Solid and stable
The Celestron 80LCM telescope is an ideal telescope for beginning and advanced astronomers who want to go a step further. The telescope has a very strong housing which protects the internal components well. The internal optics are of very good quality and provide a clear and sharp image. The Celestron 80LCM computerized telescope comes with a solid and stable aluminium alt-azimuth tripod that is fitted with a tracking motor and a GoTo system.
This Celestron 80LCM telescope has a 80mm diameter lens which is fully coated. The coating yields very clear images and there is almost no loss of light. This causes almost no loss of light. The focal length of the telescope is 900mm. The included eyepieces are 9 and 25 mm. In combination with the focal length this renders magnifications of 36 and 100 times respectively. The eyepieces are for the 1.25 inch eyepiece fitting, this means you can also use other 1.25'' eye pieces to get different magnifications
Tripod and mount
The Celestron 80LCM comes with a very sturdy alt-azimuth tripod. This tripod has sturdy steel legs and is designed specifically for the Celestron LCM series. The stand is equipped with a full GoTo function with tracking motor. This convenient system makes tracking celestial bodies straightforward. The mount also has a built-in StarPointer so you can quickly find objects.
