The telescope comes equipped, as standard, with a 5x magnification Finderscope, for the easy location of night sky objects. The two supplied eyepieces have been specially upgraded to higher quality Super Modified Achromats to increase your viewing pleasure. The telescope accepts standard 1.25" accessories so the magnification range can easily be extended with additional 1.25" eyepieces and/or Barlow lens. The uncomplicated manually operated Dobsonian alt-azimuth mount makes it a convenient, highly portable, grab and go system. The complete telescope & mount comes fully assembled straight out of the box.
Complete package - Includes two eyepieces and a finderscope - a ready to use top brand telescope at an amazing price
The beautiful, luxurious tube graphics depict a richly historical theme celebrating the history of the telescope. The images have been specially designed to symbolise Galileo and his conflict with the Catholic church. Galileo Galilei's public championing of Copernicus' theory of heliocentrism, which was contrary to the geocentric beliefs at the time, eventually led to him being denounced to the Roman Inquisition. He was subsequently tried, suspected of heresy, forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest. Of course Galileo, "The father of modern science" and "The father of modern observational astronomy" was proved right in the end.
The telescope tube is also adorned with the words "Galileo 400" and "International Year of Astronomy" as well as key dates in the lifetime of Galileo.
