Celestron Powerseeker 80 EQ overview

  • 1Description

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 Powerseeker 80 EQ reviews

    PowerSeeker 80mm f/11 EQ Refractor Telescope is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good telescope, good value We bought this for my 12 yo, and none of us have any experience. It seems to be good quality and very good value. We have successfully viewed planets through the low power lens, not yet been able to focus through the higher power eyepiece. The equatorial mount seems to be well done, though it is a little looser than ideal -- perhaps our fault in setting it up. It should be said that the Celestron instructions are pretty terrible for beginners, in part because of Chinese english (or some other explanation for bizarre syntax and typos), in part because of poor labelling and photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied! I've never owned a telescope and decided this was perfect for my first. I'm totally satisfied! It has enough zoom to make out the cloud rings and moons of Jupiter. The craters on our moon look incredibly crisp and apparent through either of the provided eyepieces. Altogether, it's a great scope for the price and I would definitely recommend it to another beginner.
