Designed for intermediate users, the Konus KONUSTART-900B 60mm f/15 EQ Refractor Telescope is designed to provide new astronomers with a complete setup for viewing the moon and planets, and brighter deep-sky objects like star clusters and galaxies.

Two eyepieces provide 45x and 112x magnifications with a 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider range of observing possibilities.

Additional accessories such as a smartphone digiscoping adapter, a star diagonal, and 1.5x erecting eyepiece add to the scope's versatility and allow it to pull double-duty as a traditional spotting scope.

Its manual German equatorial mount has Right Ascension (RA) and Declination indicators for celestial navigation, and a two-speed RA motor will automatically track objects as they move across the night sky when the mount is properly polar aligned.

 Slow-motion cables enable you to manually track your object with accuracy and reduced vibrations.

An adjustable-height aluminum tripod provides a stable platform for sky watching
