The unique design and affordable price and great opportunities are the main advantages of this series. Telescopes of this series give clear and contrasting images of the Moon and planets.
PowerSeeker 80AZ is a lens telescope that collects over 130 times more light than the human eye. It is mounted on an azimuthal assembly of a versatile application suitable for both astronomical and terrestrial observations. The 80 mm lens allows observation of the Sun (special filter required), Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter along with moons, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Within the range of the telescope, there are lighter comets, asteroids and beyond the Planetary System: galaxies, nebulae, globular and open clusters, double and multiple stars. Due to its low weight and short focal length, the telescope is ideally suited as a portable device that can take vehicles in regions with better air transparency far from big cities.
