The SIGETA StarWalk 80/800 AZ mirror telescope of Newton's construction - an instrument offering interesting planetary observing, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the lunar surface and enabling exploration of many other cosmic objects. Due to its simple construction and great combination of optical features and price, this model will appeal to both children and adults as well.
One of the characteristics of this model is a ratio between the diameter of the main mirror - 80 mm and the focal length - 800 mm. These parameters will enable a sufficiently large magnification (maximum usable value - 160x) without losing brightness of the image. The kit includes a pair of 20mm (40x magnification) and 6mm (133x magnification) coated eyepieces. The addition to this set is a high quality 3x Barlow lens giving a magnified image and a 3x20 optical eyefinder making focusing the telescope to astronomical objects easier.
The azimuthal mounting on which the telescope is installed is very user-friendly and very easy to set up. The infinite height-adjustment mechanism helps in bringing the telescope to bear on the object. The steel tripod is height adjustable and the retractable telescope tips are rubber coated for a secure hold on the surface. The kit features a metal accessory tray with recessed storage for eyepieces.
The telescope's exceptional optical properties, advanced equipment and affordable price make it one of the best candidates for studying astronomy and exploring the cosmos.
