Includes two eyepieces for different magnification options.
Use the two Kellner eyepieces that come with the FunScope Astro Dazzle 4.5" Reflector to scan the skies at two different magnifications. Start exploring with the included 25mm eyepiece and the 20x view it provides. When you want to take a closer look, insert the included 10mm eyepiece to bump magnification up to 50x for more powerful views. The telescope's 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser accepts other interchangeable 1.25" eyepieces to achieve different viewing magnifications (additional eyepieces sold separately).
The included Orion EZ Finder II red-dot sight makes aiming the telescope nice and easy.
Following a simple alignment procedure that parents can help with, you can use the EZ Finder II sight to accurately aim the FunScope Astro Dazzle reflector telescope at objects in the sky like the Moon and bright planets. Once aligned with the telescope, just turn on the EZ Finder II and peer through the sight's small circular viewing window so you see the red dot, and move the telescope until the red dot is on the object you want to see. Look in the telescope, and there it is!
