The Celestron PowerSeeker 50AZ is a compact telescope for children and the novice astronomer. You can easily set up the telescope and a tripod is included. With a 600mm focal length, you can observe objects, such as the moon or zodiac signs, well. The Barlow lens with a 3x magnification will let you increase the focal length to 1,800mm. This way, you can zoom in even more to the beautiful things the starlit sky has to offer. With the included SkyX software, you can easily print a star chart to help you with your quest of the universe.
