If you’re ready to graduate from a small telescope or want your first telescope to have more light-gathering power than typical starter models, step up to the AstroView 6 reflector. Its 150mm parabolic mirror has a focal length of 750mm (f/5), so it offers generous wide-field views of deep-sky objects when used with the included 25mm Plossl eyepiece. For lunar and planetary study, use the 10mm Plossl eyepiece (also included)for more powerful views. The AstroView’s EQ-3 equatorial mount features slow motion control knobs, which allow you to center and track objects in the viewing field. An optional single- or dual-axis EQ-3 DC drive is also available for electronic guiding (sold separately). A polar-alignment scope is built into the equatorial head for precise orientation. The AstroView mount couples to a sturdy adjustable aluminum tripod with accessory tray. Includes 6×30 finder, 1.25″ rack-and-pinion focuser, and adjustable four-vane secondary mirror support.
