The Perfect Accessories
Q1: Can I buy and fix a motor drive on this telescope? If yes, can I buy motor drive from you?
Yes, there is a motor drive sold as an accessory
Q2: Can this be use to look at land and sky or planets? I'm looking for under $200 telescopes that can be use in both land and sky.
A: Unfortunately, the Celestron PowerSeeker 80 EQ's equatorial mount is not suited to terrestrial viewing. If you're interested in a "double-duty" scope, your best bet is probably the Celestron AstroMaster 90 AZ Refractor. It has nice, correct-image optics and an altazimuth mount that can be used as easily for viewing land objects as for stars and planets.
Q3: Does the mount & counterweight come with the telescope?
Yes. This telescope comes with everything you see pictured. It will include everything you need to get started.
Q4: How is the finderscope on this scope?
A: The Celestron PowerSeeker 80 EQ has a decent little finderscope. It's a good match for the 80mm aperture of the main scope.
Q5: How long is the scope?
A: The optical tube length is 38in.
Q6: How long is the shipping going to take? How much does it weigh?
A: Free shipping would take 7 to 10 business days to most locations within the contiguous USA. Shipping weight is 35 pounds, and the scope itself weighs approximately 28 pounds.
Q7: What is the weight in kgs and in pounds?
A: The Celestron PowerSeeker 80 EQ weighs 19 pounds, or 8.6 kg.
