Celestron 80LCM overview

  • 1Description

The Celestron 80LCM 80mm f/11 Computerized GoTo Reflector Telescope features an 80mm objective lens configured in a refractor optical path that allows for detailed observation of the Moon and planets with true color rendition and very little distortion across the entire field of view. This complete observation platform includes a motorized fork mount, a computer controller, two eyepieces, a 90° star diagonal, and a red-dot finderscope.

The brain of the 80LCM is the venerable NexStar controller. Equipped with a database of over 4000 objects, with the ability for users to program up to 99 of their own objects, the controller is a feature-rich GoTo system with multiple alignment aids including the Sky Align system. Simply enter in the day, time, and coordinates where the scope is set up, and the Sky Align algorithms will go to where three prominent objects should be in the sky. Simply confirm each one is in the center of the eyepiece and the scope is aligned with the GoTo system orientated. Don't know what to view? Use the Sky or Constellation Tours to see the best objects overhead, or in your favorite constellation.

    Celestron 80LCM reviews

    80LCM 80mm f/11.25 Computerized GoTo Refractor Telescope is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Pretty awesome telescope. It was very easy to assemble I haven't used it yet but I'm excited to use it for the first time. The only thing I didn't like was that I was charged for the led light when it says it was included other than everything is great

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Novice's & Beginnners I have never owned a Telescope before so was nervous about getting the right one. This was not only VERY EASY to set up, but VERY POWERFUL for a novice like myself. Was able to see Jupiter & 4 of it's moons on the first night!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Have yet to get many warm temps or clear skies to put in some solid time but we have used it for a few planets and the moon. My son is amazed at the view. The unit arrived on time and in good condition. The team at B&H was a pleasure to work with.
