Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can this scope be moved manually without engaging the motor?
Robert C  with this scope can you see saturns rings jupiters belts mars' polar ice caps and the moons of saturn and jupiter?
RICK H  My scope is a 127mm. It is great for viewing Jupiter & moons, Saturn's rings are clear & crisp, and it is very good for lunar viewing with a variable polarizing filter to decrease brightness. I don't have any experience with the 80mm, and I don't know what the focal length of this scope is. However, I considered an 80mm before buying my Explore Scientific 127. In astronomy you will soon learn that there is no perfect scope -- all of them do some things well, but none of them do everything well. Good luck in your pursuit.
Dax C  Does this actually track objects while viewing? or only spot them and then you manually track it?
BENJAMIN M  It tracks them after it finds them. With a good alignment it can track visually for a long time. I set it up at a public star party once and for the 3+ hours we were there it kept the moon dead center. And that was in Alt Az mode. I've been able to get 60 second exposures out of it in Equatorial mode with only a rudimentary alignment. I really enjoy it.
