TS-Optics JUPITER - Refractor Set 70/900mm on equatorial mount for beginners age 7+
The classical refractor according to Fraunhofer with its fully coated objective provides a clear and contrasty image. It makes your first astronomical observations a success. The telescope is quickly set up and handling is very easy. Of course, an easy to understand manual is supplied. The telescope is suitable for all stargazers of age 7+ and offers joy in astronomy right from the beginning.
This telescope already gathers approximately 100x as much light as the human eye. Thus you are able to see hundreds of nebulae, star clusters and galaxies beyond our solar system. The high resolution shows exciting details of objects in our solar system, like the crater landscape of the moon or the rings of Saturn. Get enchanted by the changing positions of Jupiter´s moons, like Galileo Galilei once before.The equatorial mount EQ3-1
Good optics need a stable mount. We don´t offer this refractor with a small EQ1 mount, we sell it on the stable EQ3-1 mount instead. The image stands still even at high magnification. The mount is very easy to set up and can easily be handled by any beginner.
The mount offers professional functions such as:
- polar fine alignment for precise setup
- oversized field tripod
- well suitable counterweight for optimal balance
- manual slow motion control in both axes through flexible shafts
- tracking motor available optionally
Craters and ridges can be seen easily. Watch the sun rise in the craters while more and more detail becomes visible!
Observe the phases of Venus or the rings of Saturn. On Jupiter you can see many details including the atmospheric bands and the Galilean moons. Under good conditions you can see the great red spot - a huge hurricane twice the size of our home planet!
Stars, galaxies and nebulae
Hundreds of celestial objects are within reach of this telescope. Compared with the naked eye, the telescope collects almost 140x as much light! Hundreds of nebulae, star clusters and galaxies are within reach of the JUPITER telescope.
Point, for example, the instrument to a remarkable cloud in the milky way close to the constellation Aquila. Look through the telescope at low magnification, and suddenly the diffuse cloud turns into a sea of stars, with a nebulous spot in the middle of the field. Now use a higher magnification and watch the spot turning into a pretty star cluster within the ocean of stars of the milky way.
With an optionally offered objective filter film, high-contrast solar observations are possible.
Warning: never point a telescope (or even a finder scope) to the sun without correct front filter or accessories of similar safety, as you risk immediate blindness! Our Earth
You can also use this telescope as a powerful spotting scope for viewing planetside objects such as birds, ships and mountains. The telescope offers a very good image sharpness for planetary observing, the errecting eyepiece gives the right orientation.Delivery contents
