Thanks to its tough altazimuth mount and quality refractive optics, the Orion Observer 70mm refractor telescope works well for both daytime terrestrial looking at and nighttime astronomical use. The included altazimuth mount offers intuitive up/down (altitude) and left/right (azimuth) motion to make maneuvering the telescope easy. If you are scanning a scenic landscape or surveying the Milky Way for star clusters, this telescope will supply a nice experience. The Observer 70mm Altazimuth Refractor Telescope is well suited to beginning astronomers thanks to its versatility and simple, easy-to-use design. It's a lightweight and compact telescope, weighing just 6. 5 lbs. Once assembled, so it is easy to carry to any observing place, be it out on the lawn or an hour's drive into the hills. Its glossy black refractor telescope optical tube is made of seamless aluminum and equipped with a smooth-action rack-and-pinion focuser which accepts 1. 25 inch accessories and eyepieces. Housed inside the telescope tube is a multi-coated, achromatic glass objective lens that's 70mm in diameter, with a focal length of 700mm (f/10). This lens takes in 36% more light than a 60mm lens, meaning you will be able to see more detail on both celestial and terrestrial objects. In comparison to a 60mm refractor, the Orion Observer 70mm and its bigger optics will reward you with lighter pictures and, for astronomy, a bigger repertoire of objects to see. You will enjoy remaining looks at the Moon's cratered surface, Jupiter's cloud bands and moons, Saturn and its rings, the majestic Orion Nebula, and the mind-boggling Andromeda Galaxy, to name just some of the treasures you may be able to see. A dew and glare shield on the objective end (or front of the telescope) helps prevent dew from forming on the optical lens and also helps block unwanted stray light.
Worked on for beginner and amateur astronomers, the Meade Polaris Series delivers an experience that will have you wanting to the skies for many nights to come. Combining an equatorial mount and quality optics with superb value, the Meade Polaris refracting and reflecting telescopes are your gateway to the cosmos. The Polaris 80 refracting telescope is great for beginners and amateurs who want to discover more. With an 80mm (3. 1") aperture size, the Polaris 80 will deliver bright, clear pictures for the aspiring astronomer to take pleasure in. If you are looking at details on the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter, polar caps on Mars, or terrestrial objects, the Polaris 80 Refractor lets the 1st-time observer to explore the world, solar system, and beyond. Pros: Right-side up image means you may be able to use it for daytime observing (birds, hunting, ocean, etc) Once polar aligned, the equatorial mount lets you to find and track celestial objects because it rotates with the Earth, instead of the up-down left-right directions of an altazimuth Refractor means you don&'t have mirrors to align (collimate); it&'s prepared to go out of the box Cons: Not as much detail seen from deep-sky objects when in comparison to our reflecting telescopes Q: How is this telescope different than other Polaris models (127, 114, 90, etc)? A: The differences between each model are aperture size and telescope type. The bigger the aperture, the more light-gathering power the telescope will have, ensuing in lighter, in depth pictures. The Polaris 114, 127, and 130 are reflecting telescopes, meaning they use mirrors to produce a picture. The Polaris 70, 80, and 90 are refracting telescopes, which use lenses to produce a picture. The Polaris 80 has an 80mm aperture, smaller than the Polaris 130, 127, and 114 reflectors, however it's the second biggest refracting telescope of the series.
This telescope was intended with traveling in mind while giving exceptional value. The Travel Scope is made of the highest quality materials to ensure stability and durability.

Featuring a compact and movable design with plentiful optical performance, the Travel Scope is ideal for terrestrial also as informal astronomical observation.
Celestron has filled so many enhancements 11076 into this new generation mount that it's hard to know where to start. Many of these enhancements are aimed squarely at the imaging market, so we'll begin there. For starters, Celestron has incorporated a belt drive system to offer smoother functionings, when slewing a heavy instrument package. They have also incorporated home position sensors so that the mount will generally start from a recognized index position upon power up. This makes it easier for anybody to do the go to alignment, however it's particularly important for anybody considering remote operation of the telescope via a computer interface. Speaking of a computer interface, Celestron has incorporated a USB 2. 0 interface. Conversion from RS232 to USB at the physical connection level is a thing of the past! If you do plan to to operate the mount from a PC, a new control program worked on in cooperation with PlainWave Instruments is being introdiced with this mount. On the mechanical side, we're happy to see that Celestron has eliminated the outside wiring to the Declination motor. They have also incorporated a dual saddle that will accept both D (Losmandy) and V (Vixen) style dovetail bars; that is CG-5 and CGE in Celestron terminology. The instrument capacity of this mount is 55 pounds (25 kg), which is adequate for the EdgeHD 1100 optical tube equipped with a camera and guidescope. Big parts include the equatorial head, tripod, and counterweight, weighing 44 pounds, 19. 2 pounds, and 17 pounds in that order. With the heaviest single part weighing only 44 pounds, almost anybody should find it simple to set this mount up in the field. Big knobs for azimuth and latitude angle, joint with a Teflon bearing on the azimuth axis, make it simple to do good modifications in polar alignment.
Omni XLT series features the stable platform of the CG-4 mount and high quality optics.

Light enters the tube traveling to the mirror at the back end. Light is then ''bent'' forward in the tube to a single point, its focal plane. A flat mirror called a ''diagonal'' intercepts the light and points it out the side of the tube at right angles to the tube through the eyepiece. The eyepiece is placed there for easy looking at. Newtonian Reflector telescopes replace heavy lenses with mirrors to gather and concentrate the light, more light gathering power for the money. You may be able to have focal lengths up to 1000 mm and still enjoy a telescope that's comparatively compact and movable. Newtonian Reflector telescopes do require more care and maintenance because the main mirror is exposed to air and dust.

It's a high-powered telescope, with good performance observation of celestial bodies, suited for entry-level amateur astronomers and kids. Different magnification eyepieces can make you free with observed at different distances and sizes objects. And the telescope as the looking at mirror, may be upright image completely. As long as you have enough imagination, there will be more interesting and practical usefulness. WHICH MAGNIFICATION?- SELECTING THE CORRECT EYEPIECE The optimum magnification depends on what you're looking at. As a rule of thumb, the best image results from using a magnification, which isn't more than 1. 5X - 2. 0X the diameter of the objective lens. For observation of moss heavenly bodies, a magnification of 75X - 100X may be achieved with a 50mm objective lens. A lower magnification should be used for the observation of the stars. This gives a wider field of view and simplifies aiming the telescope at the wanted object. The maximum magnification should be used only for especially clear objects like the moon, which is comparatively close to the Earth and bright, permitting good resolution of details at high magnification. ERECTING EYEPIECE The 1. 5X Erecting Eyepiece not only increases the magnification of telescope but also correct the direction of the image. As an example, a telescope, which has a magnification of 60X, will have a magnification of 90X when a 1. 5X Erecting Eyepiece can be used. Moreover, when the telescope can be used to view landscope, the erecting eyepiece can straighten out the image. Package: major tube x 1 H20mm eyepiece x 1 H6mm eyepiece x 1 1. 5X Erecting Eyepiece x 1 90 Zenith mirror x 1 33cm height Aluminum tripod x 1 Lens cloth x 1.
