An ideal instrument for the wide-field observation of Deep-Sky objects,
including Nebulae, Star Fields, Star Clusters and Galaxies, the Moon,
bright planets and Comets, as well for daytime terrestrial observations
when used in conjunction with a 1.25" erecting prism (not supplied).
This wide-field, short-tube telescope is great as fixed aperture lense
for both Astrophotography and terrestrial photography. Its “fast" focal
ratio makes it useful for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as
nature photographs. The intuitive and easy to use AZ3 Alt-Azimuth mount
provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow motion
cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes.
