Celestron AstroMaster 70EQ
Celestron products include a two year warranty except binoculars and spotting scopes which have limited lifetime warranties.
Essentially the same telescope as the Celestron Astromaster 70AZ but mounted on a German-Equatorial (GEQ) mount. The GEQ mount takes a little longer to setup but enables easier tracking of targets at high magnifications. An optional tracking motor is also available that will automatically track targets as they move across the sky.
Please don't let it's low price mislead you, the Celestron Astromaster 70EQ is not a department-store toy. The 70mm aperture, long focal-ratio and coated optics provide pleasing views of Jupiter and some of it's moons. Saturn with it's rings is easily identifiable and the lunar surface will show a wealth of detail. Some of the brighter deep-sky targets are also within reach including the Orion nebula, M13 Globular cluster in Hercules and the beautiful double-star Albireo.
Includes 10mm & 20mm Celestron eyepieces.
