The PowerSeeker 50 mm f/12 Refractor Telescope from Celestron is a starter scope designed to introduce viewers to astronomy by giving them a complete setup for viewing the moon, planets, meteor showers, and brighter deep-sky objects.
Its manual alt-azimuth mount has an altitude lock and slow-motion controls for precise tracking of subjects. Three eyepieces provide 30x, 50x, and 150x magnifications with a 3x Barlow lens that triples the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider range of observing possibilities.
An adjustable height aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, and the included 90° star-diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith.
