Which telescope to choose to see the stars, but also galaxies, constellations, gas clouds, star clusters? If the Sky-Watcher 70/700 can easily see the planets, they are quickly limited when it comes to aim for stars. It is then necessary rather to turn ourselves towards a telescope of the Newton type which has a big opening.
The Celestron PowerSeeker 127EQ telescope is a reflector with the highest magnification ratio of 300X. The focal length is 1000 mm, the aperture has a diameter of 127 mm. The optical tube measures 20 inches. It has a 3X Barlow lens. The mount is a German equatorial version. The coated glass allows a bright and clear image. The eyepieces are 20 mm and 4 mm.
The magnifications are 50X and 250X. This is really the Newtonian reflector telescope that is needed to observe deep space. The tripod allows fine adjustment and excellent stability for sharp images. A software is given with a database that lists no less than 10 000 celestial objects, as well as their images.
This telescope is intended for users who are looking for quality, a multitude of features, and power. It will provide hours of pleasure to the entire family. It is easy to install and manipulate, even for an uninitiated person. There is no need to have special tools to mount it.
It allows us to easily see Mars, Venus, Jupiter with its equatorial bands, Saturn and its rings. The Moon seems immense, we can observe its topography in details. It is quite possible to see galaxies, such as M81.
Its weight is 30 pounds when it is not mounted.
