Manual Alt-Azimuth telescope
Navigate the sky with a panning handle Alt-Az control with clutch for smooth and accurate pointing. Move the clutch in an up/down, left/right fashion to track your object in the eyepiece.
The NPF Explorascope 114AZ comes with two eyepieces (20mm and 4mm), 3x Barlow lens, and a 5x24 finderscope. Choose the 20mm eyepiece for low power or the 4mm eyepiece for higher magnification views. The 5x24 finderscope helps you quickly center an object in the eyepiece for easier observing. For even more magnification, connect your 3x Barlow lens to triple the power of each eyepiece. Combined with the Barlow lens, this telescope provides up to 135x magnification (20mm eyepiece) or 675x magnification (4mm eyepiece).
