Designed for beginners, the iExplore 50AZ 50mm f/12 Alt Az Telescope from Meade is intended to introduce youngsters to astronomy by giving them a complete set up for viewing the Moon, planets, and meteor showers. Its manual alt-azimuth mount has an easy-to-use control handle for finding and tracking subjects. Its aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching and has an adjustable height from 24" to 44", so a wide range of users can comfortably use it. The iExplore comes with two 0.965" diameter eyepieces to produce 100x and 50x, and the included 90° star diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable - especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith or when using the scope for terrestrial viewing. An integrated dew-shield helps to prevent condensation on the outside objective lens, while blocking stray peripheral light from interfering with observations.
