Our expert comment:
The SkyWatcher 114/500mm EQ-1 has decent optics for its price class. But, for an instrument of this size, the mount is only suitable for visual observing. It is really worth investing a little more money if you want more performance. If you want something you will also be able to use for astrohotography in the future, we recommend the SkyWatcher 150/1200mm NEQ-3.
