Meade Instruments' provides a complete observational platform that is ideal for astrophotography or imaging with the StarNavigator NG 102mm f/6.5 GoTo Achro Refractor Telescope. Outfitted with an achromatic refractor lens system, views within our solar system as well as deep-sky objects are bright and clear with minimal distortion and accurate color representation across the entire field of view. This iteration of the refractor-style StarNavigator employs a large objective and relatively short focal length to produce a fast 6.5 focal ratio, making it well-suited for long-exposure imaging of the Moon, Sun (with proper optional filters), planets, and general wide-field photos.

Driving the dual-axis DC servo motors in the single-arm fork mount is the AudioStar hand controller. This update to their iconic AutoStar enables quick and easy set up and alignment to get you observing faster, while offering guided tours and audio commentary on 500 of its over 30,000 objects in the internal database. Capable of multiple tracking speeds, the mount and controller function together to provide smooth and precise tracking of fast-moving objects like the Moon and slower deep-sky subjects like nebulae.

A full-sized adjustable-height aluminum tripod provides solid support for the mount and OTA while still being lightweight and portable. Two eyepieces are included that provide 25x and 73x magnifications, and the 1.25" drawtube will accept any 1.25" eyepieces and accessories that are widely available (sold separately). A 90° prism is also provided that not only puts the observer's head in a comfortable position — especially when the OTA is pointed at or near the zenith — but also corrects the image horizontally and vertically so the StarNavigator can be used as a conventional terrestrial spotting scope.
