Meade’s StarPro AZ™ is the perfect scope for the novice astronomer seeking to explore the universe! The StarPro AZ™ Series consists of refractor telescopes and are available in (4) different apertures including: 70mm, 80mm, 90mm & 102mm. Each model features a newly designed single-arm, alt-azimuth mount with slow motion control cables on both axes; with this, your observering experience will be a breeze! These telescopes also feature a Vixen-style dovetail receiver, giving you the ability to switch out a variety of different optical tubes to your liking. Also, each optical tube offered with the StarPro AZ™ includes fully-coated optics resulting in bright, clear images of the Moon, planets, nebulae, and more!
The focuser is of the larger 2" format. With an optional 2" diagonal and 2" eyepiece of longer focal length, this telescope becomes a fine Rich Field Telescope (RFT). Wide field sweeping becomes a most enjoyable way to take in that largest of all the galaxies--the Milky Way, our home. Large, nearby star clusters and stellar associations, as well as numerous large emission and dark nebulae that narrow field telescopes cannot fully encompass will be appreciated in the context of their surroundings.
Easily organize your eyepieces with the integrated accessory holder, located on the sturdy tripod. As a bonus, the StarPro AZ™ comes with an included Smart Phone Adapter that allows you to take images of the night sky through the eyepiece of your telescope! Also included is the AutoStar Suite® Astronomer Edition Software on DVD to help you learn about objects in the night sky.
The StarPro AZ™ is an easy-to-use, portable telescope, for the on-the-go astronomer. If you’re just starting in Astronomy and want to take awesome images of the Moon (and more) with your phone to share with your friends and family on Social Media, Meade’s StarPro AZ™ will not disappoint.
