The PowerSeeker telescopes:
Celestron has created a new range of beginners telescopes with this series, which are extremely good value for money. PowerSseekers are ideal for getting acquainted with one of the oldest and most enjoyable of all hobbies. An inspirational gift for any student who is has always been interested in the wonders of the night sky.
Many discoveries can be made even with the smallest PowerSeeker instrument: even the 50mm aperture PowerSeeker will show detail of the craters on the Moon, the four largest moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn. Deep sky objects such as the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy can also be seen. The performance of telescopes increases dramatically with increasing aperture, or light gathering capacity: The 114mm diameter or even 127mm diameter PowerSeeker is therefore your stepping stone into more advanced amateur astronomy. Details in the cloud bands of Jupiter, surface features on Mars, smaller galaxies and planetary nebulae all become visible. All PowerSeeker telescopes come basically equipped with high-quality 1.25 “eyepieces, allowing you can get started observing immediately.
The Celestron CG-1 mount:
This parallactic mount can take telescopes up to approx. 3 kg total weight. Setting circles on both axes allow the manual fine movement which can be very sensitively adjusted with the flexible slow motion controls. In contrast to the slightly larger CG-3 mount, the declination axis is somewhat less robust than the right ascension axis and therefore does not offer quite the same quality of fine adjustment. The completely pre-assembled tripod has aluminium legs
