Product Description

Amazon.com

A nice choice for budding backyard astronomers who want to get a closer look at the night sky, the Meade Jupiter 60AZ-MF telescope features a 60mm, two-element objective lens that makes faraway celestial objects appear razor sharp. The three eyepieces, meanwhile (SR4mm, H12.5mm, and H25mm), cover a host of observational conditions, with variations to cover how much eye relief you need, the desired field of view, and the sky's current outlook. The focal length of 700mm (with an f/11 ratio) isn't as robust as many higher-powered telescopes, but is still solid for an entry-level unit. All of this on a fully adjustable hardwood tripod (with an accessory tray) that gives you a stable viewing platform to prevent excessive vibration--the bane of telescopes everywhere. Other details unique to the 60AZ-MF include yoke-style mounting, a 5x24mm viewfinder (with a six-point bracket), and an Altazimuth optical refractor design.

The telescope also comes with Meade's StarLocator software, which displays more than 10,000 astronomical objects on your PC screen. The application offers an ideal way to virtually explore the heavens before looking through the telescope's eyepiece and finding the real planets, galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. The software also includes detailed star charts for printing, along with easy-to-use Microsoft Windows pulldown menus and online help.

Rounding out the package is a pair of 4x30mm binoculars for hauling along to sporting events, concerts, hikes, and plays. The binoculars offer a field of view of 217 feet, coated lenses, and 19mm of eye relief. They also focus as close as 9 feet and weigh a mere 8.3 ounces, making them great travel companions.

The Jupiter 60AZ-MF telescope measures 28 inches long and 3.5 inches in diameter and comes with a one-year warranty.

I bought this telescope set for my granddaughter and it was the best gift she received this year...she loves using all of the tools in the kit. It did what I hoped, and sparked an interest in the skies and science in general.

given the price, you really shouldn't complain too much. it is not steady enough for gazing the stars. you have to hold the mount all the time during the watch, otherwise you will lose what you are seeing.

No spare screws provided. Threads for the screws got loosen. So now i am unable to focus properly. There is small design flaw.
