CELESTRON  •  LCM60 60mm Computerized Refractor  Telescope  •  22050

The Celestron LCM60 Refractor is the perfect GoTo telescope to take for first experience observing. It is a very simple design, consisting of a no tool setup design of a lightweight altazimuth GoTo mount with aluminum tripods to mount the optical tube. Since this telescope is a refractor and has a very slow focal ratio (f/12), it is perfect for basic observation of objects in the solar system. Moon craters, clouds of Jupiter, and the rings of Saturn will all be apparent. Most beginner astronomers may have a difficult time memorizing bright stars in the sky, so Celestron has designed the SkyAlign method which allows the observer to slew and center three bright stars in the night sky after entering the time, date, and location in the NexStar computer controller and based upon the axis and coordinate distances between each, the NexStar can match those against its computer database and determine what stars those most likely were. No knowledge of the night sky is necessary! To aid in properly centering the alignment stars, a starpointer finderscope is included with the Celestron LCM60 Refractor.

Once properly aligned, the NexStar hand controller has a database of 4,000 celestial objects, including the Messier and NGC deep sky objects as well as all the planets. Some information is even included on some of these objects. TheSky Astronomy software is also included with a 10,000 object database and using the NexRemote software, the observer can connect and control their Celestron LCM60 Refractor Computerized Telescope to their personal computer.
