    **** Review

    Better than a beginner telescope. Finder Scope is okay but the mount for it will not stay aligned. I purchased a red dot finder. EQ tripod is easy to set up. Supplied weights are barely enough for basic optics. Over all I like my PowerSeeker.

    great investment for the price

    I am totally grateful i bought my 127EQ and from OPT............Delivery was quick, setup and adjust a breeze and the results were way beyond what i expected for the price i paid.............I would highly recommend OPT if you are thinking about purchasing this scope (best price on the market) and excellent customer and technical service if needed.............CLEAR SKIES................Raymond Lowery

    We have had limited use, due to weeks of cloudy conditions. But the times we have had it out, it have been easy to sight in and the clarity has been excellent.

    Good scope for the $

    First off it is a bird Jones scope. Which means there is a lens in the focuser tube. I took the primary mirror out and center marked mirror and installed it back. Then I removed the focuser tube just the tube not the assembly. Then I used the included tool to remove the lens from focuser tube. Making sure which way it came out. After that I installed the focuser tube without the lens back into the assembly. Now I used a laser collimator but 1 could use a collimating cap. I lined up the mirrors. Replaced the lens back into focuser tube. The scope works great! If all that sounds too involved then this 127mm eq might not be right for you. But for the price and capability of this scope you will not find a better bargain! I won't say much about the accessories they work and can be upgraded in time. Clear skies!
