Designed and built for beginners, the Celestron ExploraScope 60AZ 60mm f/12 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope offers a complete set-up for viewing the Moon, planets, meteor showers, and satellites. The optics are fully multi-coated with anti-reflection coatings to reduce light loss and produce brighter and clearer images with improved contrast.

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 with a simple twist of the handle. Two eyepieces are included to produce 35x and 175x, with a 3x Barlow lens that effectively triples the magnification of each eyepiece. A 90° diagonal is also provided to put the user in a more comfortable viewing position, and it has an erector prism to correct the image orientation horizontally and vertically to enable the scope to be used for terrestrial viewing as a conventional spotting scope. Its aluminum tripod provides a stable observation platform, and has an adjustable height from 31 to 52" allowing for comfortable viewing by most users. With a total weight of only 5.2 pounds, the ExploraScope easy to transport and handle by most people.
