Description

The Popular Science by Celestron AstroMaster 80AZS is a short refractor telescope perfect for terrestrial and celestial viewing.  The short focal length is ideal for viewing star clusters and nebulae, while the erect image diagonal makes the optical tube ideal for using as a spotting scope during the day.

Setting up the telescope is a breeze and will have you observing in no time. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customize the telescope’s height or place it on raised surfaces like a picnic table. An included accessory tray will help you keep track of eyepieces and other small items while observing.

The entire telescope kit weighs just 10 pounds, so you can take it anywhere, hassle-free.

Smartphone adapter and Bluetooth remote shutter release – Create your own stunning images and video of celestial or terrestrial objects with the smartphone adapter. With its light, rigid frame, this accessory allows you to connect any smartphone to your AstroMaster’s eyepiece. The additional magnification provided by the eyepiece allows your phone to capture great images of the Moon and planets.  This smartphone adapter installs easily by clamping over the top of an eyepiece.  The smartphone is held in position with the help of tightening knobs that securely lock your phone in place. To capture the best image, Celestron has also provided a Bluetooth remote shutter release that allows you to trigger the camera’s shutter on any Android or iOS smartphone remotely, without disturbing the placement of your phone and telescope. 

NOTE: Some large and/or bulky phone cases (including folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.

Manual Alt-Azimuth telescope

Navigate the sky confidently with your Popular Science by Celestron AstroMaster 80AZS’s intuitive pan handle. The Alt-Az control with clutch allows for smooth tracking and accurate pointing. Like a photographic tripod, you can move the clutch in an up/down, left/right fashion to follow your object in the eyepiece.

Popular Science Edition Accessories Included

In addition to the smartphone adapter and Bluetooth remote shutter release, the Popular Science by Celestron AstroMaster 80AZS includes a full selection of optical accessories, including two eyepieces (20mm and 10mm), an erect image diagonal, a StarPointer™ red dot finderscope, a 2x Barlow lens, and a 1.25” Moon filter. The two eyepieces offer different magnifications so you can view your subject at low or high power. The erect image diagonal allows for more comfortable viewing and right-side-up images. StarPointer™ red dot finderscope will help you locate objects and quickly center them in your telescope’s eyepiece. The 2X Barlow lens will allow doubling the magnification power and the Moon filter reduces glare and increases contrast on the surface of the Moon.
