Celestron POWERSEEKER 127 overview

  • 1Description

B&H assembled this Celestron PowerSeeker 127EQ 127mm f/8 Reflector Telescope with Accessory Kit to enhance your views of the moon and planets by combining a powerful telescope rig with an eyepiece and filter accessory kit. The telescope features a Newtonian reflector optical tube assembly (OTA), a manual German equatorial mount, and a sturdy tripod. The accessory kit comes with two eyepieces that complement the two that come with the telescope, a moon filter, two planetary filters, and a hard carrying case.

  • Celestron PowerSeeker 127EQ 127mm f/8 Reflector Telescope

    Ideal for near and deep-sky observation, Celestron's PowerSeeker 127EQ 127mm f/8 Reflector Telescope features a respectable focal length and a large, parabolic mirror that produce detailed images of the Moon, clear views of the planets, and the ability to resolve bright distant objects such as nebulae and galaxies. The scope is outfitted with a 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser and two eyepieces to get new users started, and a 3x Barlow lens that effectively triples the magnification of any eyepiece used with it to expand the usability.

    The included manual equatorial mount features slow-motion control cables with large knobs to make it easy to track objects even when wearing gloves, while also minimizing vibrations caused by handling the mount with your hands; and clearly visible indicators on the Right Ascension and Declination axes. An adjustable-height aluminum tripod rounds out the rig with a tray for accessories such as eyepieces, filters, and lights.

Celestron POWERSEEKER 127 reviews

PowerSeeker 127EQ 127mm f/8 Reflector Telescope with Accessory Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Barlow Lens I love the product, but the barlow lens doesnt really do to much in the way of holding your eye piece in place. The small screw clasp that screws into the barlow lens to hold ur eyepiece in place has the hole stripped so the only screw to hold things in place, isnt functional. I do suggest getting a different barlow lens after making the purchase so you can really use it to your advantage instead of having wobbly eyepieces in your barlow lens.
