View the moons of Saturn, the rings of Jupiter and much more. The Carson® Optics RP-100 Red Planet Series 35x-87.5x Telescope... your ticket to the cosmos!
First invented in the 1660s by Sir Isaac himself, Newtonian reflector-style Telescopes like this one are very popular with amateur stargazers. They're affordable, portable, boast a wide field of view and are free of the chromatic distortion you can get with refracting telescopes.
Featuring superior, fully-coated optics, a high-quality heavy-duty aluminum tripod and easy U-Mount, the RP-100 is a great "launching pad" for newcomers to the night sky, young and old. "Setting circles" allow you to dial-in coordinates similar to "latitude and longitude" to find specific stars, planets and constellations.
