    I got the Celestron Powerseeker 127EQ (I understand it wouldn't be the favorite around here) but with the discount, I decided to go for it.

    I've always been interested in astronomy, but haven't really used a telescope much at all, so it will be a learning experience, which is half of the fun.
    Greeting Lynn, and Welcome!

    I recently had the misfortune to witness a new user have a bad experience on that OTHER astronomy forum over his selection for a first telescope. I will tell you the same thing I told them over there: there are NO bad telescope purchases if it what helps you get into the hobby. Your Powerseeker is a capable instrument that will show you alot of cool stuff, it just requires a little extra patience is all. Don't worry, you've come to the right place.
