Celestron PowerSeeker 80EQ Refractor Telescope is designed to give the first-time telescope user the perfect combination of quality, value, features and power. The PowerSeeker is quick and easy to set up. Their sturdy equatorial mounts are perfect for tracking objects in the night sky, and the collapsible alt-azimuth mounts are perfectly suited for terrestrial viewing as well as astronomical use.

All PowerSeekers include a full range of eyepieces, plus a 3x Barlow lens that provides an increase in viewing power hundreds of times greater than that of the unaided eye. They are designed and manufactured using all fully coated glass optical components with high transmission coatings for enhanced image brightness and clarity.

The PowerSeeker mount comes with two slow motion control knobs that allow you to make fine pointing adjustments to the telescope in both Right Ascension and Declination axes, also referred to as RA and DEC.

Solar Warning    
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.

Telescope itself is OK but I found the provided finder scope useless. Purchased a better one now all works fine
