Here’s an inexpensive Telescope, the Celestron Powerseeker 80EQ. I review this telescope and show you features of the telescope. This Telescope is actually the same scope as an Old Orion 80mm F/11.7 telescope I use for Auto Guiding. This Telescope with its HIGH Magnification makes a good Auto Guider Scope if you decide to upgrade later on. Out of the box, this scope OK, a 2 star rating. Some areas I wish were upgraded and other items I wish they would have simply not included them. This Telescope is best used during the day because of its very high magnification; you could possibly use it at night as a planetary imaging scope. The night views are too wobbly combined with the HIGH magnification. I was able to see M45 (Pleiades) and M42 (Orion Nebula). This telescope comes with a 20mm and 4mm eyepieces…Also included is a 3X barlow. However, the only eyepiece you can use is the 20mm eyepiece…You’re actually better off using a 30mm or 40mm eyepiece. The eye relief on the included eyepieces is very small, and if you have glasses, you may not be able to get your eye close enough without hitting your glass lens.
