The Meade Polaris 90mm EQ Refractor Telescope is an ideal instrument for lunar viewing and observations of the Solar system planets. Its high-aperture objective lens (90mm) allows you to see the phases of Mercury and Venus, satellites of Saturn, the Great Red Spot of Jupiter and many other interesting objects.
The kit contains three eyepieces and a Barlow lens – basic configuration gives you a wide choice of magnifications. Observations should always begin with a long focal length eyepiece. A Red Dot finderscope allows for quick aiming at desired celestial objects. The package also includes a DVD with Planetarium software.
A reliable German Equatorial mount allows following the diurnal motion of objects in the sky. Slow motion controls allow for smooth movement of the tube. Moreover, there is an opportunity for installation of motor drives. The steel tripod provides stable position of the instrument during observations.
AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition software will help you learn the night sky. It displays more than 10,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies and nebulas. You can print out star charts and even plan your observing session. It operates on any Windows based PC.
