Celestron AstroMaster 70 AZ overview

  • 1Description

B&H assembled the Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ 70mm f/13 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope Moon Observer Kit to give new amateur astronomers everything they need to enjoy viewing details of Earth's only natural satellite—the Moon. This kit comes with the 70mm AstroMaster telescope and two eyepieces, a moon filter to enhance views of the Moon while making it safe to do so, a red flashlight that illuminates without affecting your night-adjusted vision, plus an erector prism to use the scope as a conventional spotting scope for earthbound subjects.

  • Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ 70mm f/13 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope

    Celestron designed the AstroMaster 70AZ 70mm f/13 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope as a multi-function starter-scope that can be used for both astronomical and terrestrial viewing. Its medium aperture and long focal length allow it to draw in a generous amount of light with a high magnification potential to allow observation of the larger planets and the moon. The included 90° diagonal has an integrated erecting prism that corrects the view to enable the scope's use on land. Celestron includes two eyepieces for high and medium magnifications.

    The AstroMaster is outfitted with a manual alt-azimuth mount and to make finding and tracking objects easy, there is an altitude control handle and an azimuth lock. Supporting the mount and optical tube is a stainless-steel tripod with sturdy 1.25" diameter legs and an adjustable height from 24 to 41-inches. Its center accessory tray pulls double-duty as a convenient place to store eyepieces and smartphones while it locks the legs in place to improve stability and reduce vibrations.

  • 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.
