Carson JC-1000 overview

  • 1Description

A simple beginner's telescope designed for astronomical use, the Carson JC-1000 Telescope has a focal length of 800mm, which gives decently-high magnification with shorter focal length eyepieces without being too long for some practical terrestrial use (with either a straight or 45° erect image adapter instead of the supplied 90° star diagonal).  Its simple altazimuth mount makes for easy earthbound or stargazing use; just get a simple sky map and away you go.

Included adjustable 5x24 finderscope
Fullsized tripod
Built-in sunshade increases contrast in daylight & prevents dew during nighttime observation

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beginner telescope The first night we used this we saw Jupiter and three of it's moons! We could even make out the stripes if we looked long enough to allow our eyes to adjust. The tripod is good and sturdy.
