Product Description

CELESTRON • LCM80 80mm Computerized Refractor Telescope  •  22051

The Celestron LCM80 Refractor Computerized Telescope is a beginner GoTo scope designed mostly for planetary observing due to its refractor design and mid-slow focal ratio of f/11 to capture bright objects at a smaller field of view. The portable design of this telescope is outstanding. Simply mount the optical tube to the computerized base and snap on the accessory tray. Once properly assembled, the starpointer finderscope can be used to properly center stars in the eyepiece. For beginning observers, knowledge of the night sky is very limited, even from light polluted areas in the city. The SkyAlign method designed from Celestron and included in most of their telescopes including the LCM series, requires no understanding of the night sky, just the date, time, and location to be entered into the NexStar hand controller. Subsequently, the controller will ask the observer to slew to three bright stars or planets in the night sky and center them in the eyepiece. Based upon the axis and distances between these three points, the computer can match against its celestial database and determine what stars those most likely were, hence the telescope aligns itself! Once this is finished, observing can begin. There is a 4,000 celestial object database in the NexStar hand controller, including the planets and numerous deep sky objects like the Messier and NGC. Additionally, the included TheSkyX telescope software has a 10,000 object database. With the included 25mm and 9mm eyepieces, magnifications will result in 36x and 100x.
