This quality Dobsonian style telescope features a spherical glass mirror with a generous 76mm of aperture. The FirstScope's wide field-of-view provides bright, sharp views of the Moon's mountains and craters in crisp detail. You can also enjoy using the FirstScope to pan the Milky Way, explore open star clusters, marvel at Saturn's rings, or view favourite deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula.
This compact, lightweight telescope is an ideal entry-level astronomical telescope. Just remove it from the box, insert an eyepiece, and you are ready to view. To navigate the sky, simply rotate the azimuth axis in the direction of your desired object. It doesn't get much simpler or more portable than the FirstScope.
Its compact design makes the FirstScope Signature Series easy to take along on your next camping trip, picnic, or hike. When not in use, the FirstScope Signature Series: Moon by Robert Reeves will be a stylish decorative fixture on your bookshelf or desk.
Familiarise yourself with the Moon, our neighbouring world. Robert Reeves' signature FirstScope comes with a custom wrap that highlights 10 lunar features to explore, including Tycho, Plato, and Copernicus. Learn more about the Moon with Robert Reeves' Lunar Landscape eBook which goes into detail about the sizes of craters, how maria basins (dark plains on the surface of Moon) are formed, the natural history of the Moon, and other fascinating information.
About Robert Reeves
Robert Reeves first photographed the Moon in 1959, just as the space program was setting its sights on lunar exploration. Since then, he has become one of the world's best lunar imagers and a prolific author on astrophotography. Using Celestron telescopes from his home in Texas, Robert captures more detailed images than professional astronomers could during the heyday of the Apollo missions.
