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 display the image upside down. This is normal for astronomical telescopes, but will be noticeable with terrestrial viewing.
Can this telescope track?
The Celestron LCM 76mm can track on a horizontal and vertical axis. Orienting your telescope is quick and easy all you need are three bright objects in the night sky and the telescope can calculate the time, date and location of itself. With a database of over 4,000 objects you won't run out of new celestial bodies to track across the sky. The hand controller lets you move your mount manually and comes with a Sky Tour function to let you know what the best things to look out for in the night sky are. The The 76 LCM comes with The Sky X - First Light Edition astronomy software with a 10,000 object database, printable sky maps and 75 enhanced images.
