What can I see with this telescope?
View the universe around you with this great computerised telescope. Focus in on Mars or study the vast depths of the stars with a fully coated lens giving you a clear, crisp image. The telescope comes with two lenses, giving you a choice of up to 78 times or 28 times magnification. This comes attached to a tracking mount to make sure you get a great image. With a 76mm aperture and light gathering ability 118 times that of the naked eye, you’ll get a wide field of view to find the perfect view.

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 those of refractor telescopes. This means they can see further and fainter objects and have a wider apparent field of view. The bodies of the reflector telescope can also 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.

It is worth noting that 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, this telescope comes in three major sections which can be assembled and disassembled quickly and easily. There is a tray under the telescope to store your alternative eyepiece and other essentials. With nine different slew speeds, you can rotate the telescope to observe different areas of the sky. The LCM can be powered by eight AA batteries (not included Order Code L39BF).

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 help you spot the best sights in the night sky. 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.

Can you get a camera to mount on this telescope

Asked by: Trio
Yes you can mount various types of camera on the scope from dedicated monochome/colour USB cameras like this to full size DSLR cameras, when connecting a DSLR you will usually need an adaptor to attach it to the scope. I'd recommend researching online about Astrophotography.

Can this be used for terrestrial viewing as well?

Asked by: Jools
Whilst it can be used for terrestrial viewing the image would be upside down and reversed, you can however use a combination of reflectors and/or lenses to correct this.
