This telescope is a two-element, air-spaced, fully multi- coated objective refractor telescope which means gives great optical performance. It is a a well- proven model which gives good astronomy viewing of nebulae, bright galaxies, planets and the Moon as well as excellent terrestrial views, a great general purpose telescope.
If space is an issue, this telescope is one of the most compact refractor telescopes in the market today with a barrel length of only 400 mm. Easy to fit in smaller areas, move out to the deck and not too intrusive in the house.
One of the greatest assets of these solidly built telescopes is portability. The light-weight optical tubes make them "take it with me" telescopes. Their optical tubes can be adapted to fit into an airline carry-on bag, or into a hiker's backpack.
Ease of Use
They are quick and easy to set up and the low- maintenance, enclosed optics come fully collimated from the factory.The optical tube assemblies are held firmly by hinged, felt-lined "tube mounting rings" which allow easy installation and optical tube rotation and balancing.
It is complete coming with the telescope, tripod, finderscope, accessory tray, two eye-pieces and full instructions to set up
These telescopes perform well as a fixed aperture lenses for both astrophotography and terrestrial photography. The "fast" focal ratios, combined with today's high speed films, make them useful for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as nature photographs. With a suitable T-adapter, a camera can be connected directly to the T-mount thread on the eyepiece holder that allows closer focussing for terrestrial photography.
