Award Winning Telescope
BBC Sky at Night magazine awarded the 100AZ 4.5 stars in their review, they said " The ease with which this scope can be set up is a real bonus for beginners wanting to start observing asap"
Simple fast setup
The Inspire has the easiest setup of any telescope in its class. Simply pop open the tripod legs, turn the lock knob on the accessory tray, and attach the telescope tube to the base using the quick release dovetail mount. You are now ready to observe!
Astrophotography with your smartphone
The lens cap has an integrated smartphone adapter built into it. Place your smartphone against the rubberized friction surface on the outside of the cap so your camera is viewing through the imaging port. Secure the smartphone using the two adjustable bungee cords. The inside of the lens cap has a fitting that secures to your eyepiece using two set screws. Voila! You are now ready to take high power images through the telescope.
Built in red LED illumination
The mount has a red LED flashlight built-in. Turn the flashlight on to illuminate your accessory tray with a soft red glow. The flashlight can easily be removed from the mount to provide red light where you need it most.
Precise focusing micrometer
The focus micrometer is a numbered scale that indicates the focusers position. It allows quick return to a specific focus point for specific targets such as a bird nest, infinity focus, etc.
