Barska 675 Starwatcher 60mm Refractor Telescope with Red Dot Finderscope Equatorial Mount Deepsky Astronomy Software -
The Barska 675 Starwatcher Refractor Telescope boasts fully coated optics for increased light transmission. The equatorial mount allows the telescope to follow the apparent daily movement of a night sky object across the sphere of the sky as the chosen target travels around the celestial pole. The 675 Starwatcher offers a generous magnification of 675 power while vaunting an aperture of 60mm. The telescope, mount and tripod are easy to set up and are accompanied with everything necessary to begin the adventure of a lifetime including a finderscope, diagonal, three eyepieces, moon filter, Barlow lens, mount and tripod.
The large focal length of 900mm can be leveraged by the three included eyepieces, a 3x Barlow lens and an erecting diagonal that not only lessens neck strain for zenith area observing but also makes the image upright for terrestrial viewing. The Deepsky Astronomy software is packed with many features that both experienced and novice users will appreciate. There is a searchable database of over 10,000+ objects including, nebulae, star clusters, double stars and variable stars. Simply load it into a PC and begin a journey to the stars and planets.
