Explore the wonders of the universe with this AstroMaster Reflector Telescope. Track comets and look at the moon and stars with ease using the supplied eyepieces to gain up to 70 times magnification. The AstroMaster 76EQ can gather up to 118 times the light of the human eye, giving you a clear view, and the aluminium optical coating provides a crisp image. With two eyepieces you can choose the ideal magnification for you.
Why choose a reflector telescope?
They can see further and fainter objects than refractor telescopes, as reflectors typically have larger apertures. This also means you are likely to benefit from a wider apparent field of view. Another advantage of reflector telescopes is that they are less prone to chromatic aberration than refractors, which means you are less likely to see random colours appearing around an image. 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?
You can easily assemble this telescope without using tools, and it comes with a stable tripod and counterweight system. There is an accessory tray under the telescope to store your alternative eyepiece and other essentials. The sky pointer, which is powered by one CR1620 battery (not included), can help you position your telescope to the right orientation.
How easy is it to align my telescope?
The AstroMaster 76EQ comes on a CG-2 Equatorial Mount. You can use the latitude scale and setting circles, using known points, to pinpoint other objects in the night sky. This telescope comes with The Sky X – First Light Edition astronomy software, which 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.
