What can I see with this telescope?
This amazing computerised telescope will help you see the universe in a different way. See the moons of Jupiter, the Pleiades star cluster or the rings of Saturn in breath-taking detail. This 114mm Newtonian reflector telescope comes with a tracking mount and two eyepieces, one with a 40 times magnitude and another with a 111 times magnitude.

Why choose a reflector telescope?

Reflector telescopes are open at one end and use mirrors to collect and focus light for the image. Typically, the apertures of reflector telescopes are larger than their refractors. This means they can see further and fainter objects and have a wider apparent field of view. The bodies of the reflector telescope can be made smaller, all while maintaining the same level of magnification. Reflector telescopes don’t suffer from chromatic aberration, colours appearing around an image, like some refractors. Reflector telescopes display the image upside down. This is normal for astronomical telescopes, but will be noticeable with terrestrial viewing.

How easy is it to assemble?
Easy to use and assemble, this telescope comes in three major sections which can be assembled and disassembled quickly and easily. There is a tray under the telescope to store your alternative eyepiece and other essentials. The mount has a built-in spirit level to help you level the telescope. There are nine different slew speeds, allowing you to rotate the telescope to observe different areas of the sky. The LCM can be powered by eight AA batteries (not included).

Can this telescope track?
Locate three bright objects in the night sky and the computerised telescope can orientate itself, calculating the time, date and location of the telescope. Use the hand control to browse through its database of 4,000 objects to locate and track your celestial object across the night sky. You can use the Sky Tour function and your LCM telescope will give you a list of the best objects to view so you don’t miss a thing. The 114 LCM comes with The Sky X – First Light Edition astronomy software with a 10,000 object database, printable sky maps and 75 enhanced images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited about exploring the universe Comfortable to use, sitting in the garden chair and looking down into the eye piece is a nice way to relax under the stars. It's as technical as you would want it to be, the quick set up cards are very useful, saves time reading the small print in the manual and makes it easy to understand and set up quickly. I don't think I will ever forget seeing the moon and its craters for the first time, however a filter is a must, as on a bright night the brightness of the moon through the telescope is unpleasant on the eye.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little Budget Telescope Was after a Bigger Telescope till i saw this. Its easy to put together and the Handset is so simple to set up. I found out you can Use a 12V wall adapter instead of buying Tons of Batteries, Lots of money saved with the Adapter. If you try to buy this anywhere else its in the Ballpark of £230 to £270 so its well worth the £199.

I am new with telescopes, have you got one with motorised tracking objects, with a adapter for electrics, and what the difference in the lens like 130/130/ 114/900 extra thank you. Bob

Asked by: biker
This telescope has computer guidance and if configured correctly will follow a selected object. Typically telescopes are used away from electrical sources, you can buy power tanks (large rechargeable batteries) to take with you to power your scope. On a reflecting telescope such as this the 2 numbers refer to aperture size and focal length. The larger the aperture the more light gathering power of the scope The higher the focal length and the smaller the lens the more magnification you can achieve. (this is actually much more complex than there is room to explain here, I'd advise online research into this) A quick example would be 10 mm lens on a 1000 mm focal length telescope would give 100x magnification. 10 mm lens on a 1200 mm focal length telescope would give 120x magnification. The smaller the lens the higher the magnification. This isn't really something that can be explained in a quick FAQ section, I'd advise doing some online research.

Hi. Can it take photographs.

Asked by: Lurcio
The Telescope has no ability to take photographs by itself, you would need to attach a DSLR type camera via a T adaptor, or a USB imaging device attached to a computer. Something like For more info on what equipment would be needed for Astrophotography I would recommend researching the subject online.

You can, it would depend on the type, make and model of camera you are using as to which mounts and adapters you would require.

What is the part no. / code that gives this scope 269 magnification?

Asked by: John
You would need a 11mm objective lens and a 3x barlow. But by adding the barlow you would be sacrificing light, affecting the quality of the image you can view.

I want to connect my computer Windows 10 to the telescope so that we can watch images on the 24 in computer screen. Can you suggest how? we have a BT hub 5

Asked by: mortozx98
First you will need a USB connection cable for your handset (available directly from Celestron) this will allow you to control the scope using the dedicated Nexiremote software You will then need a Neximage camera this is a special webcam that sits in the eyepiece of the telescope and transfers the images that your eye would normally see into your computer screen. Please remember that you will still need to manually adjust the focus of the telescope using the focus adjust knob.
