This telescope is powerful enough to show you the craters of the Moon, the major planets, and many more stars that you could see with the naked eye.
It comes with its own backpack and aluminum tripod so all in all it’s easy to transport to remote locations. The tripod is extendable, so you can use it standing, sitting, or lying depending on the surface and where you are situated. The backpack has room for all the accessories too.
You could take this telescope with you on long walks into national parks for views of the flora, fauna, and archaeological and historical features in the distance.
Take your Orion GoScope II away with you on holiday and set it up on the balcony of your hotel and you’ll be able to zoom in on all the activity on the sea; marine activity, sailing, wildlife, or view the architecture of distant buildings in urban areas.
This refracting telescope is also ideal for bird watchers. On daytime trips into the country you can carry this on your back into nature reserves and marshlands, or just position it at home and watch birds feed in the garden.
Professionals who may need a transportable telescope for landscape views might want to consider this model too.
Included in the box is a map of the Moon, and a DVD containing some software and an astronomy documentary. Supplied by Orion, a name with a strong reputation for supplying refractor telescopes, this model will keep you and your children amused and interested for years to come.
