114LCM COMPUTERIZED TELESCOPE 

DESCRIPTION

 

Get the same star locating technology found on our observatory-grade telescopes at a price that fits your family’s budget with the 114LCM.

Locates objects for you! Leave the star maps at home; 114 LCM computerized telescopes can locate thousands of celestial objects for you automatically. To get started, just perform our simple SkyAlign alignment procedure by centering any three bright objects in your telescope’s eyepiece. From there, your LCM can calculate the time, date, and location and orient itself with the night sky.

Browse the hand control’s database and select any star, planet, galaxy, or nebulae in the database. Within seconds, your LCM centers it in the eyepiece and tracks it as it moves across the sky. Looking for something new to observe? Press the Sky Tour button and your LCM generates a list of the best celestial objects currently visible.
