Short Tube 6 Inch Newtonian Reflector Telescope. This 6 inch reflector scope boasts a "short tube" design, with a built-in corrector that yields an 1400mm focal length with just a 19 inch primary tube. As a result, this scope packs a serious high-power punch, with magnification up to 400x making it ideal for lunar and planetary observation. You can see outstanding detail when viewing the moon you'll spot the Rings of Saturn and the Moons of Jupiter. Included is an adjustable full-sized aluminum tripod with a built-in accessory tray. This scope has an Equatorial Mount, so it can be polar aligned to track the movements of stars parade across the night sky. Use the declination circle, hour circle and latitude scale to quickly locate any celestial body. Thanks 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 with a smooth, steady motion. Two medium power 1.25" diameter Plossl eyepieces (25mm & 10mm) and a Barlow 2x lens are included. Also included is a dust-free cleaning cloth, a map of the surface of the moon and a moon filter designed for reducing moon glare, and a poster of the solar system.
