For mobile viewing of the earth and the stars, the Celestron PowerSeeker 70 refractor telescope is ideal. During the night, the PowerSeeker can see the planets, moon, star clusters, and brighter deep-sky objects like the Andromeda Galaxy and Orion Nebula. The optical tube is perfect for use as a daytime spotting scope due to its upright picture star diagonal.
You can start observing right away because setting up the telescope is simple.
The telescope and its accessories may be put together quickly, even if it's your first time.
You can modify the telescope's height or set it down on elevated surfaces like a picnic table thanks to the adjustable tripod legs.
Telescope with a manual Alt-Azimuth
Use a pan handle to fly through the sky. For smooth and precise pointing, use the clutch-equipped Alt-Az control. To follow your target in the eyepiece, move the clutch up, down, or left, right.
A finderscope, a Barlow lens, an erect image diagonal, two eyepieces (20mm and 4mm), and a PowerSeeker 70 are also included.
The two eyepieces provide various magnifications for viewing your target item.
The magnifying power of each eyepiece is tripled by the 3x Barlow lens.
The right-side-up viewing capability of the erect picture diagonal makes it excellent for viewing terrestrial topics, though it can also be used for astronomical objects.
To make observation simpler, the finderscope will assist you in quickly centring an item in your eyepiece.

Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic (unless you have the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
Never use your optic to project an image of the Sun onto any surface. Internal heat build-up can damage the optic and any accessories attached to it.
Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
