Perfect for astronomers of all ages, Celestron's AstroMaster telescopes produce bright, clear images of the Moon, planets, and even objects beyond our Solar System.
You won't believe how easy it is to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with your AstroMaster 114EQ. When used for astronomical viewing, AstroMasters yield breathtaking views of the Moon, Saturn's ring structure, Jupiter's cloud bands and moons, favorite deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula, star clusters, and more.
The Celestron AstroMaster 114 EQ Reflector, in particular, is ideal for the novice skywatcher. It features all-glass optical elements, smooth operating steel tripod mountings with manual motion controls, and coated optics for enhanced image brightness and clarity.

Finally, a deluxe accessory tray helps you keep track of eyepieces and accessories in the dark.

Highlights of the Celestron AstroMaster RA Motor Drive
The motor drive allows the telescope to continuously track an object without the need to touch the telescope. The motor drive automatically turns the telescope at a pace to counter the movement of the Earth. This means if you are looking at Jupiter, there is no need to continue to turn the telescope tracking knobs to keep it in your eyepiece for viewing. With the motor drive, the object you are viewing stays in your eyepiece the entire time. Not intended for children under age 12.
