|Marketing Information:||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-ASTR and 114EQ-AR 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.
