Baader ASTF80 AstroSolar Professional Solar Telescope Filter
The Astromaster 102 AZ has an erect image diagonal included which unlike some pure Astronomical telescopes means your images are the right way up and the right way round. So for those rare days (or not so!!) when the Sun is hiding behind the clouds, we have also included RSPB's British Birds Handbook to inspire you to look towards other forms of nature too.
The pan and tilt style AZ tripod is easy to use, and adds to the versitility of this scope making plane spotting and other daytime type observation convenient.
The AstroMaster 102 AZ is a short focus refractor that produces bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn as well as brighter deep sky objects, such as some galaxies, nebulae and star clusters.
To help you on your way to conquering the Night Sky we have also included a Hardback copy of Will Gater's excellent book 'The Practical Astronomer'. This clearly and beautifully illustrated book takes you on a step-by-step journey from the basics of what can be seen with the naked eye, to how you can view more distant objects such as the planets of the solar system, and even galaxies far, far away - all in your own backyard.
