|Description:||The NG-60A Jupiter replaces a telescope--also called Jupiter--which was identical to legions of Tasco, Jason, and Simmons horrors. The redesigned model is also available as the NGC-60A with a manual go-to system like Meade's Magellan.|
The Meade NGC-60 telescope is a high performance altazimuth refractor ideally suited to the beginning observer. The rings of Saturn, cloud belts of Jupiter, Moon craters, and dozens of deep-space galaxies and nebulae are only the beginning of what can be observed through this telescope.
NGC Computer Control System with manual GOTO capability!
The standard equipment NGC computer controller permits fast and easy location of more than 1400 celestial objects: just choose the object from the computer's database, and follow the directions on the LCD to efficiently slew (or move) the telescope to place the object in the telescope's field of view. The sophisticated mount features slow motion controls on each axis for smooth object tracking.
Plus manual GOTO capability to any astronomical object of know coordinates
Digital readouts of telescope position
Stores up to 14 user-defined objects
