What can I see with this telescope?
Track the stars across the night sky using this refractor telescope with computerised mount. See all the way to Jupiter and to the stars beyond or get amazing views of closer objects.. The 102mm aperture and multi-coated lens combined with 212 times the power of the human eye light gathering capabilities give you detailed, clear and crisp images. This telescope comes with two eyepieces, one with 26 times magnification and one with 73 times magnification.

Why choose a refractor telescope?
Refractor telescopes use lenses to collect and focus light to magnify the image. The telescope is sealed at both ends, making this type less prone to distortion because of air currents or dust contamination for a steadier, sharper image.

How easy is it to assemble?
Easy to use, this telescope can be assembled and disassembled quickly and easily. There is a tray under the telescope to store your alternative eyepiece and other essentials. There are nine different slew speeds, allowing you to rotate the telescope to observe different objects in the sky. The LCM can be powered by eight AA batteries (not included). The auxiliary port can be used for additional accessories such as the GPS accessory (not included). The finderscope runs off a single CR2032 (included).

Can this telescope track?
Locate three bright objects in the night sky and the computerised telescope can orientate itself, calculating its own location, time and date. Use the backlit LCD display on the hand control to browse through its database of 4,000 objects, before locating and tracking your celestial object across the night sky. You can use the Sky Tour function and your LCM telescope will give you a list of the best objects to view so you don’t miss a thing. The 114 LCM comes with The Sky X – First Light Edition astronomy software with a 10,000 object database, printable sky maps and 75 enhanced images. the telescope also comes with NSOL telescope control software for basic control of your telescope via computer (with optional RS-232 cable)
