Let Down Returned. Arrived with scratches and finger marks on mirror 05 August 2014
Very good for the price Very good telescope. We were able to see the rings of Saturn. Amazing. Great service from John Lewis as usual 24 June 2014
Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ-MD Telescope Lovely machine - easy to use for my grandson. Very easy to assemble. 14 January 2014
faulty Purchased online delivered next day, so far so good, started to assemble only to find the latitude adjusting bolt would not fit. Was very disappointed but in true John Lewis style a replacement is being sent next day. Fingers crossed all is well, cant fault the service. 11 November 2013
Great! Telescope is brilliant! Was an xmas gift to my boyfriend and we finally got it out last night as we had been waiting on a clear night. Was absolutely brilliant! We saw Jupiter and it's moons. Great product, would recommend. 09 January 2013
Great once you understand it As a complete novice, astronomy is not the easiest subject to get into and setting this up took a little patience and background reading to understand the terminology as the manual, while attempting to be helpful, included a lot of jargon I didn't understand. There were also a few minor issues with it - one of the counter balance weights had something wedged inside which I managed to dislodge with a bit of brute force with a screwdrive to allow it to fit. I also can't quite setup the alignment scope - I've got it nearly there but the freedom of movement with the adjustment screws isn't enough. Minor irritaitions as you can work round them. It also comes with a motor but I've no real idea what or how I'm supposed to use it so I recommend getting a decent beginners guide at the same time as the material with the telescope doesn't help get you into the subject. But once you have it set up and you look at something like the moon on a clear night... the quality is great for a first Telescope. 28 November 2012
perfect 50th Birthday present Really pleased with purchase. Possibly took a bit longer to set up than he thought but my husband was really pleased to receive this for his birthday. Its early days but he has seen some great features of the moon already despite it being rather cloudy at the moment. Think he will have hours of fun and intrigued with his new toy! 02 October 2012
