The Celestron Inspire 100AZ features an easy to set up tripod, with the folding accessory tray all you’ll need to do is pop open the tripod legs, turn the lock knob, attach the telescope to the base and you’re ready to start star gazing! If you’re looking for an entry level telescope, the Inspire 100AZ is the easiest to set up.
Included with your telescope is the Red LED Flashlight, positioned and stored for transit in the middle of the mount head, the flashlight is ideal for softly lighting up your accessory tray. Alternatively, you can remove the flashlight from its positioning and use it as a spotlight if required.
The focus micrometer, a scale with numbers to indicate the position of the focuser, makes it possible for you to quickly return to a precise focus point for a specific target, such as a bird’s nest or an infinity focus.
With a new and daring design, you’re able to take advantage of the fully integrated smartphone adapter intelligently built into the main telescope lens cap. This is perfect for those beginning to perfect their skill of astrophotography! To use it, you’ll put your smartphone against the surface (the rubber side to maintain the hold), of the outside of the cap so the camera is looking through the imaging port. Then, strap in the phone using two bungee cords – adjustable for your convenience.
The mount design is asymmetrical, meaning that it’s not only lightweight, but is astonishingly stable.
Erect image optics creates a fully correct image, giving you the ability to view with precision day or night, terrestrial or astronomical.
