Get even more out of your AstroMaster telescope with two more eyepieces, a 2x Barlow lens, colour and moon filters cloth and hard plastic case. The 15mm Keller eyepiece is great for medium magnification and the 6mm Plossl eyepiece is perfect for high magnifications such as planets. Both eyepieces can fit in a 32mm (1.25 inch) focuser and the Barlow lens. The Barlow lens can be used to double the magnification of the two eyepieces as well as any other 32mm eyepieces. Also, with the T-threads on the Barlow lens a DSLR camera with a compatible T-Ring (not included) can be attached.
What can the filters be used for?
This kit comes with three different filters for observing planets and the moon. These filters can be used on most 32mm (1.25 inch) eyepieces with standard filter threads. The moon filter is tinted to reduce glare form the moon to increase the contrast so you can see more details. The coloured filters can be used on different planets to see different things. Use the red filter to see the ice caps on Mars and use a blue filter to see clouds on Mars or separate the Antares binary star. These filters are not suitable for viewing the Sun. The red filter blocks quite a lot of light and is best used on bright objects.
What type of case does it come with?
The sturdy hard plastic case has foam padding inside with cutouts to protect your eyepieces and filters. Store all your accessories in one place and keep them looking and performing like new. The microfibre cleaning cloth allows you to clean your telescope without leaving any residue, simply blow or brush any dust off your optics before rubbing them.
