Cometron 114AZ
Posted by Xuxymarz on Thursday, February 06, 2014 6:37 PM

Ayer ( Miércoles 5 Feb 2014 ) compré un Celestron Cometron 114AZ. El clima en mi ciudad no me ha permitido usarlo, alguien que tenga un Telescopio como este, podría comentarme su experiencia visual con el mismo. Qué cosas buenas o limitantes tiene?.

Gracias de antemano 

Saludos desde

   Hi. I never used a 114mm newtonian but I have a 127mm Schimdt-Cassegrain, not very different in diameter. The performance of a scope, large or small, depends more on sky darkness than on anything else. Thus to evaluate or compare your observing experience with others, you must also state your viewing conditions.

   You're in a city, but how large, how much light polluted, and how dry or humid is the weather, usually? The good thing about your scope is it's not too small, but those thin azimut mounts should be used with their legs completely retracted, for stability.

   This will keep the scope lower, so you can observe in comfort from a chair. Also, what kind of finder and eyepieces do you have? It's a basic scope but be sure there are simple ways to make it work better, especially by improving the blackening inside, and the tripod's weight.

Hola, Xuxymarz!

Yo tambien iba a comprar uno de esos telescopes (Celestron Cometron 114AZ), pero al ultima, escoji el Orion XT10 por un amigo que me lo recommendo.

En que parte de Mexico eres? Yo tengo mucho familia en Durango, Sinaloa y San Luis, Rio Colorado Mexico. Voy par San Luis, R.C. Sonora como un ves cada 2 semanas y estoy bien feliz para ensenar a todos mis sobrenitos la luna con mi telescope cuando lo llevo por alla!

Yo vivo en Reynosa, Tamaulipas, pues te cuento que todavía no lo estreno, los dias no se han prestado, pero pues desde mi balcón pienso explorar el cielo, aunque no estoy segura si tendré buena visión, me aventuraria subirme hasta el techo del segundo piso. Pero me encantaria ir un lugar despejado, lejos de la ciudad, porque como que no me seduce mucho ver el cielo desde la ciudad.

Saludos!
