Is the Celestron 130EQ a good Beginner Astronomy Telescope ?

I have always been interested in astronomy and the night sky but with a bit more time on my hands in lockdown I decided to get a bit more serious. That said I had no idea about telescopes and specifications, lenses, eyepieces etc so I looked around on the net and plenty of sites seemed to recommend Celestron as good beginner scopes. The 130eq seemed about the most powerful in the beginners price range that I was looking at and had good reviews for the quality of the optics and general build quality. It also seemed to be portable which many of the more powerful scopes aren't as the wight, length and bulk increases. As it can be used for daytime terrestrial viewing this is a plus point.

Celestron PowerTank Lithium Pro 18768 Review

Powering a telescope using a suitable battery source rather than mains power has the advantage that the telescope, without the restriction of a mains lead, becomes both portable and safer - due to the absence of at least one tripping hazard! Lead-acid batteries have the disadvantage of being excessively bulky and heavy and in my experience have a relatively short life.

Review of the Skywatcher Explorer 130P SynScan AZ GoTo Telescope

I couldn’t wait to get the new Skywatcher Explorer 130P GoTo Telescope out of the box and put it to the test this week – I even got to take it home with me for a night! Thankfully, for a change, the skies were clear. First things first, this is a magnificently simple little telescope to use, but has the optical power and performance that would easily satisfy advanced observers, making it ideal for newbies and veterans alike. I’d class myself as somewhere in between the two, so it’s in…very capable hands.
