With the National Geographic 114/500 compact dobsonian reflector telescope, the user will be able to view the moon's craters, distant constellations, and even get a closer look at some planets in our solar system. Very simple to use, you can start stargazing right away after taking it out of the package and adding an eyepiece.
The 114 mm wide aperture of this telescope allows for outstanding light gathering, resulting in brighter, more precise images. The dobsonian mount enables the telescope to be set up on any practical flat surface (such as a garden table), providing quick and extremely steady setup. You can easily locate the North or Pole star thanks to the built-in compass, and you are ready to go.
A helpful red dot viewfinder marker that helps when seeking to see a certain celestial object is included. The 114/500 compact dobsonian is a relatively small reflecting telescope and thanks to its optics offers clear images without any colour fringing. With the large aperture of this telescope, viewing the moon may be difficult for extended periods of time due to the excessive brightness of the image, to counter this it comes with a useful moon filter that you can attach to lessen the amount of light that enters your eyes.
This model includes two eyepieces, allowing the user to select between 25x and 83x in terms of magnification. Additionally, a Barlow lens is included, which doubles the magnification for a total reach of 167x. The 114/500 comes with software providing spectacular 3D images of the stars and enables the user to instantly recognise up to one million objects of interest.
