Product description

This telescope is also available, together with accessories, in a beginners set.

This telescope is ideal for easily getting started in amateur astronomy. A super gift for children or adults, and excellent value for money!


The instrument is simple to understand and quick to assemble without any tools needed, much along the lines of: 'set up, insert eyepiece, observe'!

For the uncomplicated début in the amateur astronomy.

The optics of the 60/700 lens telescope offers details concerning the observation of the large planets Saturn, Jupiter and Mars and shows (in case of positive visual conditions) well-known Deep Sky objects like the Andromeda Galaxy. It´ s also possible to realize interesting nature observations in daylight with a reversal lens.

Insert the eyepiece!

The AZ-1 Mount:

This mount is very popular with beginners in astronomy as it is very simple to operate. The entire telescope is very easy to move around in both azimuth and elevation. For beginners, it has the advantage that they do not have to worry about first aligning the telescope before use. Setting up the telescope is hence very quick and straightforward: Simply erect the tripod and mount, attach the telescope to it, and you are ready to go! The attitude can be locked in both axes so that, once found, objects remain in the field of view. There is also a fine adjuster for moving the tube precisely in elevation. The mount is attached to a height-adjustable aluminium tripod.


Included in delivery of the mount:

  • AZ-1altazimuth mount
  • robust aluminium tripod (height-adjustable from 71cm to 121cm)
  • accessory tray

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

Our expert comment:

This telescope is quite suitable for the first fun exploration of the night sky. Observing the moon is an impressive experience even in a small instrument such as this. The mount also allows terrestrial observing. But you should not expect high performance from a telescope in this price bracket.

A note regarding magnification: Similar telescopes are advertised in many places with magnifications of over 300X or even 600X. Any telescope can theoretically reach these magnifications, but you will not be able to see anything - everything will be blurred! The maximum useful magnification is that at which objects can still just be sharply imaged.

This telescope in an excellent choice for children, but young people of over 10 years of age and adults will definitely get more pleasure out of a Newtonian telescope such as the Omegon 114/900 EQ-1.

It is a good idea to get some idea of how to orient yourself in the night sky by first reading some books on the subject. There are various books available which tell you how to get better acquainted with the night sky.
