5 reviews for Best Telescope for a Beginner – National Geographic NT114CF 114mm Reflector Telescope – 80-30114

  1. Major S.

    As a beginner just getting started with star gazing, I could not be more happy with this scope. I have spent hours getting lost in the stars. Experimenting with different lenses also adds a whole new learning element. Not only do you explore the stars, you learn which lenses are best for different applications. There is endless amounts of fun and learning with this scope! I will highly recommend this scope to anyone looking to get lost in the starts.
