Description

The StarPro™ AZ features a newly designed single-arm, alt-azimuth mount with slow motion control cables on both axes, making your observing experience a breeze. This new mount also features a vixen-style dovetail receiver, giving you the ability to use different optical tubes.

Easily organize your eyepieces with the integrated accessory holder, located on the sturdy tripod.

The StarPro™ AZ features a bonus Smart Phone Adapter that allows you to take images of the night sky through the eyepiece!

With a compact and lightweight design at an affordable price, the StarPro™ AZ is sure to exceed expectations. It has everything you need to start observing the night sky right out of the box.

The AC 90/600 telescope’s optics are ideally suited to surveying wide fields of view in the night sky. For observing Open clusters, in particular, it works wonderfully!

The 9 centimetre diameter objective lens collects enough light to observe a range of Messier objects. The Messier objects are star clusters, galaxies, planetary nebulae, and supernova remnants captured by the French astronomer Charles Messier (1730-1817) in his catalogue of ‘nebulous objects’. Hunt down as many objects in Charles Messier’s catalogue as you can!

Of course, the planetary astronomy is also now open to you – observe the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter! The relatively wide field of view of this telescope also makes it especially interesting for observing comets.

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.
