Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ Telescope
The Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ Telescope is a 114 mm (4.49 Inch) Reflector on a CG-2 Equatorial Mount. If you're looking for a great telescope appropriate for celestial viewing, then the Celestron AstroMaster Reflector Series is for you. Each AstroMaster reflector model is capable of giving views of our starry sky. With its time-tested durability and high-quality optics at an affordable price, the Celestron Astro Master makes a great first telescope!
As a bonus, Celestron has included a nice selection of accessories for your new telescope with this purchase, which means you will be observing the same day you unpack the box. Accessories include two full-sized eyepieces (one standard and one that erects the image at the same time), a Star Pointer finderscope for easy location of objects you wish to observe, and even software for your PC. The Sky - Level 1 will let you study and print star charts from your computer screen... and that's just the beginning!
The Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ is a high-quality, economical telescope with a superb optical system. These telescopes yield breathtaking views of the moon, Saturn with its ring structure, Jupiter with its belts, and hundreds of deep-sky objects including galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. Add an optional solar filter and you can observe activity on the Sun. While observing, you'll notice that as the Earth rotates on its axis, stationary stars appear to move across the sky causing the object you're viewing to drift out of the field-of-view. A telescope on a mount can be aimed at a celestial object and guided with the slow motion controls to track your target!
This Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ comes complete with a pre-assembled mount and tripod. The CG-2 equatorial mount is quite stable, with setting circles and slow motion controls on both axes for easy and smooth tracking.
Strict adherence to Celestron's tough quality standards for manufacturing, assembly, and testing ensures that each telescope not only performs well but remains durable after years and years of use.

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
This telescope weighs approximately 17 lbs fully assembled. This includes the tripod and counterweights.
How is it that the optical tube length is 20" while the focal length is around 1000mm (40")?
The primary mirror reflects light back up towards the secondary mirror, and there is a built-in lens in the focuser. That is what gives this telescope the 1000mm focal length.
