The Danubia Jupiter Telescope is perfect for enthusiasts who are looking for a good all round telescope. The refracting design uses an objective lens, to bend light onto a focal point, which magnifies the image so that it can be see by the human eye. The Danubia Jupiter kit comes complete with an adjustable aluminium tripod, three eyepieces, a 2 x Barlow lens and a 90 degree diagonal mirror, a moon filter and an erecting eyepiece and carry case. It has an excellent 35-400x magnification, which can be expanded using a range of accessories, and so truly makes this telescope the benchmark for amateur stargazers. 2 year warranty included.

The eyepieces are easily swapped over and the erecting eyepiece turns the image the correct way for easier viewing. Ideal as a starting telescope the Jupiter telescope is competitively priced, easy to use and doesn't take up loads of room. Lunar craters around 4 miles in diameter will be seen, the rings of Saturn and bright nebulas, depending on atmospheric conditions and light pollution. A good way to get into Astronomy, without breaking the bank. The three eyepieces are the Super Ramsden SR 4mm giving 175x magnification, the Huygen H12.5mm offering 56x magnification and the Huygen H20mm which gives 35x magnification.

Setting up telescopes, takes a bit of time as the night sky is vast and objects within it very small. We always advise that you set the telescope using land objects to start with, so that you can get a feel for the focal range of the instrument and the field of view. Once an image is correctly found and focused on, then the next stage is to line the telescope up with a full moon, on a bright, clear night and then the rest of the night sky will become visible. It is also a good way of working out where the other planets and stars are in relation to the moon.
