With its 6” (f/8) optics, this Newtonian reflector is well suited for deep-space viewing. Open clusters and various nebulae take on a brighter image when viewed through this telescope than when compared to lower aperture instruments. When it comes to the solar system, its large aperture gives high-definition views of the planets and the moon at high power. The electric motor enables the telescope to track objects as they move across the sky.
This telescope is in excellent condition. It has not been used very much, and the optics are in excellent condition.
