The blue 90mm StarNavigator Refractor Telescope from Meade is a lightweight portable telescope for amateur astronomers and hobbyists beginning their stargazing adventure. The 800mm focal length, single arm motorized alt-azimuth mount, red dot viewfinder, and two eyepieces are all casual observers need in an entry level telescope. The 9mm eyepiece achieves a magnification of 88.9x, and the 25mm eyepiece yields 32x. With a 1.25" diameter barrel, the eyepieces will accept most 1.25" filters, regardless of manufacturer.
To help get the most out of the telescope, it comes with the AudioStar computer hand controller, allowing observers to quickly align their telescope with over 30,000 celestial objects in the built-in, and updateable, database. Simply locate a star, planet, nebula, or galaxy of your interest in the controller and the computerized alt-azimuth mount will automatically align the telescope with the selected celestial body. The AudioStar is also preloaded with over 400 audio files that are great learning tools for parents, teachers, and amateur astronomers. A step-by-step instruction manual and instructional DVD helps novices setup their tripod, mount, and telescope in minutes, leaving more time for observation.
