See More Objects In One Night Than Galileo Saw In A Lifetime
This incredible technology knows the night sky right out of the box. Turn it on, and after a brief alignment procedure, your telescope is ready to take you to any object in its over 30,000 object library or take you on a guided tour of the heavens. See more objects in one night than Galileo saw in a lifetime.
Explore the night sky with the Meade StarNavigator™ 102 Telescope. Boasting awesome specifications, with a 102 mm (4”) aperture, 800 mm focal length and f/7.7 focal ratio, the StarNavigato 102 includes Meade’s revolutionary AudioSta Computer Controller and digital audio technology, which tells you interesting and educational information about the size, shape, history and distance of celestial objects as you view them through the eyepiece.
Includes planetarium software and instructional videos to teach you how to use your telescope. The AudioStar™ Computer Controller can be updated with additional information over the internet.
The solidly built metal construction mount features advanced electronics to make alignment easy, including an internal clock, while the full size and adjustable height aluminum tripod allows comfortable viewing from either a seated or standing position. The mount is conveniently powered from the included internal battery pack which holds eight (user supplied) "AA" batteries. The generous light gathering ability of this scope combined with the enhanced electronics package means this may be all the telescope the casual observer might ever need or require.
