Comments about Celestron Celestron 102mm Wide View Spotting Scope Kit with Two Eyepieces.:

I was nervous about the optical quality and undoubtedly expected chromatic aberration. What a pleasant surprise! Despite its short f/ratio and simple doublet objective lens, this scope turned out to be an excellent performer even when pushed to relatively high magnifications. I mounted the scope piggy-back on my C9-1/4, a true complement. Overall, I’m very impressed with the value that the scope represents. While clearly this is not a telescope for purists who demand optical and mechanical perfection, but for its reasonable price, many observers would be very happy to have one.

Comments about Celestron Celestron 102mm Wide View Spotting Scope Kit with Two Eyepieces.:

It's light for a 4 inch refractor and delivers decent views of open clusters and nebulae even under only moderately dark sky.
