Celestron C150-HD
I have used my C150-HD now for several months and for
money think that it is a great starting scope. I use
the standard 20mm plossl it came with very little. I
have found that my Meade 6.7 UWA works extremely well in
this scope. At 149x and the added wide field, the views
are stunning. One nite I coupled my Celestron Ultima
Barlow with it on Orion. Not only did I see the 4 main
stars in the trapezium but also the other minor 2. I
just purschase a 4mm Radian and am waiting for a dark,
clear nite to try it. Overall I am satisfied with this
telescope but am looking forward to possibly purchasing
the CR150-HD Refractor as I cannot afford the 6" Astro
Physics and even if I could, I don't think I could wait
thru the time period to get it. The CG-4 Mount is fine
and works okay with this scope. Some minor problems,
which are probably just me being critical, but for the
most part a fairly decent setup overall. I don't have
any friends who own this scope so all I can do is give
my opinion on how it works for me. If anyone out there
owns this telescope and would care to share ideas and
comments etc., please e-mail me at oquinn@aini.net
Regards, Terry
