PowerSeeker 127EQ reflector type binoculars (Newton), with a primary mirror diameter of 127mm, a focal length of 1000mm and an aperture of f / 8.
The Powerseker Mirror (Newtonian) telescopes are inexpensive, affordable telescopes for beginning or intermediate amateur astronomers. They feature very good, fully coated multi-layer optics and easy and quick installation in minutes, where you do not need to use any tools. The low weight of the device and a light, height-adjustable aluminum tripod allow you to take your binoculars with you on trips or observations in nature away from home.
When used under a dark sky, with these telescopes you can see all 110 objects of the Messier catalog, detailed views of the lunar surface, planets and even more distant ones, such as Uranus and Neptune, you will see as disks rather than just points of light. The purchase includes the "The SkyX" Planetarium Software CD-ROM, which will help you find and identify many of them.
High quality optical performance is achieved while respecting the highest (300x) and lowest (18x) useful magnification. The telescope comes with two Plössl eyepieces, 20mm (50x magnification) and 4mm (250x magnification) and a Barlow 3x lens, which triples the possibilities of optics, but at such a magnification you must already count on lower image quality.
Powerseeker EQ are models with parallactic (equatorial) mounting, offering fine and precise telescope adjustment. This is a traditional assembly of astronomical telescopes, which is oriented in the direction of the Earth's axes. The telescope can describe the arcuate motion of celestial bodies in the sky, when you set the Moon to the field of view of the telescope, for example, just rotate the telescope around one axis and you will still see the object you are observing in the field of view of the telescope.
All PowerSeeker models can also be used for ground monitoring.
