Celestron® Explorascope 60AZ Telescope

A classic refractor telescope with a fresh look and a redesigned mount for added stability. Altitude slow motion rod offers smoother, more precise control and pointing accuracy. Star Pointer finderscope helps you sight objects in the sky and center them in the telescope’s eyepiece with its illuminated red dot. Works for daytime terrestrial viewing and astronomical viewing. Comes with everything needed to get started with amateur astronomy: two 11/4 in. eyepieces, a 3X Barlow lens to triple the magnifying power of each eyepiece, an erect image diagonal for correct image orientation, and a full-height aluminum tripod. Also offers a download of Celestron’s® SkyPortal app for iOS and Android™ devices to help locate and learn about celestial objects.
