Celestron POWERSEEKER-80 overview

  • 1Description

B&H put together this Celestron PowerSeeker 80mm f/11 EQ Refractor Telescope and Accessory Kit to give users a complete lunar and planetary observation rig with the capability of manually tracking celestial objects as they move across the night sky. With this kit you get the telescope, manual EQ mount, two eyepieces, and other useful observing gear. The included accessory kit gives you two more eyepieces for a nice range of options, plus two of the most popular planetary filters, and an invaluable moon filter.

  • Celestron PowerSeeker 80mm f/11 EQ Refractor Telescope

    Designed for intermediate users, Celestron's PowerSeeker 80mm f/11 EQ Refractor Telescope is intended to take astronomic observation to the next level by providing a complete set up for viewing the Moon and planets, and brighter deep-sky objects like star clusters and galaxies. Two eyepieces provide 35x and 175x magnifications with a 3x Barlow lens that triples the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider-range of observing possibilities.

    Its manual German equatorial mount has precise Right Ascension (RA) and Declination indicators for celestial navigation, and dual slow-motion cables to track your object with accuracy and reduced vibrations. An adjustable-height aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, and the included 90° erect-image diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope directly overhead. The diagonal's prism corrects images horizontally and vertically, allowing the scope to be used for terrestrial viewing as well.

  • Celestron Night Vision Red LED Flashlight

    Celestron's Night Vision Flashlight is a purpose-built astronomy illumination tool, that uses two red LEDs to preserve night-adjusted vision while providing light to set up, read/write notes, change eyepieces, or navigate. Its combined rotary variable brightness control/on-off switch allows you to adjust the brightness over a wide range up to 25 lumens.

    At the maximum brightness setting, the emitted light is bright enough to locate dropped items or disassemble your telescope after observing. The medium brightness levels will properly illuminate a star chart without affecting your pupil's darkness-adapted dilation. At the lowest brightness setting, there's just enough light to determine a filter designation or an eyepiece's focal length.

    The Night Vision Flashlight is powered by a single 9-volt battery that lasts for up to 12 hours on high and as much as 300 hours on low The supplied 20" (51 cm) cord allows you to hang the light around your neck when not in use.
