Celestron’s PowerSeekers include a full range of eyepieces plus a 3x Barlow lens that provides an increase in viewing power hundreds of times greater than that of the unaided eye!
It's not just a big telescope. It's a big telescope that goes anywhere. New LightBridge truss-dobs from Meade take down and set up quickly. So you can take one of these massive windows on the universe out to your favorite dark sky locations with ease. LightBridge dobs give you high quality Meade optics, premium components, and ultra portability - all for about the same price as an ordinary tube dob. So get a LightBridge truss-dob. And prepare to cross the universe.Minimize
Diffraction-Limited Optics Meades Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain optics yield pinpoint stellar images over an extremely wide field-of-view with only half the coma of standard Newtonians of the same focal ratio.
Recently upgraded from 60mm to 70mm aperature, Meade's NG70 telescope combines improved light-gathering ability with light-loss-reducing special optical coatings to produce noticeably sharper images of both celestial and terrestrial objects, making for a much better viewing experience. All the major planets except Pluto are clearly visible. The Moon stands out in near three-dimensional detail, revealing craters, mountain ranges, and fault lines. Dozens of external galaxies are visible; and, in our own Milky Way, this telescope displays hundreds of nebulae, star clusters, double and multiple stars, and variable stars.Minimize
