The PowerSeeker 50 50mm f/12 Refractor Telescope from Celestron is a starter scope designed to introduce viewers to astronomy by giving them a complete set up for viewing the moon, planets, meteor showers, and brighter deep-sky objects. Its manual alt-azimuth mount has an altitude lock and slow-motion controls for precise tracking of subjects. Three eyepieces provide 30x, 50x, and 150x magnifications with a 3x Barlow lens that triples the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider-range of observing possibilities. An adjustable height aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, and the included 90° star diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith.

      Comments about Celestron PowerSeeker 50 50mm f/12 Refractor Telescope:

      This was purchased as a gift for my nephew. He is a beginner in astronomy and I wanted to get him a telescope that was easy to use and would last him a few years. It was very easy to assemble and the instructions were straight forward. We enjoyed the software included in the package and we were gazing at stars the first night we received it.
