telescope is a
Meade LX200 12" Schmidt-Cassegrain. One of the nice things
about this telescope is the "goto" feature. There
is a datebase of over 64,000 targets in the keypad and entering the
coordinates of an object will persuade the telescope to point at and
track that object.
Above is a look at the eyepieces and other accessories we use with the Meade telescope. Taking pride of place is the recently acquired William Optics binoviewer eyepiece (which is threatening to render all our other eyepieces obsolete...) . We also have an off-axis solar filter for observing sunspot activity when it is sunny.
This is the 90 mm telescope.
Rounding out the optical aids is a variety of binoculars ranging from 7x35 to 10x40
