Discover our Solar System with the Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ! You’ll be ready to observe in minutes thanks to the quick and easy no-tool setup. The 70AZ provides bright, clear images of the Moon, planets, star clusters, and more for great nighttime viewing.
Includes everything you need to get started with astronomy: two 1.25” eyepieces (20mm and 10mm), finderscope, erect image diagonal, and free Starry Night astronomy software.
This telescope comes in at a size of 15x5.1x3.9 inches and an approximate weight of 18 pounds. It has dovetail attachment and 25-inch, stainless-steel tube legs. Although this product requires setting up, you won't have to worry since you do not need to use any tools.
Compared to an EQ mount, the Alt-Azimuth mount requires a steady hand for you to have a precise targeting on the object that you’re trying to look at. It features a large pan and a clutch for you to line up the different planets, stars, and moons easily. Although it would take some practice for you to perfect your handling skills, it’s still easier to handle and even cheaper compared to the other mounts.
Grab and go! This compact, lightweight telescope is your perfect companion for star parties, camping trips, and impromptu backyard observing sessions.
