Ideal No Fuss, Grab-and-Go Telescope for Easy Visual Astronomy as well as Daytime Terrestrial Observations! The STARTRAVEL-102 is a two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractor and a well proven performer for __Rich-Field' views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!).

The elegant, well engineered and easy to use AZ5 Deluxe Alt-Azimuth mount provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow motion cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes.
