Even beginning stargazers can catch stunning views of the night sky with Celestron’s Cometron 114AZ. Cometron 114AZ features a 114 mm parabolic mirror to capture the sharpest views of even dim comets, planets, and other night sky objects. Two high-quality Kellner eyepieces are included to enhance your views. The simple Newtonian reflector optical design, altazimuth mount, and included red-dot finderscope make it easy to navigate the night sky. A steel tripod provides stability.
Cometron 114AZ is also a perfect instrument for viewing objects in our solar system and beyond. Its wide field of view renders the Moon, the Milky Way galaxy, and the rings of Saturn in impressive detail. You’ll even be able to observe the moons of Jupiter as well as distant objects like the Orion Nebula.
