Konus KONUSTART-900B 60mm f / 15 EQ Refractor Telescope
Designed for intermediate users, the Konus KONUSTART-900B 60mm f / 15 EQ Refractor Telescope is designed to provide new astronomers with a complete setup for viewing the moon and planets, and brighter deep sky objects such as star clusters and galaxies.
Two eyepieces provide 45x and 112x magnifications with a 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider range of viewing possibilities. Additional accessories, such as a smartphone digiscoping adapter, a star diagonal, and a 1.5x erectable eyepiece, increase the telescope's versatility and allow it to do double duty as a traditional telescope.
Its manual German equatorial mount has right ascension (RA) and declination indicators for celestial navigation, and a two-speed RA motor will automatically track objects as they move across the night sky when the mount is correctly aligned with polar. Slow motion cables allow you to manually track your subject with precision and reduced vibrations. A height-adjustable aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for observing the sky
The 60mm aperture is ideal for viewing the moon and planets, as well as terrestrial subjects.
Long focal length of 900mm allows high magnification
focal ratio f / 15
Refractor-style optical design produces sharp, clear views
Fully coated anti-reflective optics improve light transmission, color reproduction, sharpness and contrast
The 1.25 "draw tube is compatible with the widest variety of eyepieces and accessories.
Robust rack and pinion focuser with electronic motor for precision focusing ability with reduced vibration
