    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.

    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).
