Celestron’s PowerSeeker 127EQ is a perfect example of why websites like ours exist, and also of why Amazon reviewers are too incompetent to review anything more complicated than a grilled-cheese sandwich. It’s possibly the worst telescope I see even knowledgeable amateurs recommending frequently, because they simply see its specs and think it’s some great deal. But specs aren’t everything, and in actual use the PowerSeeker 127EQ is so horrible that I contemplated never buying anything from Celestron again after using one.Celestron mentions that this scope is capable of achieving up to 450 power, way too high for a 5” telescope (or really any under normal conditions). An advertisement like that should be an immediate red flag to anyone looking to purchase a decent telescope. If this hasn’t convinced you already to not buy a 127EQ, read on this review of Celestron Powerseeker 127EQ.
