Discovery Sky T76 Telescope is an entry-level Newtonian reflector. Its kit includes everything you need to start making observations. This telescope will be a wonderful gift for a person who is only beginning to get interested in astronomy: learning how to operate the telescope will take only a couple of minutes and there is no need to buy anything separately. The knowledge book about space is included in the kit. It presents complex astronomy aspects in an accessible way.
Discovery Sky T76 is an ideal telescope for observing the Moon and solar system planets with their satellites as well as meteor showers, comets, nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters. Different focus eyepieces and a Barlow lens enable you to use different magnification while exploring space in order to make it a better experience for amateur astronomers. A classic optical finderscope is used to locate celestial objects.
The optical tube is installed on an AZ mount. The mount features a micro screw on the vertical axis allowing you to accurately and smoothly set the telescope. It is easy to point the telescope to the selected object and there is no specific knowledge needed. The tripod is made of aluminium-alloy and its height can be adjusted. An accessory tray can be installed on the telescope's tripod.
The knowledge book “Space. Non-empty emptiness” is included in the kit. This useful guide explains how a telescope is designed, and it describes the most known astronomical objects. You can find interesting facts and vivid illustrations in this book. This book is designed for a wide range of readers, and it will be very helpful in learning the basics of astronomy.
