Easy to use
The Celestron Astromaster 114EQ telescope is lightweight, easy to set up and very sturdy. The tripod and telescope together weigh a mere 7.71 kg. This makes the telescope ideally suited to take with you on location. The telescope is also suitable for terrestrial observations; however, purchasing an erecting eyepiece for this eyepiece is still recommended.
The mirror has a diameter of 114 mm. Celestron lenses have a StarBright Coating, which means there is a thin layer of magnesium on the mirror. This coating ensures the light is more evenly distributed, which provides a sharper image. In addition, this coating makes the objective stronger
The Celestron Astromaster 114EQ telescope comes with an equatorial tripod. This tripod is more expensive than the altazimuth version, but the tripod is more stable and more agile thanks to the equatorial head. It allows you to easily track celestial objects.
A free CD-Rom called 'The Sky Level 1' featuring planetarium software is supplied with the telescope. This CD-ROM contains software with information about the stars. In the database you will find illustrated information on 10,000 objects. Be inspired by this software and start looking for the heavenly bodies which can easily be found this way!
