This telescope is ideal for easily getting started in amateur astronomy. A super gift for children or adults, and excellent value for money!
The instrument is simple to understand and quick to assemble without any tools needed, much along the lines of: ‘set up, insert eyepiece, observe’!
The AZ-1 Mount:
This mount is very popular with beginners in astronomy as it is very simple to operate. The entire telescope is very easy to move around in both azimuth and elevation. For beginners, it has the advantage that they do not have to worry about first aligning the telescope before use. Setting up the telescope is hence very quick and straightforward: Simply erect the tripod and mount, attach the telescope to it, and you are ready to go! The attitude can be locked in both axes so that, once found, objects remain in the field of view. There is also a fine adjuster for moving the tube precisely in elevation. The mount is attached to a height-adjustable aluminium tripod.
Included in delivery of the mount:
- AZ-1altazimuth mount
- robust aluminium tripod (height-adjustable from 71cm to 121cm)
