Celestron AstroMaster 70EQ Telescope

The Celestron AstroMaster 70EQ Telescope is a superb choice for any beginner in stargazing and one that is likely to get most users addicted to exploring the night sky as well as looking at the terrestrial landscapes.

This EQ version features the Equatorial mount with setting circles that enables you accurately to locate and especially then to track celestial objects on their path across the sky.

You will be able to view the Moon in breath-taking detail and locate not only planets such as Saturn and Jupiter but also see their rings and four larger moons, respectively.

As the images you see through your eyepiece are the right way up, this telescope is also very suitable for land-based viewing of landscapes and distant objects such as mountains or grand country mansions.

Although there are quite a few parts to the Celestron AstroMaster 70EQ Telescope, it needs no tools other than the supplied screwdriver and lateral adjuster. The process quickly becomes a straightforward process and the results make learning the routine very worthwhile.

The telescope is supplied complete with the SkyX CDrom for use with a computer to show you how to find thousands of celestial objects and to identify objects whose names you do not know.
