What can I see with this telescope?
This amazing computerised telescope will help you see the universe in a different way. See the moons of Jupiter, the Pleiades star cluster or the rings of Saturn in breath-taking detail. This 114mm Newtonian reflector telescope comes with a tracking mount and two eyepieces, one with a 40 times magnitude and another with a 111 times magnitude.
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 and assemble, 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. The mount has a built-in spirit level to help you level the telescope. There are nine different slew speeds, allowing you to 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 the time, date and location of the telescope. Use the hand control to browse through its database of 4,000 objects to locate and track 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 114 LCM comes with The Sky X – First Light Edition astronomy software with a 10,000 object database, printable sky maps and 75 enhanced images.
