    "it works fine...The charge lasts a long time....Would have given 5 stars, except for the "fidly" detachable light storage, the fact it did not come with a manual (had to download from Celestron), and you still have to order a separate power cord for the telescope....Has two lights - a bright white spot light and a smaller, detachable, red light."

The objective lens is a 72 mm two element achromat (color correct crown & flint) air spaced objective lens. The tube itself is aluminum, painted flat black internally, and fully baffled for excellent visual and CCD imaging. The objective is fully multi-coated and has a resolving power of 1.61 arc seconds. The optical tube assembly is diffraction limited at ?4 (1/4 wave in Sodium light). The diagonal consists of a 45° Schmidt prism that is fully coated in Magnesium Fluoride. The finderscope is Galileo's Mars' Eye electronic finderscope which helps by getting the observer behind the telescope without losing the surrounding field of view when targeting objects.
