At a Glance:

  • Included Star Diagonal prism flips images the right way up (though still mirrored back-to-front), making the 60AZ ideal for both sky and land observing.
  • Has slow motion controls for smooth tracking of objects through the sky.
  • Includes 2 eyepieces and a 2x Barlow lens.
  • The included compass is useful when using star charts to locate items in the night sky.
  • Includes a lightweight aluminium tripod, which makes it light and portable enough to easily move to a different viewing site.
  • Includes a moon map so you can identify craters and moon mountains!

What will I be able to see with the 60AZ Telescope?

  • The moon, including details of craters.
  • Jupiter and Saturn, with detail becoming visible in good viewing conditions.
  • Phases of Venus.
  • Good for terrestrial viewing too - view ships in the distance, watch whales swimming in the ocean, and view landscape scenery up close.

General Features:

  • 60mm Refractor Telescope with an Alt-Azimuth Mount.
  • Quick and easy setup.
  • Permanently mounted Cross-hair finderscope.
  • Accessory tray for convenient storage of accessories.
  • Equipped with slow motion controls for smooth tracking of objects through the sky.
  • Erect image optics, meaning that the image seen is the right way up and will appear to the viewer as a mirror image. This is ideal for terrestrial as well as astronomical use.
  • Includes 2 eyepieces and a 2x Barlow lens. 35x (70x with the Barlow) for the 20mm eyepiece, and 56x (112x with the Barlow) for the 12.5mm eyepiece.
  • Light weight aluminium legs provide a rigid and stable platform. It is also portable enough to easily move to a different viewing site.

    This is a great starter scope for the budding astronomer. Great view of the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter through the barlow lens.
