Found 22nd Mar 2007
Less tahn half price.

At 75 times magnification, the telescope and monitor performs at 10 times the power of traditional binoculars!

Portable enough to use as a land spotting scope in the office or as an Astro-Scope grazer at home.

Complete with fully functional black and white monitor so you can have friends or family gather around for collective viewing.

Includes foldaway alloy tripod and full instructions for use.

Requires 1 x 9V battery and 10 x C batteries (not supplied).

Thanks stepehnburton

This is a clearance item & hence limited stock.

Requires 1 x 9V battery and 10 x C batteries



Worth noting unless you have lots of them laying around.

Great price, but there will be continuous outlay for batteries, unless it will take an adapter (does not mention this possibility).

Think I have correctly ripped these technical details from an auction for the same item (incorrect spelling remains);

14" B&W TV SET WITH BUILT-IN RADIO/ALARM
AC/DC ADAPTOR
SPACE MAP
RED DOT FINDER/DIAGNOL VIEWER.
INTERCHARGEBLE 3 x EYE PIECES
ALUMINIUM TRIPOD
INSTURCTION MANUEL

OBJECTIVE LENS............... Dia. 50mm
FOCAL LENGTH..............300mm
EYEPICE.............4mm, 12.5mm, 20mm
RED DOT FINDER...........1x
ERECTING EYE PIECE..........1.5x
POWER CONSUMPTION .............3W
MAXIMUM MAGNIFICATION.........75x

Does anyone know whether this is a reasonable beginner/intermediate telescope for the money?

I got one for my son 2 weeks ago and he seems very happy with it...

You need the batteries for the tv if you want to put your view on the screen and dont have electricity handy but it does come with an ac adaptor for the mains.

He has been sitting in his sisters playhouse looking at the sky for a few nights and hasnt complained as yet...

I think you can get cheaper ones but as this comes with a tv/radio its a good price...

If your a serious star gazer this is not going to be any good...Id spend another £100+ and get a more specialised one...

But for kids its great!...
