5.0 out of 5 stars Arrived in time and great Telescope for begginer
Reviewed in Australia on 7 May 2020
Still trying to figure it all out, but the thing that I was super happy about is how fast I received the item. It arrived same time as my other order which was a telescope cellphone adapter which made it extra amazing. 1 day ahead before the super moon so I was able to play around it before the main event.

Easy to set up. Still learning the small stuff but over all great value for money.

The EQ mount is so good specially for a beginner like me. No need to readjust the whole scope and you can make small adjustments without re calibrating everything.. No B.s.

Very happy with my purchase

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy a 11/16 ratchet + better eyepiece, and you're done.
Reviewed in Canada on 30 July 2019
I bought that inexpensive telescope to start looking at stars and planets.
I quickly discovered that I need more quality eyepieces to help my experience.

The 20mm eyepiece is still the one I use first to find my objects, before zooming to a smaller one.
But, the provided 4mm eyepiece is almost unusable, too small, too much blurry zoom, and very hard to align your eye on it.
The 3x barlow can be used with the 20mm to increase its power.

To have a better experience, you should buy another eyepiece.
I suggest the 3-pack svbony 4mm / 10mm / 23mm 62 degree eyepieces
https://www.amazon.ca/SVBONY-4331908630-TELESCOPE/dp/B01LZ6DDC2/

Or the variable 8-24mm
https://www.amazon.ca/Celestron-93230-24mm-1-25-Eyepiece/dp/B0007UQNV8

Then, the tripod...
After only a few hours of use, it started to be very hard to use slow motion controls, these are too hard to turn.
Finally, I found the solution: You need to always bring with you a 11/16 ratchet, and
tighten the nut almost every time you use it, and it should need to be tighten a lot of times on the same night.

So, I still suggest the PowerSeeker 127eq, but with the 8-24 eyepiece, and don't forget your ratchet!

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT beginner friendly (unless you want a project)
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 July 2020
Initially very pleased, great price for what you get, and it was boxed nicely. Very excited. First test it wasn't focussing very well, so a quick google search.........Uh oh, what have I done. DO NOT RELY ON THE AMAZON REVIEWS ONLY. Check out some forums of experts with years of experience. I wouldn't say its not for beginners (I am a beginner), but its definitely NOT beginner friendly, this takes a lot of work.

There are a lot of things I have had to do to get this working correctly, so if you don't want a project (which I have actually enjoyed in lockdown) avoid this telescope. If you don't want to take out the primary mirror to add a centre spot, don't buy this telescope. If you don't want to have to take the entire focuser out to collimate with a laser collimator (bought separately), don't buy this telescope. If you are tracking objects (to photograph usually) you will need to buy a separate Motor to add for that. If you are prepared for a project you will learn a lot, but if you want an out of the box telescope this is not for you. Look at forums for alternatives.
