SKU: CEL-21079

What We Like About the Celestron Cometron 114AZ

  • The simple yet effective optics on the 114AZ present clear, sharp views without unwanted extraneous color.

  • The "fast" focal ratio of the Cometron 114 yields extra wide fields of view, perfect for viewing comets and other large astronomical objects.

  • Set this lightweight and portable telescope up in a flash, with no tools. It allows you to be spontaneous about your star-gazing, and that just adds to the fun!

  • You can move the Cometron around with an easy-to-use handle, and find objects quickly with the included red dot finder.

More About the Celestron 114 mm Cometron Alt-Azimuth Telescope

Even beginning stargazers can catch stunning views of the next comet with Celestron’s Cometron 114AZ. This telescope was designed specifically for viewing comets, but it will serve you well on all of your astronomical endeavors for years to come! The Celestron 114AZ Newtonian telescope offers a 4.5" parabolic mirror to capture the sharpest views of comets on their journey toward the Sun, whether they are big and bright or diminutive and faint.

The simple Newtonian reflector optical design, altazimuth mount, and included red-dot finderscope make it easy to navigate the night sky. A steel tripod provides stability, and two high-quality Kellner eyepieces are included to get different magnifications on your chosen objects.

The Celestron Cometron 114AZ telescope is also a perfect instrument for viewing objects in our solar system and beyond. The Celestron 114AZ Newtonian telescope's wide field of view renders the Moon, the Milky Way galaxy, and the rings of Saturn in impressive detail. You’ll even be able to observe the moons of Jupiter as well as distant objects like the Orion Nebula.
