Great Telescope Excellent Service

I gave this 5 stars because the review is more about OPT than Celestron's telescope. My experience purchasing from OPT was very good overall. I was disappointed, though, because even though it's written all over the Celestron box, the telescope-plus-mount was missing the "Accessory Tray" (I assume this is the fault of Celestron, not OPT). The telescope seems like a good beginner's scope -- which we are, so it's perfect. Judging from reviews of previous versions of the Celestron 114AZ, they have made the tripod and mount sturdier. As others have observed, it is not as portable as it could be, and it would have been nice if it came with a bag or case or an easy way to transport it to your favorite stargazing spot. As a basic model, it is not overly complicated, yet it is sufficiently sophisticated.
