Calling all the astronomy types here…
I’ve found the following telescope for sale on Ebay and need advice on whether it’s worth getting or not.
The details are:
* Tasco 375x Astro 112mm Reflector
* Model 302911 375x Astronomical reflector
* Magnification: 25x 75x 125x 375x
* Objective Aperture: 112mm
* Focal Length: 500mm
* Mount: Full Equatorial with Altitude Azimuth and Hour circles
* Trackers: 2x manual flexible controls
* Eyepieces: 20mm, 4mm Huygenian type.
* Full size adjustable wooden tripod
* 3x Barlow Lens
* 5x25 Finderscope
* Accessory bracket to hold 5 x optics
* Can be adapted to fit standard SLR cameras by using an optional camera adapter tube (#6660) and a T-mount.
* Galaxsee Skywatch Software CD-ROM
* Star Maps, Moon Maps and Astro guide
* 10 years Manufacturers warranty
Are there any extras I should consider getting straight away? I’ve seen someone mention the Huygenian eyepieces aren’t very good.
Thanks in advance,
