All you science and astronomy nuts out there, pay attention, this detailed video tutorial series will tell you everything you need to know about using the Meade EQ Series Telescope to ogle the universe.
LARGE APERTURE MANUAL TELESCOPES
Because the earth rotates once on its axis every 24 hours, celestial objects move rapidly through the telescopic field, particularly at higher powers. The equatorial mount of both the Meade 114EQ-AST and 114EQ-A greatly facilitates object tracking, simply by manually turning one or both of the control cables.
The large 114mm-diameter mirror of these models gathers 361% more light than 60mm telescopes. Fainter, more distant objects can be seen in far greater detail. The beginning amateur who intends to use a manual telescope on a regular basis will find the equatorial mount to be a valuable investment.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE MANUAL TELESCOPE
This large aperture 80mm diameter telescope with deluxe equatorial mount provides contrast-rich, high-resolution images of Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon and many deep-space objects, as well as landmarks and nature.
The Meade 80EQ-A permits more advanced study than smaller telescopes and enables observation of the Cassini Division in Saturn's rings. Jupiter's surface now takes on added detail as the cloud belt begins to show their essential structure, and transits of the planet's satellites across the planetary disk may now be seen. In deep-space, open star clusters, such as the Pleiades (M45) in Taurus, display hundreds of stars in one telescopic field of view.
