Optical Performance

  • 76mm aperture is ideal for lunar and planetary viewing
  • Fast f/4 focal ratio ensures images are bright
  • Short 300mm focal length yields lower magnifications for wide fields of view to complement the manual AZ mount
  • Newtonian reflector design produces a longer effective focal length than the physical length of the optical tube to ensure a compact form factor
  • Resolution: 1.83 arcsec, Rayleigh; 1.53 arcsec, Dawes
  • 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser

Mount

  • Manual alt-azimuth mount
  • Stable tabletop base
  • Easy set up and leveling on virtually any surface including tables and car hoods

Eyepieces

  • 1.25" diameter barrel
  • Accepts most 1.25" filters and accessories
  • Fully multi-coated to improve color and contrast
  • 4mm eyepiece for 75x magnification
  • 20mm eyepiece for 15x magnification
