If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky.
The AstroMaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.
With the permanently mounted StarPointer and erect image optics, the Astromaster is ideal for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, also featuring a German equatorial mount with Setting Circles – to accurately locate and track sky objects so you can set your sights for that perfect view of the stars and other celestial objects of interest, all shown in crisp clear detail thanks to the all coated glass optics.
Quick and easy to set up using the quick release dovetail attachment with no tools required, the telescope also comes complete with a deluxe accessory tray for convenient storage of all your accessories, a rugged pre-assembled tripod with 1.25” steel tube legs as a sturdy, rigid viewing platform for much improved images, and The Sky Level 1 planetarium software with 10,000 object database and enhanced images to help you achieve the best star gazing experience from your scope and see everything you want to see. It’s out of this world!
