Konus Konustart-700 overview

  • 1Description

A beginning telescope designed specifically for land use with occasional sky observing, the Konustart 700's mount is designed to move solely in straight lines. Celestial bodies, on the other hand, move in semicircular motion. Thus this is best used with lower-powered and wide field eyepieces, but it makes a wonderful device for observing terrestrial objects as well.

Images resolved rightside up & laterally reversed (included corrector can rectify this in exchange for a small loss of brightness)
Finderscope assists in initial object location
Barlow lens doubles the magnification of every eyepiece being used
Moon filter withholds excessive light to better observe moon's details
