Celestron AstroMaster LT 70AZ Telescope 21074 is an affordable but powerful telescope well-suited to examining the rings of Saturn, the gas clouds of Jupiter, and the glow of distant stars. Equipped with two different eyepieces - one 20mm and one 10mm - plus a 700mm focal length, these refractor telescopes can achieve a maximum useful magnification of 165x, more than enough for close inspection of our solar system. Designed for astronomy beginners, these Celestron telescopes install easily to their pre-assembled steel tripod, and they can be disassembled for storage or transportation quickly with the quick release dovetail attachment. You'll have total control over your Celestron Astro-Master LT 70mm Refractor Telescope, thanks to the telescope's pan handle operated manual Alt-Azimuth control, which moves smoothly and accurately for a precise view of the night sky. Celestron has packaged the AstroMaster with a virtual encyclopedia of the night sky: the SkyX astronomy software, which has a database of over 10,000 objects with informative images and coordinates. These AstroMaster telescopes feature a built-in StarPointer finderscope that has a much wider field of view than the telescope itself, helping you navigate the night sky. A deluxe accessory tray included with the telescope will keep all your necessary telescope accessories close at hand for easy access. The Celestron AstroMaster is relatively compact and lightweight, making it easier to carry from site to site.
