 Key Features

  • 114mm Newtonian Reflector Optical Tube
  • 500mm Focal Length, f/4 Focal Length
  • Manual Alt-Azimuth Mount
  • 25x & 62.5x Eyepieces with Moon Filter
  • 2x Barlow Lens & Smartphone Adapter
  • Red-Dot Finder with Bracket
  • Adjustable-Height Aluminum Tripod

Supporting the optical tube is a basic manual alt-azimuth mount and an adjustable-height aluminum tripod.

This observation kit comes complete with two eyepieces that provide low 25x and moderate 62.5x magnifications with a moon filter, a universal smartphone adapter, 2x Barlow lens, and an unmagnified red-dot finder to make locating objects easier and star-hopping navigation faster.

Optical Tube Assembly

  • Large 114mm f/4.3 aperture to view the moon, planets, stars and clusters, and other bright deep space objects
  • Short 500mm focal length ensures a wide field of view and low magnification potential
  • Newtonian reflector configuration enables large apertures at a lower cost than conventional refractor designs
  • Sturdy and reliable rack-and-pinion focuser
  • 1.25" drawtube accepts the most common eyepieces and accessories

Mount and Tripod

Mount:
  • Manual alt-azimuth
  • Single arm fork mount is solid yet lightweight
Tripod:
  • Lightweight and durable aluminum
  • Adjustable height from 31 to 48" accommodates a variety of users and observing positions
  • Center tray holds accessories such as eyepieces and filters

Included Accessories

Smartphone Adapter:
  • Quickly capture photos and video of your favorite celestial objects and easily post or share
  • Universal fit accommodates most popular models
  • Adjustable lens placement for proper alignment
Eyepieces:
  • 1.25" diameter barrel
  • Accepts most 1.25" astronomical filters
  • 8mm eyepiece yields a high 62.5x power for making detailed observations of the moon and planets
  • 20mm eyepiece produces 25x magnification, which is perfect for large deep-sky objects like constellations and nebulae
Moon Filter:
  • Installs into the front of each eyepiece
  • Neutral density filter improves contrast, especially of craters and mountains
  • Reduces the brightness of the moon for safe viewing
  • Useful from first quarter through full into the last quarter phase
Barlow Lens
  • Installs in the focuser and accepts any 1.25" eyepiece
  • Effectively doubles the magnification of any eyepiece used with it
  • Increases magnification without affecting eye relief, making high-power viewing more comfortable than using extremely short focal length eyepieces
Finder:
  • Unmagnified view ensures faster alignment and easier star-hopping navigation
  • Simple red aiming dot won't obstruct small or dim objects
  • Adjustable brightness won't interfere with night-adjusted vision
  • Includes mounting bracket
