Sometimes, bigger is better. This is one of our best values in big reflectors It’s a a standard Newtonian design 6″ reflector telescope and the larger design means sharper images and more clarity with less maintenance. For you that means an excellent mix of deep-space viewing with the awesome views you want of the Moon and Planets. Compatible with advanced eyepieces and a motorized drive, this is a great starter scope for someone who really wants to take the plunge and begin a lifetime of learning and exploration. This telescope differs from our “short tube” 6 inch reflector in that it sports a more standard optical design and a natural 750mm focal length. This means the telescope is larger — really it’s longer — but it is also faster. With a focal ratio of f/5.0, it offers superior light gathering power to the considerably slower short tube design. This makes the scope better suited for a wide range of astronomical observing. You’re more likely to get sharp views of deeper space objects like nebulae, galaxies and star clusters. Plus planets and the moon still look great. Expect to see the Rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter and details of Mars when observing in dark skies. This bundle includes our Universal Smartphone Camera Adapter, which will fit virtually any smartphone on the market today and is a great low-cost introduction to astrophotography.
