The Inspire 100AZ is the ultimate telescope for the novice to intermediate astronomer. It features the largest aperture in the Inspire family line, and its short tube offers a wider field of view perfectly suited for larger, fainter deep sky objects. It offers easier transport and storage, and is packed with features never seen before on entry level telescopes. The Inspire features fully coated glass optics, a solid altazimuth mount with a unique asymmetrical design, a sturdy steel tripod with integrated fold-up accessory tray, an integrated smartphone adapter, built-in red LED flashlight, large projected reticle finderscope, erect image optics, and a focus micrometer for easily returning to the same focus point.

To set-up you simply pop open the tripod legs, turn the lock knob on the accessory tray, and attach the telescope tube to the base using the quick release dovetail mount. You are now ready to go.

The lens cap has an integrated smartphone adapter built into it. You place your smartphone against the rubberised friction surface on the outside of the cap so your camera is viewing through the imaging port. Secure the smartphone using the two adjustable bungee cords. The inside of the lens cap has a fitting that secures to your eyepiece using two set screws. You are now ready to take high power images through the telescope.

The mount has a red LED flashlight built-in which you turn on to illuminate your accessory tray with a soft red glow. The flashlight can easily be removed from the mount to provide red light where you need it most.

The focus micrometer is a numbered scale that indicates the focuser’s position. It allows quick return to a specific focus point for specific targets such as a bird nest, infinity focus, etc.

A Celestron Hustle
Saturday, 13 January 2018  | 

I bought this telescope a month ago.
It's best for viewing the moon - and that's about it. Basically paid nigh on £300(!!) for an accessory tray, night vision light and smart phone adaptor. Sky At Night magazine (who might know a little bit about astronomy) rated the Celestron 100AZ. The optics got one of the lowest ratings - kind of fundamental really, wouldn't you say? Be prepared to buy expensive eyepieces and getting on your knees and praying for near perfect conditions to see anything with this particular scope. ask yourself, is it a gift for.someone who may change hobbies quickly (I.e. A child) then fine, go ahead. However, if you want to see planetary details, avoid. Some sites describe it as a beginner to intermediate telescope. I'd say it is very much so.for a beginner telescope. For a little you can get a scope with 'go to' capabilities and more aperture!!
