What can you see with a Celestron AstroMaster 114?
The Celestron AstroMaster 114 telescope is a great beginner telescope for an adult or older child. It’s 4.5” mirror will provide clear and bright images of the Moon, the planets, and dozens of deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy, the great star cluster in Hercules, and much more.
Are refractor or reflector telescopes better?
If you are interested in astrophotography, purchasing a refractor is a better option because of it’s specialized optic design that captures deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae. If you are interested in brighter celestial objects like the Moon or planets or a beginner, a reflector telescope is ideal.
Is the Celestron PowerSeeker 114eq a Newtonian telescope?
The Celestron Powerseeker 114EQ almost resembles a department store telescope in appearance and price, but the OTA is probably a good example of a classic 4.5” F/8 Newtonian – well constructed with very good optics.
Which is the smallest Newtonian telescope to buy?
The smallest Newtonian I recommend is a parabolic 130mm (Search “130P” or see Newtonian Reflector section below). The reason I recommend only the refractor and the Newtonian telescope types is that these are the two best suited to the beginner.
What are the features of a cometron 114az telescope?
Two high-quality Kellner eyepieces are included to enhance your views. The simple Newtonian reflector optical design, altazimuth mount, and included red-dot finderscope make it easy to navigate the night sky. A steel tripod provides stability. Cometron 114AZ is also a perfect instrument for viewing objects in our solar system and beyond.
Can a Newtonian telescope be equal to an 80mm refractor?
Technically, a 100mm Newtonian could be approximately equal to an 80mm refractor – But it would have to be parabolic – Many smaller telescopes (Up to 150mm) are NOT parabolic and this detracts from the qualtiy of the image, giving poor results.
