Clear, crisp viewing

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.

Features

Overview: The Cosmos 60AZ by Celestron is a lightweight telescope, designed for first-time and amateur astronomers. It provides a clear, detailed view of the Moon's craters and mountains, as well as some expansive objects such as nebulae, star clusters, and constellations. The telescope can be used for celestial and terrestrial use. The 60AZ comes with two eyepieces, a StarPointer red-dot finderscope, a Cosmic Calendar poster, and a tripod with steel legs.

StarPointer Finderscope: The telescope comes with a StarPointer red-dot finderscope which mounts to the outside of the unit and helps you aim the telescope at a distant target. The finderscope must first be aligned with the telescope before use.

Kellner Eyepieces: The Cosmos 60AZ features two Kellner eyepieces: a low power 20mm and a high power 10mm. You can choose which eyepiece to use based on the magnification and field of view you desire. It is recommended that you use the 20mm eyepiece when first setting up and aiming the telescope, then switch to the higher power 10mm eyepiece to get a closer look at the object.

Cosmos Celestron Navigator App: To enhance your Cosmos 60AZ experience, you can download the Cosmos Celestron Navigator App from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. The app has a database of over 120,000 celestial objects, and helps you to locate planets, stars, and galaxies, plus asteroids, comets, and satellites, including the International Space Station. The app can simulate the night sky and create a custom list of visible objects based on your exact time and location. The Cosmos Navigator app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with iOS 7 or later, as well as Android devices with the Android OS Version 4.0 and up.   

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: The telescope's graphics are inspired by the TV series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which aired in the spring of 2014. The Cosmo series "eye nebula" logo can be found on the tube. A Cosmic Calendar wall poster with images from the TV series is also included.
