Bushnell now manufacturers a NorthStar Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope with the incredibly popular "GoTo" capacities. The Schmidt-Cassegrain design has become the most popular in amateur astronomy because they are the masters of compromise. They're not unwieldy like a refractor, nor do they require the cleaning regimen of a Newtonian reflector. They instead have great optics, a relatively wide field of view, and a good ratio of light gathering per dollar.
After a simple alignment procedure, the user merely tells the scope where to go amongst its 20,000 object database. Everything needed to begin enjoyable viewing immediately is included in the package.

Included tripod is 42" / 107 cm fully extended
Included Barlow lens doubles your eyepiece power, giving you twice the magnification when used with appropriately-powered eyepieces
