Overview

100mm Refractor OTA, 660mm Focal Length, f/6.6 Focal Ratio

Description

  • Celestron at NEAF 2016 Ideal for beginners or intermediates, the Inspire 100AZ 100mm f/6.6 Refractor Telescope from Celestron is intended to give novice astronomers a complete rig that is easy to set up and use for making detailed observations of the Moon; and viewing the planets, meteor showers, and brighter deep-sky objects. The combination of large aperture and short focal length translates to a fast focal ratio making this ideally suited for astrophotography - especially wide-field photos. Its unique asymmetrical manual alt-azimuth mount helps to reduce overall weight without sacrificing stability, and a control cable makes finding and tracking objects easier while reducing vibrations. Two eyepieces produce 33x and 66x magnifications, and a 90° erect-image prism not only puts the eyepieces in comfortable viewing position but corrects the view to allow this astronomical scope to be used as a terrestrial spotting scope.

For added usability, the lens cap has been designed to attach most smartphones for capturing pictures and movies. An adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable platform for observing, and the included accessory tray is designed for convenience by folding with tripod so it always stays on and ready. Integrated into the bottom of the mount is a red flashlight that illuminates the accessory tray from the top. This allows you to change eyepieces and filters, or to mount your phone on the lens cap, without affecting your night-adjusted vision and to work with both hands - an important advantage when handling delicate optical gear.

    Great very happy so easy to set up and the finder scope works amazingly well. Only issue was the battery went flat in the finder scope about two days later, not sure if I’d left it on but even if I had it only had enough juice in the battery for a maximum of 12 hours???? I’ll get a new one and see could have been a poor battery. Just love the amazement on the face of those that look through the telescope and see what they have never seen before
