This easy to transport, computerized telescope will provide beginners with a lifetime of pleasure!
This extremely compact Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope is basically a reflecting telescope with an additional Maksutov lens at the front. This corrective lens ensures a crisp image with no chromatic aberration.
The altazimuth mount uses two motors, for horizontal and vertical movement, to navigate the night sky.
The well-proven Autostar electronic control hand box comes included in delivery. The AutoStar software works without needing a PC or laptop, and lets you automatically slew to and follow a large number of astronomical objects, so that the target object always remains in the field of view despite the earth's rotation.
The LED red dot finder provided makes observing the night sky even easier.
An optional 45° erecting prism can be used to turn the telescope into a spotting scope for observing terrestrial objects during the day.
