OPT is happy to present Meade's new Eclipseview 114mm Reflecting Telescope, the perfect companion for safely viewing the upcoming 2017 Solar Eclipse! Designed to be the perfect portable solar telescope in preparation for the upcoming eclipse, this high quality reflector isn't just for solar viewing. The inbuilt solar filter is removable, meaning that once the sun has set you can simply slot out the filter and shift gears to nighttime astronomy with all possible ease and simplicity. This telescope is packaged with a 2X Barlow lens to double the magnifying power of your eyepieces. Speaking of eyepieces, the Eclipseview 82mm also comes with a 26mm and 9mm pair of eyepieces to further refine your viewing experience. The telescope is lightweight and highly portable, letting you easily transport it to your preferred observing site for solar or night time astronomy.
Safety Note: Before engaging in any solar astronomy, please be sure to check to make sure your solar filter is completely secure within the telescope, and that it is not removed. The Solar Filter is essential for your safety when engaging in Solar Astronomy, and you should never attempt solar astronomy without the filter inserted. Failing to abide by this safety regulation can result in lasting eye damage, so please be sure to keep this in mind at all times.
