What can you see with a 525x telescope?
This astronomical telescope comes with high-quality objective lenses to deliver sharp images of the night sky. Look up for the Stars, the Moon, the planets Jupiter, Saturn and more! The metal tripod is featured with slow motion control rod for easy vertical micro-adjustment.
Is a 50x telescope good?
The maximum useful magnification for any telescope is 50x (50 times) the aperture in inches. For example, a telescope with a 3-inch main lens or mirror will have a maximum useful magnification of 3 x 50 = 150x (150 times). Most backyard telescopes are between 50x and 100x.
What’s the difference between a reflector and refractor telescope?
Refractor telescopes use specialized lenses that make them a favorite for deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae. Reflector telescopes are more popular with larger and brighter objects like the Moon and planets because they use mirrors that provide more sensitivity to all wavelengths.
What magnification do I need to see Saturn’s rings?
The rings of Saturn should be visible in even the smallest telescope at 25x [magnified by 25 times]. A good 3-inch scope at 50x [magnified by 50 times] can show them as a separate structure detached on all sides from the ball of the planet.
What can you see with a cheap telescope?
Fabulous sights through a cheap telescope
- Saturn. The rings are nearly always visible, except maybe when they are aligned exactly side on to the earth.
- The Orion Nebula.
- The Carinae Nebula.
- Alpha Centauri.
- The Moon.
- The Jewel Box.
Why can’t I see out of my telescope?
If you are unable to find objects while using your telescope, you will need to make sure the finderscope is aligned with the telescope. The finderscope is the small scope attached near the rear of the telescope just above the eyepiece holder. This is best done when the scope is first set up.
How do you focus a Vivitar telescope?
Insert the 60x eyepiece into the telescope’s focuser to study the object at higher magnification. Adjust the focus knob on the focuser until the object appears sharp in the eyepiece. Insert the 120x eyepiece into the focuser to observe the object at even higher magnification. Adjust the focus knob to sharpen the image.
