    Celestron Astromaster

    Manual German Equatorial telescope:

    The AstroMaster mount comes with two slow motion control knobs that will help you make fine pointing adjustments to the telescope in both Right Ascension (RA) and Declination (DEC) axes. 

    Accessories Included:

    To boost you off quickly into your starry explorations, the Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ telescope kit comes with a 20mm and 10mm eyepiece, and a built-in Red Dot Finderscope (StarPointer). The two eyepieces offer different magnifications for low and high-powered viewings, and the 20mm has a built-in erect image corrector (to correct image horizontally and vertically for land-viewing/terrestrial use). 

    Starry Night Software: 

    Included with your purchase is a free download of Celestron’s Starry Night Software. This advanced software by Simulation Curriculum offers detailed information about celestial objects and helps you plan your next observing or imaging session.
