This Saxon 767AZ Astronomy Sky and Land Telescope is a refracting telescope - this means it works just like a magnifying glass. The convex glass lens bends light and brings it into focus. This lens is thicker in the middle than towards the edges, this bends the light more at the edge than light coming through the center. This allows all the light to come together at a main focus point - the point of which the image is created. The Saxon 767AZ telescope uses Newtonian engineering which uses mirrors for magnification ans as such, is called a reflector telescope.
The Alt-azimuth mount is a simple two axis mount for supporting and rotating the telescope about two perpendicular axes - one vertical and the other horizontal. The Saxon 767AZ features an accessory tray which allows you to store eyepieces, lens extensions and even a hot drink to hand. It provides quick access to everything you may need during a night observation.
This telescope kit includes the Saxon 767AZ Astronomy Sky and Land Telescope with Barlow Lens, 5x24 finderscope, 4mm eyepiece, 12.5mm eyepiece, 25mm eyepiece, 3x barlow lens, 1.5x erecting eyepiece and a Tripod Accessory Tray Moon & Star Chart.
The telescope will allow you to see the rings of Saturn, large, bright nebulae, craters on the moon and the four Galilean moons depending on light pollution and atmospheric conditions. It is always adviseable as a beginner, when first using a telescope, to set it up using land-based objects, so that the focussing becomes familiar. Once that has been acheived, then a bright night sky with a full moon is the best way to start viewing, as the telescope can be trained on the moon and other astronomical objects in relation to it. We have written a guide to Understanding Astro Telescopes, which may be helpful.
