Classic Refractor Telescope Designed for Beginners

This 60mm refractor telescope features an equatorial mount and an extended set of optical accessories You can observe phases of Venus, Jupiter's planetary ring, Saturn's rings, and lunar craters larger than 5 miles in diameter. The outer edge of the Solar system is less visible but discernible.

The lenses, made of fully coated glass, transmit a sharp, detailed image without aberrations or fogging. An equatorial mount is used for operating the telescope which will take some time to learn how to control the mount, but you will soon appreciate its advantages.

It can be used for performing astronomy observations on the starry sky, and you can observe fast Mercury, and planetary transit round the sun, as well as the International Space Station above the Earth.

The telescope is mounted on a durable aluminum tripod with adjustable height. It reliably stands even on rough surfaces.

The kit includes three eyepieces that provide you with an opportunity to quickly choose optimal magnification for exploring different astronomy objects. The diagonal mirror helps observing terrestrial objects. Like all telescopes, it transmits an image flipped upside down that is inconvenient for terrestrial observations. The diagonal mirror corrects it and brings the image back to its ordinary way.
