    Accessories Included

    The PowerSeeker 50 comes with four eyepieces (20mm, 12mm, 4mm, and 1.5x image erecting eyepiece), star diagonal, finderscope, and a 3x Barlow lens. The four eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. The 3x Barlow lens triples the magnifying power of each eyepiece. The star diagonal allows for right-side-up viewing ideal for terrestrial subjects but can also be used for celestial objects.
