22102 Explorascope 80AZ Telescope by Celestron

Engineered with the beginner in mind, the ExploraScope 80AZ is the perfect telescope to discover the Moon, rings of Saturn, moons of Jupiter, Orion Nebula, and all the best celestial objects. The included red dot finderscope helps you sight objects in the sky and center them in your telescope's eyepiece. Use the new altitude slow motion rod for precise pointing and following objects as they appear to move across the sky.

ExploraScope comes complete with everything you need to get started with amateur astronomy: 2 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. Plus, you can download Celestron's SkyPortal app for iOS and Android devices to help locate and learn about celestial objects. With ExploraScope, you get the best out-of-the-box experience in the entry-level price range.
