The Discovery Spark 506 AZ telescope with a knowledge book is an entry-level achromatic refractor. It is easy to master. It is also suitable for the first experiments in astronomy as well as for observing the Moon. In addition to the practical application, you will be able to expand your existing theoretical knowledge! The telescope comes with a colorful book of knowledge about space. During the day, the telescope may be easily converted into a spotting scope to study natural landscapes and distant terrestrial objects.
The optics are made of glass, so the telescope produces clear, bright images. The achromatic optical scheme and anti-reflective coating of the lenses improve the image quality, eradicating aberrations. A standard alt-azimuth mount is used for pointing the telescope, which can be mastered by a user at any skill level. The mount is installed on a sturdy aluminum tripod that is adjustable. This allows you to find a comfortable position for stargazing for everyone in the family.
One of the advantages of the Discovery Spark 506 AZ is a full set of accessories. In addition to the telescope, there are two eyepieces with different focal lengths, a 3x Barlow lens, and other accessories in a colorful gift box. The “Space. Non-empty emptiness” illustrated knowledge book will give aspiring space explorers answers to many questions and provide interesting facts about celestial bodies.
