Flip the switch on your Meade LS-6 and being your “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”
Astronomy Products – Just set up your time-machine-to-the-stars, flick the ignition switch, and your “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time” begins. Incorporating GPS satellites, internal leveling sensors, a magnetic north compass, and a built-in ECLIPS CCD imager capable of displaying vibrant astroimages on the scope or filing them away so you can send them to all of your astronomy buddies, later, the Meade LS-6 ACF Telescope includes the industry’s most advanced go-to astronomy system, for truly hands-free star-gazing.
Flick the switch, connect to GPS
The Light Switch Technology included with the Meade LS-6 go-to telescope goes to work with the flick of the switch, turning over the job of connecting the global positioning system with overhead satellites to a built-in Integrated Sensor Module (ISM). The global positioning system pinpoints the exact location and local time of your time-machine-to-the-stars on the planet’s surface and then the Level North Technology sensors silently search for two alignment stars and automatically start charting out a real-time sky map of the night sky in its memory banks for the present time and your location on the Earth’s surface.
The perfect telescope for the educated amateur astronomer heading out into the universe for their first “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”. The Meade LS-6 will automatically take you to points in space and time you’ll never forget and you can take a few pictures of your unforgettable views to show your friends, when you get back.
Perfect telescope for both amateur and professional astronomers
Experienced astronomers will love not having to remember the name of alignment stars or having to worry about the view being blocked by a tree or house, which can be frustrating and time-consuming to solve. The Meade LS-6 go-to telescope solves these problems and gives you more time for what you really want to do, “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”.
Astronomy Products – Laser collimators are indispensable tools for aligning the optics of your time-machine-to-the-stars, but many laser collimators of the past had an inherent weakness in which the collimator wasn’t centered in the focuser. This often caused a small gap to exist between the collimator and the focuser’s drawtube, no matter how precise the machining of the collimator’s barrel. HOTECH’s SCA Laser Collimators have solved this problem using a Self-Centering Adapter (SCA) using rubber compression rings that expand evenly against the drawtube and center the collimator perfectly straight in the focuser.
Innovations in design and function
A clever idea that works by using three perfectly aligned laser beams to simulate the parallel rays coming from a distant star, HOTECH’s SCA Laser Collimators work great for quickly aligning the optics of your time-machine-to-the-stars. Stargazers using Ritchey-Chretien, Dall-Kirkham, Schmidt-Cassegrain, and Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes can quickly, efficient and reliably prepare their telescope to continue their “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”, using the only effective method known to collimate their time-machines-to-the-stars.
HOTECH’s SCA Laser Collimators allow users to perform collimation indoors or outdoors, day or night, using a clear and simple to read display located within a short focal distance of the telescope for diagnosing alignment problems with a telescope optical systems without guess-work. Avoid the frustration of moving between the front and back of your telescope adjusting the corresponding alignment screw, while holding your breath and looking through a high magnification eyepiece trying to reference the concentricity of an image out of focus with HOTECH’s SCA Laser Collimators. You’ll have more time for viewing the universe and taking the unforgettable Astro images you really did all of this work for.
Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time in a Celestron EdgeHD Series Telescope
You can find the Celestron EdgeHD Series Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope at your local astronomy shop
Astronomy Products – Space travellers looking to “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time” need to travel to infinity and back using the best time-machine-to-the-stars they can find. Celestron’s new Celestron EdgeHD Series Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes are the perfect time-machine-to-the-stars for the young traveller looking to “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time, or the veteran space traveller wanting to try out a new spaceship to the stars. Celestron EdgeHD Series Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes are available in sizes ranging from 8 to 14 inches and have a built-in field flattener/coma corrector in the baffle tube that according to the designers and engineers at Celestron eliminates a lot of the unwanted star bloat that can plague photos taken with conventional SCTs. Add in the enhanced focuser that engineers designed for the Celestron EdgeHD Series telescopes to reduce the image shift problems users of SCTs have noted and your time-machine-to-the-stars is ready to blast-off.
