Meade's Infinity series telescopes are ideal for anyone looking for an inexpensive introduction to astronomy.
- explore the Moon and planets - discover the lunar craters and mountains, admire Saturn's magnificent rings and observe the four largest moons of Jupiter - as Galileo Galilei once did. But also observe the brighter nebulae, such as the Orion Nebula 1350 light-years away! Countless double stars, such as the beautiful double star Albireo in Cygnus, can also be made out.
- the alt-azimuth mount is intuitive to operate and immediately ready for use. The tripod is also quite light, making the entire system portable.
- delivery includes everything that you will need, especially eyepieces, which allow you to use various magnifications. The 1.25" focuser is a standard size that allows the use of a multitude of other accessories.
This item, included in the accessories, lets you see an upright non-reversed image in the eyepiece - making this telescope, in combination with the alt-azimuth mount, also ideal for nature-watching by day.

This telescope is well suited for an introduction into the exploration of space. A small finder scope makes it easy for researchers to find celestial objects, while three different eyepieces allow for different magnifications. The 90° diagonal mirror together with a continuously adjustable tripod always provide an easy view to advanced explorers and newcomers.
Included as a bonus - AutoStar Suite® Astronomer Edition software on DVD. This Windows operating systems software can show you over 10,000 astronomical objects. You can also use it to plan your observing and even print out star charts using it.
It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.
