Celestron AstroMaster 76 overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for near and deep-sky observation, Celestron's AstroMaster 76EQ 76mm f/9.2 Reflector Telescope features a moderate focal length and a respectable-sized parabolic mirror that produce detailed images of the moon and clear views of the planets. The scope is outfitted with a 1.25 rack-and-pinion focuser and two eyepieces to get new users started, and an un-magnified red-dot finder to help set-up, align and navigate easier.

The included manual equatorial mount features slow-motion control cables make it easy to track objects even when wearing gloves, while also minimizing vibrations caused by handling the mount with your hands; and clearly visible indicators on the Right Ascension and Declination axes. An adjustable-height aluminum tripod rounds out the rig with a tray for accessories such as eyepieces, filters, and lights.
