Celestron 114mm Newtonian

on polar mount

Cost $5.53 at a pawn shop

This turned out to be a decent scope and is now one of my favorites for through the lens viewing. It's light, easy to set up, the mount has very little backlash and the views are as good any other reflector of this approx. size. However, the finder scope and finder mount are a joke! I replaced both and now have a Meade 8 x 50 mm finder mounted on this scope. I can now actually see most deep space objects in the finder scope instead of guessing where they should be!
