    When we found out that my 85 year-old mother-in-law has taken an interest in the astronomy, we thought that a telescope would be a nice present. After some research we thought that the Celestron - PowerSeeker 70EQ Refractor Telescope would fit the bill. Powerful, yet compact and easy to use. With further research I found that Best Buy had the best deal. Well, it as a hit! She loves it and now most nights (even in the bitter cold) she can be found in her back yard, check out the stars or following the path of the Space Station. This turned out to be a wonderful gift, and I recommend it to anyone interested in the night sky.

    If I were a better at astronomy, I could give a more accurate opinion of this beginner, out of the Box telescope. Unfortunately, we are rookies at stargazing. We hoped we would be able to see more. We hoped it would be easier. The instructions are unclear on how to assemble as well as how to use it. Unimpressed.

    Directions to put this thing together stunk but after some more looking at the box and some more research online was able to put together. The issue with the item and the reason I returned it was because it came with a defective part and overall was not pleased with the quality of the image.

    Very easy to use, the clarity is phenomenal. We have used it from day one. This telescope is manageable and makes observing terrestrial objects fun and a piece of cake. You will not be disappointed buying this telescope.

    I love the telescope. Being a true beginner, It has many more bells & whistles than I know what to do with at this point, but hopefully I will learn as I progress. It definitely does everything I currently need.

    This is a great little telescope. It is a bit bulky to bring up from where I store it, but it is a great telescope for the price I paid.

    A great first scope for a young grand daughter with a lot of curiosity. Hopefully she will want something larger.
