Wrapped with a graphic featuring an image of the moon captured by astronomer and lunar imager Robert Reeves, the Celestron FirstScope 76mm f/4 Signature Series Moon Alt-Az Reflector Telescope is designed as an ideal entry-level optic for observing the Moon and planets, comet-watching, and enjoying meteor showers. This tabletop telescope features a Newtonian reflector optical design, and comes with two fully multi-coated 1.25″ diameter eyepieces that yield 15x and 75x magnifications. The manual tabletop alt-azimuth mount gives you easy control of the telescope for tracking near and deep-sky objects. This telescope is easy to assemble and transport, so you can spend less time setting up and more time enjoying the night sky. Purchase of the scope includes a free download of Reeves’ ebook “Lunar Landscapes”.
- 76mm aperture is ideal for lunar and planetary viewing
- Fast f/4 focal ratio ensures images are bright
- Short 300mm focal length yields lower magnifications for wide fields of view to complement the manual AZ mount
- Newtonian reflector design produces a longer effective focal length than the physical length of the optical tube to ensure a compact form factor
- Resolution: 1.83 arcsec, Rayleigh; 1.53 arcsec, Dawes
- 1.25″ rack-and-pinion focuser
