Meade Telescope Bag for Polaris Refractor Telescopes - 616001
Meade Polaris 80mm German Equatorial Refractor Telescope
Meade's new Polaris telescopes offer a sleek, streamlined way to observe celestial objects. This 80mm refractor telescope is perfect for beginners, plus it includes everything you need for a great night of observing. The stable German equatorial mount features slow motion controls so you can precisely track celestial objects like the Orion Nebula or Pleiades Star Cluster as they appear to drift across the sky. Unlike altazimuth mounts, your Polaris mount is aligned to the celestial pole and your precise latitude, so you can follow objects exactly as they move overhead.
Meade has applied its UHTC coatings to all air-to-glass surfaces on the Polaris telescope. That means you'll get enhanced light transmission for bright, sharp, detailed views of the Moon's craters, rings of Saturn, moons of Jupiter, and beyond. Take this small-but-mighty telescope to a dark sky location and you'll see all the best celestial objects.
Not sure where to begin? Meade has also included their proprietary AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition software. You can print your own customized star maps for the exact time, date, and location where you'll be observing. Plus, you can view detailed information on more than 10,000 objects.
Once you've decided what to observe, the red dot finderscope makes it easy to center your target. Then, view it in any of the three included eyepieces. You'll get high (6.3mm), medium (9mm), and low power (25mm) eyepieces, plus a 2x Barlow lens that doubles the power of each one! That means you'll always have the right type of eyepiece for viewing just about any object. It's a superior value not usually found in telescopes at this price point. A smooth rack and pinion focuser makes getting optimal sharp views quick and easy.
With the Polaris telescope, you and your family will be exploring the cosmos in no time. The night sky awaits!
