Description

The Celestron Astromaster 114EQ Reflector – 114 mm provides exceptional nighttime viewing experiences by delivering bright and clear images of celestial objects.

Its Astromaster mount features two slow-motion control knobs, enabling precise adjustments in both Right Ascension and Declination axes.

With 20 mm and 10 mm eyepieces, users can enjoy varying magnifications suitable for low and high-powered views. The Astromaster finderscope aids in locating celestial targets. Additionally, a moon filter minimizes glare from the lunar surface, optimizing lunar observations.

The motor drive accessory transforms the manual German equatorial mount into a tracking mount. This compensates for the Earth’s rotation to keep celestial objects within the telescope’s field of view. Users need only to make occasional adjustments in declination to track objects accurately with these telescope accessories. The motor drive operates on a 9V battery, offering convenient and cord-free usage. Its reversible design enables seamless hemisphere switching, catering to observers in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

The Celestron telescope also features a smartphone adapter. This facilitates easy attachment of smartphones to telescope eyepieces. With a light and rigid frame, this accessory accommodates most smartphones, providing an additional magnification boost for capturing detailed images. The adapter’s simple installation process is compatible with a range of phones, making sure any astronomer can easily connect with their telescope.

Included Starry Night Software enriches users’ astronomical experiences by providing valuable resources and knowledge about celestial objects and observing techniques. This comprehensive software package offers insights into the night sky and assists in planning observing sessions, making it a valuable tool for observers.

The Celestron Astromaster 114EQ Reflector offers a complete and versatile observational setup. The Celestron Astromaster telescope combines advanced features with user-friendly design elements.

With its impressive optical specifications and included accessories, the Celestron telescope caters to astronomy enthusiasts of any level.
