Celestron 60AZ Powerseeker Telescope

The 90° diagonal corrects the image horizontally and vertically to use the scope as a spotter on the land and puts the user’s head in a more comfortable position, especially when the scope is aimed high in the sky. A 3x Barlow lens is included and effectively triples the magnification of any eyepiece used with it for a wider range of observing possibilities. An adjustable height aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for any observations.
