The Antares 511AZ is a Newtonian Reflector Telescope with an aperture of 4.5 inches and a focal length of 500 mm. This product is provided on an Azimuth-Elevation Mount which is manually operated. It has two large knobs, which allow you to loosen or secure the axes. In so doing, you can move the telescope in the Azimuth direction (or left/right), as well as the Elevation direction (or up/down).
This 511AZ Newtonian Reflector Telescope from Antares is mounted on a clever U-Channel component which is made high enough to allow for movement of the Newtonian telescope over a wide range of Elevation angles including pointing it to the Zenith. It will be easy to point this telescope to many of your favorite celestial objects, especially when using the included bonus 7 x 40 Right Angle Finder to help you locate the objects.
This 511AZ Newtonian/Azimuth-Elevation telescope from Antares is on an aluminum adjustable tripod with an accessory tray included. It also comes with a 14 mm 90 Degree apparent field eyepiece, a 3x Fully Multicoated Barlow lens, and a bonus 7 x 40 Right Angle Finder
What makes this telescope easy to use for adults and kids is that you can take it out of the box and use it immediately. It comes fully assembled and ready to use.
Bonus # 1: Most beginner telescopes come with a straight through finderscope or red dot which can be more difficult to use. Being able to easily locate objects easily and comfortably without straining your neck is key to the included right angle finder.
Bonus # 2: Get the best views of the planet Mars with the included Antares #56 Dark Green Filter.
