Description

The Celestron National Park Foundation’s (NPF) Explorascope 60AZ is a manual alt-azimuth, refractor telescope perfect for celestial viewing on the go. The NPF Explorascope 60 can view the planets, moon, star clusters and brighter deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy.

Setting up the telescope is a breeze. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. The total telescope kit weighs in at just 5.2 pounds—perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you.

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.

Accessories Included

The NPF Explorascope 60AZ comes with two eyepieces (20mm and 4mm), 3x Barlow lens, 90° erect image, and a red dot finderscope. Choose the 20mm eyepiece for low power or the 4mm eyepiece for higher magnification views. The red dot 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 105x magnification (20mm eyepiece) or 525x magnification (4mm eyepiece).
