Better Than the Original
I bought this to replace the one that came with my Celestron NexStar 8se. The red dot on that one disappeared after a few years and a fresh battery did not help. The red dot on this one is brighter and easier to use. I'm very happy with it and just hope it lasts longer than the first one.

Celestron star pointer 51630
This is a must have! Very easy to use, I was shocked that I was able to find Saturn within 5 min. of use. Before I was using the star pointer that came with the Celestron 114EQ, and couldn't find anything. The only reson I scored this a 4.5 is I wish that it came with the screws needed.
