      Comments about Celestron AstroMaster 114 EQ 4.4"/114mm Reflector Telescope Kit:

      This is a decent telescope. I moved up to this from my starter telescope - a Ø70mm (2.7") F.900 f/12 Refractor modelI get bright well defined detail except if using a barlow lens - not sure why - but I will figure that out. The focusing is smooth and with some trial and error the locating of objects is fairly easy. The built in star finder is useless and constatntly eats up batteries. I use it only for "ball parking" and object. I had another red dot star finder and mounted it securely between the celestron finder and the eyepiece. I CAREFULLY located my hole positions, drilled and threaded them then mounted the new finder with a small bead of epoxy for added security. Now, having made that modification, I am on my targets very quickly.I would advise sighting this telescope in the daytime hours on the most distant terrestrial object you can find and see how the supplied star finder lines up with it.I get great detail of the moon and distant objects like Saturn and Jupiter.When disassembled, it stores easily and goes back together very quickly.The software provided is not as user friendly as I had hoped, I use an alternate software that provides a red screen for use on a laptop out in the field. This prevents your eyes from constantly readjusting. It also does not disturb other astronomers at the same site.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend, but would advise of the needed modification.

      Comments about Celestron AstroMaster 114 EQ 4.4"/114mm Reflector Telescope Kit:

      This is a fine instrument for a beginning backyard astronomer. It is particularly well suited for inhabitants of light-polluted urban areas, because

      (1) It is compact enough to be transported easily to dark sites, by car or plane. While it does not come with a carrying case, it is easy to make one from a small duffel bag and some 2" thick cushion foam, and the tripod can be collapsed and clipped to the top of the bag;

      (2) Even in light-polluted areas it can show beautiful detail of bright objects, such as the Moon's craters and Mariae, the phases of Venus, and Jupiter, including striping and moons.

      At dark sites it can show the usual details of double stars, star clusters, and moderately deep-sky objects, that are within the capabilities of a 4.5" reflector (M57, Andromeda, etc.)

      The mount and tripod are sturdy, and with practice the whole telescope can be assembled in minutes.

      The User Guide is for the most part clearly written, if perhaps a little sparse on some details. The included software didn't seem that useful to me, but that may be personal preference -- I prefer an open-source product called "Skychart" for planning observations.

      The main problem with this telescope is that the supplied starfinder is junk. It's difficult to use and adjust in the daytime, and nearly impossible at night. It rises about 1" above the optical tube assembly, near the aperture. It has two concentric circles that can be seen in daylight, and used to sight down the length of the tube. For night-time use it has an LED spot, which can only be lined up by laying one's head on the tube right next to the starfinder. I haven't had much success with it in this mode.

      Not having a working starfinder is a serious problem, since the field-of-view with the low-power eyepiece is about 1 degree, so that even getting the FOV into the right area of the sky is a serious challenge, and requires lots of time and practice. I would recommend buying a third-party starfinder that can be attached to the side of the tube.
