The Starscope 767 - Ideal for beginners! This Newtonian is an adequately sized instrument for the starter who doesn't want to pay out too much.
This Newtonian already offers you very nice views of many objects beyond the solar system. The precision ground mirror already resolves many open star clusters into individual stars. The 76 mm aperture is sufficient to discern the brighter galaxies. Also bright emission nebulae such as the Great Orion Nebula or the famous Ring Nebula in Lyra can be detected.
Within the solar system too, there is a lot to be admired. Venus' phase changes, the craggy surface of the Moon or Jupiter's cloud bands are all among features within reach of this reflector.
The mount is a solid construction which allows delicate vertical and horizontal rotation, so that you can focus on any point in the sky or on earth. The weatherproof aluminium field tripod is height adjustable and provides a sturdy base. Due to its easy handling, this instrument is especially well suited for children.
1.25" eyepiece holder:
Unfortunately, most scopes in this range come with a small eyepiece holder. This means, you can neither use any photo equipment nor contrast enhancing filters.
We supply this instrument with a 1.25" eyepiece holder.
