Telescope Description

This telescope comes with an aperture of 114mm, meaning you will capture enough light (125% more than a 76mm and 165% more than a 70mm telescope) to get bright and detailed views of night sky objects.

Additionally the longer focal length of 900mm allows for great views of many celestial objects, particularly in dark sky environments. 

This telescope also provides excellent magnification of 

  • Magnification - 225x  with the 4mm eye piece 
  • Magnification - 90x  with the 10 eye piece
  • Magnification - 36x  with the 25mm eye piece

Combined with the accompanying eyepieces, finder-scope, and equatorial mount, you'll be able to appreciate views of the Moon, planets and bright deep sky objects in no time.

This telescope also comes with a 1.5x erecting prism, so you can also use your telescope for land and sea viewing.
