Celestron 114LCM

A magnificent telescope for someone new to viewing the stars - just let the telescope find the objects for you!


25mm and 9mm eyepieces
Tracks objects automatically once located
Portable and can be left set up ready for use
Battery powered - using the Power Tank

The Power Tank provides the most cost effective way for providing power to your telescope. The red light maintains your night vision. As an added bonus, the Power Tank acts as a powerful torch and there is enough power to help start your car! Rechargeable - a few hours after each use is all it takes.

The Moon filter fits on to the eyepiece to reduce the brightness of the Moon and improve contrast - greater detail can be observed on the lunar surface. Stops too much light entering the eye near Full Moon.

Top quality optics, superb value for money and a 2 year warranty
