  • Celestron AstroMaster 76 EQ Equatorial Reflector Telescope 31035 is a dual-purpose telescope that is great for both terrestrial and celestial viewing. The Astro Master 76 EQ Telescope by Celestron produces bright and clear images of the Moon and planets through the telescope 's Fully Coated Lens. The Reflector Telescope has a 76mm Mirror, taking in enough light to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn. Also, these Celestron Telescopes come with two telescope eyepieces of 35X and 70X magnification, which can pull in objects both near and far away. Celestron AstroMaster 76 EQ Telescopes have an Equatorial Mount that allow the user to follow objects in the sky much easier than an Altazimuth (Alt-az) Mount. Equatorial mounts use a set of counterweights that balances the telescope as it moves, making the movement more smooth. This is also very effective in high magnifications, when the smallest nudge of the telescope will greatly affect the viewing area. In addition, these Celestron AstroMaster Telescopes have the Reflector design, which is favored by astronomers with their more advanced setup and controls, when compared to a Refractor Telescope. These Telescopes come with a Tripod with 1.25" thick steel legs, providing a rigid and stable platform. These features of the Celestron AstroMaster 76 EQ Equatorial Reflector Telescope 31035 make it a great telescope for beginners and intermediate users.
