What can I see with this telescope?
Explore the night sky using this refractor telescope with computerised mount. See Mars, Jupiter Saturn, comets and other celestial bodies using your computerised mount. With an 80mm aperture, fully coated lens and 131 times the light gathering power of the human eye you get a clear, bright image. This telescope comes with two eyepieces, one with 36 times magnification and one with 100 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 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).

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 80 LCM comes with The Sky X – First Light Edition astronomy software with a 10,000 object database, printable sky maps and 75 enhanced images.
