Celestron Inspire 100AZ Refractor Telescope

The night sky is teeming with life that's not visible to the naked eye. With the invention of telescopes, Outer Space has become accessible and throughout the years individuals have observed the stars, moon, planets and other amazing sights. Not wanting to keep the sky to the few with telescopes, astroimaging developed into an excellent way of showing the public how the sky above is full of life. 

Astroimaging is not only for the professionals though, Celestron introduces the Inspire Telescope, the telescope that makes astroimaging a breeze. This telescope assists the beginner with taking images of the sky above, opening up a whole new world for the amateur astronomer.

Features

The ultimate telescope for the novice to intermediate astronomer, the Inspire 100AZ features the largest aperture in the Inspire family line and its short tube offers a wider field of view perfectly suited for larger, fainter deep sky objects. Packed with features never seen before on entry level telescopes, Inspire features fully coated glass optics, a solid altazimuth mount with a unique asymmetrical design, a sturdy steel tripod with integrated fold-up accessory tray, an integrated smartphone adapter, built-in red LED flashlight, large projected reticle finderscope, erect image optics, and a focus micrometer for easily returning to the same focus point.

Ease of Use

The Inspire has the easiest setup of any telescope in its class. Simply pop open the tripod legs, turn the lock knob on the accessory tray, and attach the telescope tube to the base using the quick release dovetail mount. You are now ready to observe!

Astroimaging Made Simple

The lens cap has an integrated smartphone adapter built into it. Place your smartphone against the rubberized friction surface on the outside of the cap so your camera is viewing through the imaging port. Secure the smartphone using the two adjustable bungee cords. The inside of the lens cap has a fitting that secures to your eyepiece using two set screws. Voila! You are now ready to take high power images through the telescope.

Innovative

The mount has a red LED flashlight built-in. Turn the flashlight on to illuminate your accessory tray with a soft red glow. The flashlight can easily be removed from the mount to provide red light where you need it most.

The focus micrometer is a numbered scale that indicates the focuser’s position. It allows quick return to a specific focus point for specific targets such as a bird nest, infinity focus, etc.
