This is a brand new, factory sealed, telescope: We have found this incredible new brand of quality telescopes and are now making them available for sale directly to the public with a special arrangement with the factory. The TwinStar family of optical instruments is made by one of the largest "private label" optical component fabricators in the world. In fact, this telescope was manufactured in the very same factory that makes optical products for Bushne, Tasc, Knus and many other name brands. While this is nearly the same instrument you may see in a catalogue for hundreds of dollars more, by developing the TwinStar brand, the factory is able to sell the same product to us for much, much less. This telescope is brand new and has never been removed from the original factory packaging.
Traditional Newtonian Design: This telescope differs from our "short tube" 6 inch reflector in that it sports a more standard optical design and a natural 750mm focal length. This means the telescope is larger -- really it's longer -- but it is also faster. With a focal ratio of f/5.0, it offers superior light gathering power to the considerably slower short tube design. This makes the scope better suited for a wide range of astronomical observing. You're more likely to get sharp views of deeper space objects like nebulae, galaxies and star clusters. Plus planets and the moon still look great. Expect to see the Rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter and details of Mars when observing in dark skies.
Great Value and Loaded with Accessories: This scope makes a great gift, as it is loaded with features and accessories. Included with this telescope are two 1.25 Inch diameter Plossl eyepieces with storage containers. Out of the box, you'll acheive magnifications of 30x and 75x with these two eyepieces. And you can always upgrade to much more serious eyepieces as this scope uses standard sized optical elements. You'll also receive a simple 2x Barlow lens. With the Barlow, you can achieve double up the magnification of planetary objects. Your telescope also comes with a dust-free cleaning cloth and a moon filter designed for reducing moon glare and making surface details more clear.
Equatorial (EQ) Mount and Full-Size Tripod: This telescope comes with an "equatorial" mount. Easy enough for the beginner to use, but for the intermediate to advanced star gazer, you can "polar align" the telescope to the correct latitude whic allows you to more easily track the stars as they rise and set in the night sky. You can add an optional motorized drive that will turn your telescope automatically, allowing auto-tracking of any stellar object that you find. hanks to precision worm gears and a substantial counter weight, the telescope can be balanced so that the slightest finger touch turn of the flexi cables will move the telescope in any direction with a smooth, steady motion. The telescope features a lightweight, but fairly sturdy, full-sized aluminum tripod. This tripod is fully adjustable and allows taller people to observe the stars without having to crouch down in an uncomfortable position. A handy accessory tray on the tripod makes it easy to keep track of extra eyepieces.
Optional Right Ascension Motor Drive Available: With any telescope, you will find that the stars and planets quickly move out of your field of view as the Earth rotates. With our optional right ascesnion motor drive, you can set up your telescope to track automatically with a star as it streaks through the night sky. You will find the RA motor in our store.
