Ideal for near and deep-sky observation, Celestron's AstroMaster 114EQ 114mm f/8.8 Reflector Telescope features a long focal length and a large parabolic mirror that produce detailed images of the Moon, clear views of the planets, and the ability to resolve distant objects such as nebulae and galaxies. The scope is outfitted with a 1.25 rack-and-pinion focuser and two eyepieces to get new users started, and an unmagnified red-dot finder to help set-up, align and navigate easier.
The included manual equatorial mount features slow-motion control cables make it easy to track objects, even when wearing gloves, while also minimizing vibrations caused by handling the mount with your hands — as well as clearly visible indicators on the Right Ascension and Declination axes. An adjustable-height aluminum tripod rounds out the rig with a tray for accessories such as eyepieces, filters, and lights.
Manual German Equatorial telescope
The AstroMaster mount comes with two slow motion control knobs that allow you to make fine pointing adjustments to the telescope in both Right Ascension and Declination axes, also referred to as RA and DEC.
Accessories include a 20mm and 10mm eyepiece, and a finderscope. The two eyepieces offer different magnifications for low and high powered views.
