TeleVue - Sky Tour Computer
The Sky Tour object locator adds "brains" to your Tele Vue mount. With its exclusive Lorenzin 2000+ database and refinements such as dimmable red light display, backlit button names, 10-character speed-adjustable scrolling display, and advanced "identify" capability, Sky Tour brings the hand-held computer to a new feature/performance level -- a Tele Vue level of convenience and ease of use. When Sky Tour is added to Tele Vue mounts, the total system is simple enough to encourage beginners, yet deep enough for experts to maintain a lifetime of observing enthusiasm.
For the amateur telescope owner, you can purchase the Sky Tour computer and encoders for integration into most any telescope mount. The Sky Tour computer can be initialized and custom calibrated for the following types of mounts: altitude-azimuth, German equatorial, fork mount, and equatorial table.
A collection of interesting and observable double and triple stars, bright and dark nebulae, galaxies, star clusters and colored stars most suited to Tele Vue telescopes.
The 2000+ objects are organized into six catalogs: NGC (New General Catalog), M (Messier), IC (lndex Catalog), ST (Star), NS (Non-Standard), and PL (Planets). For quick reference, an additional FAV (Favorites) catalog is available to store 99 of your favorite objects.
The Sky Tour computer arrives complete with instruction booklet and database guide. Encoder kits for Tele Vue mounts are sold separately and include all the parts, tools and instructions for easy installation. With the optional Eyepiece Caddy Set and Sky Tour Caddy Plate, the computer rides securely with the mount head and avoids encoder wire entanglement. The Tele Vue Gibraltar-series, Panoramic and Tele-Pod mounts ordered pre-installed with Sky Tour include Sky Tour Computer, Encoders, Eyepiece Caddy Set, Sky Tour Caddy Plate and a FREE bonus copy of The Deep Sky which includes a complete star atlas and list of 300 of the finest deep-sky objects.
