The National Geographic Automatic 70/350 GoTo Refractor is a computer-controlled telescope with a wide-field lens, compact and portable enough to take practically any place. Wherever you travel, whether you're hiking, camping, or on holiday, you can take this telescope with you. The included tripod or a desk are both suitable places to use the computer-controlled refractor GoTo telescope. Numerous moon craters, Jupiter's cloud belts, and Saturn's rings will all be visible. This is just the start of what this telescope can help you observe.
This telescope's computerised hand control addresses the main issue for beginners: lining up the telescope with the night sky and locating celestial objects in the vast, starry cosmos.
The refractor telescope's built-in computer-controlled mechanism can find up to 272,000 different objects in the night sky and is able to offer magnifications between 18x and 35x Once everything is set up, all you need to do is punch the target item into the Go-To hand control, and the telescope will automatically start searching for it. The large 70mm objective lens produces images with very little distortion that are bright and clear.
A sturdy alt-azimuth mount on the tripod makes assembly simple (supplied). To make the process even simpler, a compass, and spirit level are included. This 70/350 refractor telescope is so simple and small that it can be moved and set up in far-off places with ease. Additionally, it includes a specialised software programme that, when run on a laptop or PC, displays the stars in stunning 3D and enables the user to instantly recognise up to one million objects of interest.
With two separate eyepieces included, the user can select magnification settings ranging from 18x to 30x, and the moon filter (provided) eases eye strain when observing moonlight and other bright objects in the night sky. The National Geographic 70/350 Refractor telescope is built to provide years of dependable service, and has an extended 5-Year warranty after online registration.
