What can I see with this template?
See the solar system with up to 300 times magnification or discover the world around you. This powerful Newtonian reflector has an aperture of 127mm, can gather 329 times the light of the human eye and has a fully coated lens to give you an amazing clear, bright image. This telescope comes with two eyepieces, one with 45 times magnification and one with 225 times magnification. There is also a three times Barlow lens which can be used with any of the eyepieces to increase their magnification.

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 tools. It even comes with a stable tripod and counterweight system. There is a tray under the telescope to store your alternative eyepiece and other essentials. Smooth controls mean that it’s easier to track objects across the night sky. The finderscope can help you position your telescope to the right orientation. The Barlow lens can be attached between the focuser and the eyepiece and triples the magnification of each eyepiece.

How easy is it to align my telescope?
The PowerSeeker comes on an Equatorial 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.
