Light and portable with full GoTo capabilities, the Celestron 70LCM Computerized GoTo Reflector Telescope features a 70mm objective lens configured in a refractor optical path that allows for detailed observation of the Moon and planets with true color rendition and very little distortion across the entire field of view. This complete observation platform is ideal for beginner astronomers to learn celestial navigation or more experienced users who are looking for a basic grab-and-go option for quick sessions. It includes a motorized fork mount, a computer controller, two eyepieces, a 90° star diagonal, and a red-dot finderscope.
The brain of the LCM-series is the venerable NexRemote controller. Equipped with a database of over 4000 objects, with the ability for users to program up to 99 of their own objects, the controller is a feature-rich GoTo system with multiple alignment aids including the Sky Align system. Simply enter in the day, time, and coordinates where the scope is set up, and the Sky Align algorithms will go to where three prominent objects should be in the sky. Simply confirm each one is in the center of the eyepiece and the scope is aligned with the GoTo system orientated. Don’t know what to view? Use the Sky or Constellation Tours to see the best objects overhead, or in your favorite constellation.
