Educational instrument recommended by experts
Perfect as a gift
A sizeable table-top type astronomical telescope, designed for astronomy lovers and the youngest ones. The telescope is uncomplicated to operate and has been created in order to derive maximum joy from observations. No wonder its construction is recommended by renowned world astronomical organisations. Impressive performance of the telescope is guaranteed thanks to the primary mirror of a 76 mm diameter and 300 mm focal length. Together with high quality lenses the instrument delivers bright, clear and contrastive images of stars, planets and the Moon. Only now, along with the telescope, you will receive a special contrast boosting filter for the Silver Globe observations, which improves the image when the Moon is full and makes it possible to observe thousands of fascinating details – mountains, seas and lots of craters.
StarQuest was equipped with two interchangeable eyepieces and a Barlow lens, which raises the magnification even three times! Regardless the small size, the instrument is compatible with most 1,25” standard accessories. This means, components of much bigger and more expensive telescopes can be used, which enables the telescope’s upgrade.
A wooden base, designed by the legendary John Dobson, is stable and durable. At the same time it occupies very little room. The telescope is so easy to operate that even a child can manage it. This is a great alternative to anyone who simply have no space for a classic, full size telescope. Opticon StarQuest is great for small balconies – show your nearest and dearest the space without having to leave home!
