The Celestron PowerSeeker 114EQ is a 114mm aperture newtonian reflector telescope. It’s part of the Celestron PowerSeeker EQ range which includes the 127EQ, 60EQ, 70EQ and 80EQ. The telescopes from this range all have the equatorial mount as a common feature.
Any telescope with a 114mm aperture is a decent size to be able to produce impressive images of the night sky. Having said that it’s also worth noting that given it’s capabilities and also it’s price point this telescope is an entry level to intermediate telescope and with a few more accessories I could consider it a more than decent telescope even for the more advances astronomer.
The box comes with the following components: the optical tube, finder scope, equatorial mount, 2 eye pieces(20mm, 4mm), 3x barlow lens and the aluminium tripod.
After unpacking the box, the setup was relatively easy and took around 15 minutes, including setting up the mount.
While setting up the telescope every component delivers the overall feeling of high quality with the finderscope and barlow lens being the exceptions as these pieces are made of plastic.
The equatorial mount is a great mount for this telescope, it’s easy to use once it’s properly set up and the Celestron motor drive is available as an additional purchase. The motor drive helps a lot especially if you want to have a go with taking photos.
