This is a brand new, factory sealed, telescope: We have found this incredible new brand of quality telescopes and are now making them available for sale directly to the public with a special arrangement with the factory. The TwinStar family of optical instruments is made by one of the largest "private label" optical component fabricators in the world. In fact, this telescope was manufactured in the very same factory that makes optical products for Bushne, Tasc, Knus and many other name brands. While this is nearly the same instrument you may see in a catalog for hundreds of dollars more, by developing the TwinStar brand, the factory is able to sell the same product to us for much, much less. This telescope is brand new and has never been removed from the original factory packaging.
Bundled for Beginners: For those who are just starting out with backyard astronomy, we have included some fantastic items with this telescope. You will receive a copy of Astronomy for Dummies. This is a great reference book and telescope companion. It will teach you the ins and outs of telescope use and basic principals of astronomy. This telescope also comes with a copy of RedShift 7 PC Planetarium Software. This software turns your computer in to a planetarium. It's great for rainy nights or for planning your next telescope observing adventure. You'll also find a laminated map of the Moon and a Planisphere Star Chart to assist you with finding objects in the night sky. You won't find a better package for beginners anywhere else.
Great Value for a Night & Day Scope: Here's the perfect "first telescope" for the space enthusiast. Great for viewing the Moon, Mars, the Rings of Saturn, the Moons of Jupiter and the great Orion Nebulae, there's years of fantastic space viewing with this refractor telescope. Most telescopes in this price range are puny 60mm, but with its large 70mm aperture, you'll get brighter, sharper views of planetary and deep space objects. Plus, this telescope is great for day-time use as well. With powerful magnifications ranging from 35x to a whopping 350x, there's loads of opportunity for bird watching, mountain gazing, whale watching, or just plain snooping around the neighborhood.
Full Color Photograph Assembly Guide: TaxiMarket is the only telescope seller with an online full-color photograph, step-by-step assembly guide. With this easy-to-use guide, you'll be ready to observe the stars without having to fumble through a confusing manual or a complicated assembly diagram. We've made it easy for you to get to the night sky right away! Click here to see a sample of our exclusive online assembly guide!
Great Eyepieces & Accessories: This telescope comes with 3 eyepieces with storage containers, and a Barlow 2x lens. With the Barlow, you can achieve up to 350x magnification of distant objects. Your eyepieces are standard 1.25" diameter eyepieces, so you can always upgrade your viewing experience using standard size telescope eyepieces available everywhere. Your telescope also comes with a dust-free cleaning cloth, a great map of the surface of the moon and a moon filter designed for reducing moon glare and making surface details more clear, and a poster of the solar system.
Aluminum Tripod & Equatorial Mounting: The aluminum tripod is fully adjustable and allows even taller people to observe the stars without having to crouch down in an uncomfortable position. A handy accessory tray on the tripod makes it easy to keep track of extra eyepieces. With the equatorial mounting, the telescope is designed to move in any direction -- making it possible to track the movements of stars as the track across the night sky. Use the declination circle, hour circle and latitude scale in conjunction to quickly locate any celestial body. Thanks to precision worm gears and a substantial counter weight, the telescope can be balanced so that the slightest finger touch turn of the flexi cables will move the telescope in any direction with a smooth, steady motion.
