An ideal gift for the budding Astronomer!!!
The EQ-1 is a parallactic mounting with an outstanding price-performance ratio! Its stability provides some beautiful and enjoyable hours with your telescope under the impressive sky. It permits a fine adjustment in declination and right ascension axis and can be refitted with an electronic tracking motor drive (to compensate the earth rotation) which replaces manual tracking.
The Optics of the114/900:
The 114mm mirror means superb planetary observing and fascinating excursions into the 'deep sky' are both possible. Discover the rings of the Saturn, the moons of Jupiter, or our neighbouring planet Mars - in good conditions (when at opposition) you will be able to recognise larger surface features. The tube has a 1.25” focuser which can accept any standard eyepiece. The focuser has a focus wheel, allowing you to bring the object you are observing into sharp focus. You can first locate celestial objects with the finder scope fitted, and then position them in the field of view of the main telescope. The finder scope has crosshairs to precisely centre the object.
