Two Tools in One Thanks to Photoflex s innovative design and strict manufacturing standards, Litediscs are the best collapsible reflectors in the business. Litedisc frames are double-riveted to provide an extremely flat surface for even light reflection. Its high-quality gold and silver fabrics are now double-laminated, increasing the efficiency and durability of the reflectors. Besides withstanding the rigors of daily use, Litediscs provide quick and easy set-up, collapse to one-third of its open size and come complete with their own protective carry bag. As for versatility, Litediscs feature two different fabric colors so you can create different reflections just by flipping them over. Best of all, Calumet Litediscs are now backed by a five-year warranty!
Bushnell leads the industry with its high quality scopes and view finders. Trusted by the world over, whether you're an avid Huntsman, military, or recreational user, Bushnell will fit the mold for everything.
Perfect for the amateur astronomer, for an amazing look at our closet celestial neighbors. The Tasco Luminova 660x is a good 60mm beginners telescope, complete with all the accessories you'll need to study Lunar craters, Jupiter's moons, and even the rings of Saturn. The package includes a lightweight tripod, three 1.25-inch eyepieces (H25, H12.5, and SR4), two barlow lenses, a Moon filter, a Solar projection screen, and even a program disk that turns your computer into a desktop planetarium. The Alt-Azimuth tripod included with the Tasco Luminova package is light and easy to use, but it doesn't track stars and planets as the Earth rotates. It's best to use the low power 25mm eyepiece to find your target, then use a high power lens to zoom in for a closer look. While "more power" is a good advertising slogan, I have more fun with this little telescope by keeping the power down. In fact, the best upgrade for this telescope is a low power Celestron 25mm E-Lux eyepiece (about 32x). The Celestron E-lux eyepiece has a much wider field of view than the standard equipment H25 eyepiece. A wider view means the Moon remains visible nearly twice as long, I see more than twice as many Milky Way stars at one time, and it's easier to find deep space objects like the Orion Nebula and the Andromeda Galaxy! As a general rule, 60mm telescopes perform best at magnifications of 120x or less. With a 6mm E-Lux eyepiece (133x) for example, I can actually see Saturn's rings or the pine needles on a distant tree branch more clearly than I can using Tasco's economy-grade high power eyepieces and barlows. The high power 400x and 660x images are basically useless because they are dim, fuzzy and hard to focus. Overall the Tasco Luminova 660x is a good beginners telescope with a generous accessory package. One of its virtues is that it can be easily upgraded with better eyepieces. For a little more money, the Nexstar 60 GT is a 60mm telescope complete with a computerized tracking system. In this price range, also take a look at Celestron's...
Perfect for the amateur astronomer, for an amazing look at our closet celestial neighbors. Tasco's Luminova 675 is an affordable 60mm refractor telescope on a lightweight equatorial mount. The complete accessory package includes three 1.25" eyepieces (H25, H12.5, and SR4), a mirror diagonal, a moon filter, a solar projection screen, and even a program disk that turns your computer into a desktop planetarium. For the more advanced observer, an equatorial mount makes it easy to track the moon or a planet at higher magnifications. Simply point the polar axis at Polaris, the North Star, and the telescope will track planets with a simple turn of the slow motion knob. In practice, however, the light weight equatorial mount has its drawbacks. This telescope is tall enough that it becomes wobbly and difficult to focus at high power. (Young astronomers might prefer a simpler alt-azimuth telescope, such as Celestron's Firstscope 60 AZ.) The standard equipment lenses and 3x barlow can be combined for a range of magnification from 36x with the H25 eyepiece all the way up to 625x by combining the SR4 eyepiece with the 3x barlow. Realistically, I get the best views of Saturn's rings at 120x using my own 7.5mm eyepiece. An optical effect called diffraction shows up as little rings around the stars, and this limits the useful magnification of any telescope. With the Luminova 675, when I use magnifications over 120x bright stars no longer focus to sharp points, they look more like little bulls-eyes. The generous accessory package included with the Luminova 675 includes two Huygenian or H- type eyepieces. Unfortunately, these are an old fashioned design with 27 degrees apparent field of view, about half the field of more modern Plossl and MA designs. The narrow field means that some of my favorite deep space objects like the Pleiades and the Double Cluster don't quite fit, even with the low power eyepiece. –Jeff Phillips Pros: Good planet views up to 120x Complete accessory package Low maintenance design Cons: Narrow...
It's no surprise that the eyepieces in our Sirius Plossl line are our best-selling telescope eyepieces. Quality this good usually costs a lot more. Offering a wide 52 degree apparent field of view, this 10mm Orion Sirius Plossl Telescope Eyepiece provides extremely sharp images of impressively high contrast. It's ideal for all types of telescopes: reflector, refractor, and catadioptric. The Plossl 4-element design is renowned for its outstanding performance, and has become the standard by which all other telescope eyepieces are judged. The Sirius Plossl optical system is multi-coated for excellent light transmission and bright views. Lens edges are blackened to reduce scattering of stray light and maximize contrast. The lenses are mounted in black-anodized aluminum housings with a 1.25 inch-diameter chrome-plated brass barrel for durability and precision fit. The barrel is internally threaded to accept standard telescope filters. The built-in rubber eye guard enhances viewing by helping to block out ambient light and position the eye. This 10mm Orion Sirius Plossl Eyepiece is a great, moderately high power ocular for observing small planetary nebulas and globular star clusters, as well as for planetary probing when seeing conditions don't permit higher magnifications.
