The Powerseeker 80AZS 80mm f/5 Refractor Telescope from Celestron is designed as an entry-level telescope for viewing bright wide-field deep space objects, larger planets, and the Moon. Its 80mm objective lens and 400mm focal length give it respectable light gathering and magnification potential, while keeping the size and weight manageable. The manual alt-azimuth mount and 5x24 finderscope makes finding objects as easy as point-and-aim.
The scope comes with two eyepieces that produce magnifications of 100x and 20x, and the 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser will accept any 1.25" eyepiece or accessory. For comfortable astronomical viewing, or to use it as a spotting scope, there is an included 90° erect-image diagonal to correctly orientate the subject horizontally and vertically in the field of view. To aid in terrestrial viewing, the mount has an altitude locking bar that holds the scope in place allowing you to more easily track subjects as they move. The aluminum tripod has independently adjustable legs for precise leveling in uneven terrain, and comes with a removable accessory tray.
