    Product Description

    If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky

    The AstroMaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.

    "Good stuff...Great starter kit...I cannot see the Jovian Rings, but as I read one requires a rather LARGE telescope to be able to see them....While there are certainly higher quality eyepieces available, these give you excellent bang for the buck for any sub-$500 telescope, and would suffice for sub-$1000 scopes."
