Enjoy Galaxies, Nebulae and Planets with this instrument
A great introduction to astronomy for those requiring larger aperture views afforded by the 114mm mirror.
Because the earth rotates once on its axis every 24 hours, celestial objects move rapidly through the telescopic field, particularly at higher powers. The equatorial mount of the Meade 114EQ-ASTR greatly facilitates object tracking: simply turn one or both of the control cables.
The large 114mm-diameter mirror of this model gathers 361% more light than 60mm telescopes, so you'll see fainter, more distant objects in far greater detail. The beginning amateur who intends to use a manual telescope on a regular basis will find the Meade EQ114mm Stargazing Telescope a valuable investment in astronomical enjoyment.
