Celestron AstroMaster 70 AZ Telescope - 70mm Refractor on Alt-Azimuth Mount
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, 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 70AZ 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 and 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 will drift out of the field view. A telescope on a mount can be aimed at a celestial object and guided with the slow motion controls to track your target!
The Celestron AstroMaster 70AZ comes complete with a pre-assembled mount and tripod. The Celestron altizimuth mount is quite stable, with pan handle control and clutch for easy, 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.

What size cover will fit this telescope?
Due to the 36" length of the optical tube, you will actually need a TG-R5 cover (45" long) as the smaller 3" and 4" covers are not long enough.
