- Product Reviews
The Celestron 60LCM is Celestron's most affordable computerized telescope. For a modest price you get a complete telescope system with classic refractor style optics that deliver very good views of the Moon and planets. The package includes high and low power eyepieces, an erect image diagonal, a red-dot finder, and a computerized Alt-Azimuth mount with a database of more than 4000 objects.
Celestron's 60LCM package includes everything but the batteries. The fully illustrated quick set-up guide makes it easy to assemble and use the telescope. Two eyepieces are included, a 25mm for 28X magnification and a 9mm eyepiece for 78X. The package even includes the latest version of "The Sky X", astronomy software that turns your home computer into a virtual planetarium.
The 60LCM telescope also features Celestron's patented SkyAlign technology. With SkyAlign I don't need a star chart or a compass to align the telescope, I just enter the date and time then point the telescope at three bright stars. SkyAlign tells me the star names, and allows the telescope to find over 4,000 stars, planets, and galaxies by just pushing a button. The "Two-Star Align" and "Solar System Align" modes are even quicker and easier to use. When I just want a quick look at the Moon or a planet, I like to set the telescope on the deck and use "Solar System Align" to begin viewing.
