The AstroMaster 80AZS from Celestron is a short refractor telescope perfect for terrestrial and celestial viewing. Its short focal length is ideal for viewing star clusters and nebulae, while the erect image star diagonal makes the optical tube ideal for using as a spotting scope during the day. Setting up the telescope is a breeze and will have you observing in actually just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customize the telescope’s height or place it on raised surfaces like a picnic table. An included accessory tray will help you keep track of eyepieces and other small items while observing.

The total telescope kit weighs only 10 pounds; perfect for impromptu observing sessions at home, or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you. You can navigate the sky with a pan handle Alt-Az control with an adjustable clutch for smooth and accurate pointing. Move the mount via the pan handle in an up/down, left/right fashion to track your object in the eyepiece.

The AstroMaster 80AZS comes with two eyepieces (20 mm and 10 mm), an erect image diagonal, and a finderscope. The two eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. The erect image diagonal allows for right-side-up viewing ideal for terrestrial subjects but can also be used for celestial objects. The red dot finderscope will help you quickly center an object in your eyepiece for easy observing.
