This is a small accessory pack put together by us to compiment first time GOTO telescopes. The kit comes with a 12v mains power supply, a 40mm wide angle super plossl eyepiece, an Antares ND25 moon filter and a Philip's Planisphere to find objects and learn about the sky. Ideal for scopes such as the Celestron SLT, Celestron SE and the Skywatcher GOTO telescopes.
All details can be found below on the inidividual items. Save money by buying this great kit.
RVO 12v Power Supply:
A decent power supply is key for computerized GOTO telescopes. This is a 2.5 amp 60 watt regulated 12v mains supply so it will suit all GOTO telescopes no matter what size. It's nice and compact design means you won't have large cumbersome power units in the way of your equipment.
Available for both Celestron/Skywatcher and Meade telescopes. Will also fit other brands of telescope. Please contact us for more compatibility queries.
Skywatcher 40mm Super Plossl Eyepiece:
These standard 1.25"/31.7mm eyepieces set high performance standards for modern telescope oculars. The proven 4-element Plossl designs display edge-to-edge pinpoint imaging across their panoramic 52º fields. Utilisation of top quality optical glass, superior multi-layer coatings and edge-blackened elements deliver superb high contrast images.
'SP-Series' eyepieces minimise spherical aberration, distortion, astigmatism and off-axis colour, whilst their oversized optical elements afford the observer luxurious eye relief. Stray light is eliminated by the fold back rubber eyecups, standard with every 'SP-Series' eyepiece, and all but the lightest three models feature the security of rubber grips. Whether observing fine planetary detail or deep space wonder, whether your telescope is a Newtonian, Refractor or Catadioptric, let the high performance imaging of 'SP-Series' eyepieces unlock its potential !!
Antares ND25 Moon Filter:
A must have accessory for lunar observing
Because the moon is so bright, this filter is used to dull the image down to make it acceptable to look at. Screws onto all 1.25" eyepieces. High grade glass, dual coated optics.
Invaluable for both beginners and advanced observers, Philip's Planisphere (Latitude 51.5 North) is a practical hour-by-hour tracker of the stars and constellations, designed for use anywhere in Britain and Ireland, Northern Europe, Northern USA and Canada. Turn the oval panel to the required date and time to reveal the whole sky visible from your location.The map, by the well-known celestial cartographer Wil Tirion, shows stars down to magnitude 5, plus several deep-sky objects, such as the Pleiades, the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) and the Orion Nebula (M42). Because the planets move round the Sun, their positions in the sky are constantly changing and they cannot be marked permanently on the map; however, the back of the planisphere has tables giving the positions of Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn for every month until 2020.The planisphere is supplied in a full-colour wallet that contains illustrated step-by-step instructions for how to use the planisphere, how to locate planets, and how to work out the time of sunrise or sunset for any day of the year. It explains all the details that can be seen on the map - the magnitudes of stars, the ecliptic and the celestial coordinates. In addition, the section 'Exploring the skies, season by season' introduces the novice astronomer to the principal celestial objects visible at different times of the year. Major constellations are used as signposts to navigate the night sky, locating hard-to-find stars and some fascinating deep-sky objects. The movement of the stars is also explained.
