Details

The AstroMaster 76EQ Telescope is a 76mm Newtonian reflector optical tube mounted on an equatorial mount. It is very easy to set up just like the rest of the Astromaster series, consisting of an optical tube, german equatorial mount, and accessory tray. Simply mount the optical tube on the dovetail connection and snap the accessory tray and the telescope is set up! No additional tools are needed. The equatorial mount is equipped with setting circles for right ascension and declination adjustment as well as a permanent mounted StarPointer finderscope. With the light gathering power of a Newtonian reflector, excellent detail of the lunar surfaces of the moon, cloud bands of Jupiter and rings of Saturn and even some brighter deep sky objects like the Hercules Globular Cluster and Orion Nebula will look quite impressive for the money. The two included eyepieces with this telescope are 10mm and 20mm focal lengths resulting in magnifications of 35x and 70x. For instance, Jupiter will look larger will more detail through 10mm eyepiece but other planets and objects may not need the high magnification to show detail. The SkyX First Light Edition Astronomy Software is also included with a celestial database of 10,000 objects! Beginner astronomers will have no issue learning their night sky.

Product Series

If you’re looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky. The AstroMaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.
