Brand new Meade Terra Star 60 - 60mm Land & Sky Telescope. Includes carry bag and Astronomy software on DVD.
The Meade Terra Star 60 60mm refracting telescope is an excellent first telescope for the beginning astronomer or the casual observer of land or sky. Supplied complete with two eyepieces, a fine achromatic objective lens, a fully adjustable aluminum tripod, the Terra Star 60 easily surpasses commonly available, lower-quality introductory telescopes. In conjunction with the single-arm mount are precision manual slow-motion controls on each axis, to permit smooth telescope motion. Study Saturn and its ring system; the primary cloud belts of Jupiter as well as its four major satellites; the Moonlike phases of Mercury and Venus; prominent features on Mars; and the starlike images of the distant Uranus and Neptune. The Moon stands out in stark, almost three-dimensional detail: craters, mountain ranges, and fault lines. You'll be able to see hundreds of nebulae, star clusters, double and multiple stars, and variable stars in our galaxy, plus dozens of other galaxies as well.

View Earth and Sky Objects
Refractors are a favorite of amateur astronomers, providing the most light-gathering ability for the investment. This type of telescope is perfect of observing the Moon and planets like Saturn and Jupiter in detail. You can also view deep space objects like the Great Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy. Refractors are also ideal for viewing distant objects around us. Use this telescope to study, in detail, feathers on birds living in your backyard.
