Meade Polaris 80 mm f/11.3 Doublet Refracting Telescope


The Polaris 80 mm f/11.3 Doublet Refracting Telescope from Meade Instruments is an excellent beginner's instrument and is designed to observe objects in the sky. It can be your personal window to the universe allowing you to see bright galaxies, planets, stars and more.

The Polaris comes complete with everything you need to view the wonders of the night sky the first time out.

The three-included eyepieces provide low, medium and high powered magnification for viewing a wide range of objects (Moon, planets, or land) delivering bright and detailed images.

AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software on DVD software will help you learn more about the night sky. It displays more than 10,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies, and nebulae. You can print out star charts and even plan your observing session.
