Orion Shorttube 114
Great starter scope. With good conditions and using plossels, have observed 2 moons of Saturn and Cassini division. Jupiter has shown 6 bands with transit and disc like moons. Can push scope to about 175x.
Big star clusters resolve using averted vision( barely). M 81 and 82 no problem. Even the mount is useful enough to find Jupiter and Saturn in broad daylight! Replaced finder and eyepieces. Great scope to learn collimating on. Took about 2 years to outgrow, now on the hunt for one of those ugly Russian scopes ( the ones with killer optics)..
