Perfect telescope kit for the serious beginner or intermediate observer!
This Meade DS-114EC telescope has only been used twice. Long a favorite of amateur astronomers, the DS-114EC offers a large aperture, high quality optics, and easy push-button electronic operation. It features improved mounting for precise, smooth altitude and azimuth movements, high-resolution, multicoated primary and secondary mirrors free of the optical zones and irregularities often found on optics of lesser quality, and the Meade electronic hand-held controller, which allows for four-speed push-button operation and easy object location and tracking. Also includes Meade's StarNavigator software, which displays more than 10,000 celestial objects.
The revolutionary Meade #497 Autostar Controller plugs directly into DS-114EC control panel. After quick set up, simply enter any of 14,000 objects into the Autostar display and press "Go To." The telescope automatically locates and centers the object, while Autostar tracks the object across the sky.
Included in this kit: Meade DS-114EC Telescope, #492 Dual-Motor Electronic Controller with Coil Cord, 9 and 25mm Eyepieces, 6x30mm viewfinder, 10 battery D-cell holder, StarNavigator Software, accessory Meade 126 2x multi-coated Barlow Lens, #497 Autostar Controller and User's Manuals, full-length, adjustable heavy-duty aluminum tripod with accessory shelf (minor blemish on one leg).
