Designed and built for beginner astronomers, the Celestron ExploraScope 114AZ 4.5" f/8.8 Alt-Az Reflector Telescope offers a complete set-up for viewing the Moon, planets, meteor showers, and bright deep-sky objects. The optics are fully multicoated with anti-reflection coatings to reduce light loss and produce brighter and clearer images with more accurate colors versus non-coated systems.

The scope features a manual alt-azimuth mount with an altitude adjustment rod that allows users to track objects as they move across the night sky. Two eyepieces are included with a 3x Barlow lens that effectively triples the magnification of each eyepiece. The 20mm erect-image eyepiece produces 50x magnification and corrects images horizontally and vertically to enable the scope to be used for terrestrial viewing as well. For astronomical viewing, the 4mm eyepiece has no visual correction and produces a powerful 250x magnification. Its adjustable-height aluminum tripod provides a stable observation platform, and its maximum height of 52" allows for comfortable viewing by most users.
