Explore the earthly horizon or the wonders of the night sky with the Celestron COSMOS 60AZ telescope. The 60mm refractor telescope sits on an altazimuth mount atop a steel tripod that allows for smooth, steady panning as you search the heavens. The built-on StarPointer finderscope can help you home in on exactly what you want to see, of course, but sometimes it's just fun to scan with a wide field of view. The telescope's fully coated achromatic glass lenses ensure a clear, bright view of stars, planets or the moon. The kit includes two Kellner eyepieces for both low- and medium-power viewing options.
A great start for budding astronomers
Celestron developed this telescope with learning in mind. It incorporates the eye nebula graphic from the educational television series COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey, and is packaged with a cosmic calendar poster with images from the series and a planetarium app compatible with Apple® and Android™ devices. Some proceeds from the sale of the Celestron COSMOS 60AZ telescope go to benefit the International Dark-Sky Association to minimize light pollution.
