The Celestron AstroMaster range of telescopes are a popular next step for those who are developing their interest in the cosmos and so investing money into the larger, higher powered scopes. I consider myself a competent novice having had a scope in the past, I decided I needed a better scope to take me through to the next level and so ordered a Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ-MD from PicStop.co.uk . Then it was just a matter of eagerly awaited delivery.

I was looking for one under £500, was compact, so I could easily transport it, as light as possible, facility to attach a camera, had a good specification and of course it provided the facility for the computer to seek out the planets and alike. I did my research and eventually decided the Celestron Nexstar 4SE was the one, and it has proved after 12 months of use to be a very good decision.

You will need patience, but if you have that and time, it’s a lot of telescope for not a lot of money. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the telescope body is actually metal, not plastic. Though still lightweight, it does feel fairly robust.

I found that the Vanguard Endeavor HD 82A Spotting Scope came out with superb reviews on many websites and only had one real competitor in the mid-range categories, which was a brand that I had not heard of. So, I opted for the Vanguard scope and have not been disappointed with it at all.

I'm writing this review on my new Celestron 127mm Maksutov Cassegrain Nexstar SLT. This telescope is my second purchase for astronomy, more so planetary observation. Overall I'm very impressed with this Celestron Nexstar telescope

It all started when my partner bought me a Celestron Astromaster 114EQ telescope .. a reasonably affordable scope. It's a great starter telescope and I soon had it set up and started looking through the eyepieces. We were lucky to have some clear skies, and it was around the mid-summer that I caught my first ever real-time glimpse of Saturn

This Celestron Astromaster 130EQ Telescope in my personal experience has been a revelation. After watching many videos and reading a few books I thought I’d give a decent beginner scope a try and this one kept popping up as the ideal choice. Let me start by saying it exceeded all my expectations

As a newbie to Astronomy I had been looking for a good entry telescope .. Throughout the web there are numerous links to help pick a suitable piece of equipment but as with most things cost can be an issue, too cheap, and I may not get the best sightings, too expensive I may not be able to see the value

This was my first time I have bought a telescope... I picked the Celestron StarSense Explorer DX 102AZ Refractor Telescope .. My main goal was to explore the moon and generally learn more about the night sky locally. The telescope was really easy to set up and within about 30 mins I was ready to go

I bought the astromaster 130eq Telescope as a beginner astronomer with interest in astrophotography, I have zero knowledge about both subjects, so I've been studying myself with any available info online. So finally I was brave enough to make the first step of buying equipment.

My son has always been fascinated by the universe .. for his 11th birthday, we asked him what he wanted and a Telescope was the answer. I went on a hunt for the perfect solution, allowing decent planet observation and introduction maybe of more deep space "stuff"

So I decided to buy a Celestron NexStar 8SE Telescope. It came in double quick time. As soon as I got it, I knew I would not be disappointed. The tripod it sits on is very sturdy, this has been a weak point in my previous smaller astronomy telescope, so good to see. It's dead easy to assemble, although best to do a trial run in daylight first.
