The Celestron Explorascope 80AZ Telescope is a manual alt-azimuth, refractor telescope perfect for celestial viewing on the go. The Explorascope 80AZ can view the planets, moon, star clusters and brighter deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy.

Setting up the telescope is a breeze. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. The Explorascope 80AZ is perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you.

Navigate the sky with a panning handle Alt-Az control with clutch for smooth and accurate pointing. Move the clutch in an up/down, left/right fashion to track your object in the eyepiece.

The Explorascope 80AZ comes with two eyepieces (20mm and 4mm), 3x Barlow lens, 90° erect image diagonal, and a finderscope. Choose the 20mm eyepiece for low power or the 4mm eyepiece for higher magnification views. The finderscope helps you quickly center an object in the eyepiece for easier observing.
