy and the Skyprodigy aligned flawessly. As for the optics on this small telescope, they are very good also. Bright objects quite satisfactory. Saturn at 100x magnification quite a view.

      Comments about Celestron SkyProdigy 70 Refractor Telescope:

      Quick Set-up. Easy to Sue. Self orienting meaning you turn it on, and it finds its way through the sky. No complex alignment process. I also bought a Meade 102 Sky Navigator.
