The Astronomy Lesson Telescope

Like having your own personal astronomer to guide you through the night sky, this high-powered telescope automatically finds and tracks celestial objects at the touch of a button, then tells you about the objects in a clear, natural voice. There are no complicated calculations or adjustments to make, simply follow the prompts on the telescopes computer keypad to input the date, time, and your location. Then, scroll through the keypads database and select one of 20,000 pre-programmed celestial objects and the quiet motor-driven telescope locates and tracks it. Theres no need to make manual changes (although the telescope can be adjusted manually if desired), and once the object is located, the keypad speaker provides facts about what you a re seeing in a human voice, such as the objects distance from the Earth. You can even press a button for a highlight tour of some of the night skys more notable seasonal visuals. The 3 diameter reflector telescope captures light with mirrors, rather than lenses, for expansive, deep space views, and its 525X magnification power shows details like the stark landscape of the moons surface, or the deep crimson of Jupiters giant red spot. Two eyepieces are included: a 20mm for spotting closer objects, and a higher-powered Barlow for triple magnification and high-detail resolution of more distant phenomena. The handy remote has a backlit display and red-lit keypad. The telescope assembles and disassembles in two steps, so its easy to transport to and from your favorite star-gazing spots. Includes quick release tripod for rapid set up or storage, and an accessory tray. 18 H x 9 1/4 W x 43 L. (24 lbs.)
