What can I see with this telescope?
Whether you want to see the face of Jupiter or something closer to home this powerful Newtonian reflector telescope is ideal. With an aperture of 114mm and fully coated lens you get clear, sharp images with a good apparent field of view. The AstroMaster can gather 265 times the amount of light as the human eye and with two eyepieces, one with 50 times magnification and one with 100 times magnification you can get a look at just what’s out there.

Why choose a reflector telescope?
Reflector telescopes are open at one end and use mirrors to collect and focus light for the image. Typically, the apertures of reflector telescopes are larger than their refractors. This means they can see further and fainter objects and have a wider apparent field of view. The bodies of the reflector telescope can be made smaller, all while maintaining the same level of magnification. Reflector telescopes don’t suffer from chromatic aberration, colours appearing around an image, like some refractors. Reflector telescopes display the image upside down. This is normal for astronomical telescopes, but will be noticeable with terrestrial viewing.

How easy is it to assemble?
Easy to use, you can assemble this telescope without any tools and comes with a stable tripod and counterweight system. There is a tray under the telescope to store your alternative eyepiece and other essentials. Control cables give you control over fine adjustments to positioning easily. The sky pointer can help you position your telescope to the right orientation. The sky pointer is powered by one CR1620 battery (not included).

How easy is it to align my telescope?
The AstroMaster comes on an Equatorial CG-2 mount which can be adjusted to a wide range of positions. By aligning the latitude scale and the setting circles using known points in the sky you can use these to pin point other objects in the night sky. The telescope comes with The Sky X – First Light Edition astronomy software. This includes a 10,000 object database, printable sky maps and 75 enhanced images so you can see exactly what it is you’re looking for. Discover the universe or explore the world around you with this great telescope.
