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.

I am using this telescope and i am a complete newbie when it comes to stargazing. I am trying to see venus from the balcony of my building, but when I zoom on it, I just see a white dot. Does that mean its a star or is there something im doing wrong? Because it worked fine with the moon.
Asked by: Anonymous
No, you're doing nothing wrong. Venus goes through phases just like our own moon and can be closer or father away. You may want to get a higher magnification eyepiece or a 2x Barlow Lens to magnify the planet and increase its size . Sincerely, Kevin at Celestron

Hi I brought my daughter the telescope and have no idea how to set it up or even how to use it. The lady at the store said just look through the finder and that’s it. Well that’s not the case cause we can’t see anything and don’t know what we are doing. Can you help please?
