Celestron Powerseeker 114mm (4.5") Reflector Telescope

Celestron Powerseeker 114mm (4.5") Reflector Telescope

$199.99

Large beginners telescopes don't have to be expensive. The Celestron Powerseeker 114mm delivers 361x more light gathering than the 60mm telescopes dominating department store catalogs. Translation: You will see better.

Another common short-comming with "cheap" department store telescopes is the poorly supported .965" eyepiece format. 1.25" diameter eyepiece barrels are an industry-standard format, and come with the Firstscope 114mm. Whether you are upgrading your eyepiece collection, or replacing a lost or damaged lens, you can rest assured that you won't be left hunting for a compatible eyepiece.

The included equatorial mount permits smooth and precise movement. As the sky moves, following the planets and stars is as simple as turning a knob. An optional motor drive further simplifies this.
