This Dobson telescope from National Geographic is a compact reflective telescope. It makes it easy and fun to discover the universe. The reflective lens with a diameter of 76 millimeter makes it possible to observe stars and planets which are relatively nearby earth. This makes the National Geographic 76/350 ideal for children and the novice astronomer. Saturn and Jupiter for instance are clearly visible, so are other planets and the craters of the moon.
Observe without vibrations
Due to the solid, low mount of the National Geographic Dobson telescope observations can be done without vibrations. This makes it possible to place the telescope for instance on your table and do observations from there. The telescope comes with an astronomer software-package. This will help you explore the starry sky.
A moon filter and Barlow-lens are included
The National Geographic 76/350 telescope is equipped with a Barlow-lens (2x) and a moon filter. Thereby you will get two eyepieces: a 6 millimeter diameter eyepiece and a 20 millimeter eyepiece. The focal length of this telescope is 350 millimeter. This results in a maximum magnification of 152 times.
