  • 1Description

Ideal for beginners or as a simple grab-and-go option for intermediates, the Inspire 80AZ 80mm f/11.3 Refractor Telescope from Celestron is intended to give novice astronomers a complete rig that is easy to set up and use for making detailed observations of the Moon; and viewing the planets, meteor showers, and brighter deep-sky objects. Its unique asymmetrical manual alt-azimuth mount helps to reduce overall weight without sacrificing stability, and a control cable makes finding and tracking objects easier while reducing vibrations. Two eyepieces produce 45x and 90x magnifications, and a 90° erect-image prism not only puts the eyepieces in comfortable viewing position but corrects the view to allow this astronomical scope to be used as a terrestrial spotting scope.

For added usability, the lens cap has been designed to attach most smartphones for capturing pictures and movies. An adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable platform for observing, and the included accessory tray is designed for convenience by folding with tripod so it always stays on and ready. Integrated into the bottom of the mount is a red flashlight that illuminates the accessory tray from the top. This allows you to change eyepieces and filters, or to mount your phone on the lens cap, without affecting your night-adjusted vision and to work with both hands - an important advantage when handling delicate optical gear.
