    "The scope is very nice and works well. This scope shows more detail then any of the others scopes I have owned. It is well priced and built well. A great scope to start out with or upgrade from an old scope. I highly recommend this scope to anyone that wants to enjoy astronomy and enjoy the outdoors."

    "I've heard that you can't go wrong with a Celestron telescope, even if you try. The PowerSeeker 127EQ might not have quite enough bang for a professional astronomer's buck, but for the price point, this cannot be beat for an amateur. It's a great solution, and while it isn't necessarily the best Celestron telescope overall, I feel that it's the best value for the money."

    "My niece was beginning to show an interest in amateur astronomy, so I started investigating telescopes that kids could use to pique her interest and hopefully set her on the path to a lifetime of discovery. After some research I decided this one would be great to get her started, and since gifting it to her on her birthday, she's played with it nonstop. I'm very proud as an uncle, but also as an astronomer myself."

    "I got this for a nephew who's a budding astronomer, his room covered in posters of the planets and any conversation with him usually turning to talk about space. This telescope however, left a lot to be desired given how much I paid for it. It is very, very difficult to align and without it being aligned it's of not much use. The wifi connection often drops as well. These are not issues that a telescope of this level should be having. Seems like a great idea on paper that was just executed very poorly."

    "This was my first telescope and I don't really have anything to compare it to. It was fun looking at the sky through this telescope and trying to find planets and objects. I also like that this telescope doesn't take up as much space as some telescopes."
