Telescope, Tripod, Carrying case

Description

Price, quality, and ease of use are three major concerns for any amateur astronomer, and Zhumell addresses those concerns with this 60mm telescope, the Zenith. This scope is easy to set up, right out of the box. No in-depth manuals to wade through to get it going, just a few minutes of your time and you are in business. The optic quality is high, and the price is also very reasonable for all that is included. This scope has everything you need to get going, nothing more to buy to take a look at the sky! A sturdy aluminum alloy tripod, 3x Barlow lens, 45-degree prism, two eyepieces, and carrying case to pack them all in, who could ask for more? How about a three-year no-fault warranty? Zhumell gives you that too.

Got telescope today. [...] No directions on how to assemble, but it didnt take me long to figure it out. Took about 10 minutes. I was very impressed by the looks of it. It wasn't what i expected. It looks like a much more expensive telescope. The starfinder, is....ehh. It shows everything upsidedown, but the main scope, shows everything rightside up. So, that takes some getting use to. As lite as it is, I don't notice that much shakyness. The rubber feet pads hold well, on a hard surface. Only things I can find a problem with are, the accesory tray, if you tighten it up, just a hair, the tray will crack. And the barlow lens, with a low mm eyepiece you can't focus on anything. But, not a big deal. I'm glad I bought this scope. I was hesitant when I ordered it, but for the money, it has exceeded my expectations!!

If you are looking for a cheap scope thats very portable then this could be your scope. I have a couple of other Zhumell scopes along with this one and Zhumell makes great products for lower prices. The telescope itself is not bad for being a 60mm. But the tripod is not very stable and the slow motion control on it even when completely locked does not keep the scope on the object...you have to still hold the scope into place which makes everything shake. The whole setup is very light and I do like that it comes with a carry bag to put it all in. So this becomes a very portable setup if you want a scope to take on trips or hiking etc. If you are planning on buying a 60mm and want to mainly use it at home then I would suggest upgrading the tripod and mount. But this could be a good scope for a child learning astronomy or just for a cheap scope to take with you somewhere.

    eyepieces and telescope construction are solid, the mount while thin and lightweight held the telescope well. I bought this for my son who is starting out in this hobby and he loves it. Views of the moon and stars/planets are clear and it is easy to navigate and hold with the controls.

              Customer Q & A

              1 - 5 of 8
                  1   2      

              Q1: I wanted to know what is the distance of the telescope. i.e, for how many kms or miles it helps in viewing properly

              A: Zhumell's Zenith 60x600 Telescope will aid viewing out to the limit of its light-gathering ability, which is many millions of miles. You'll be able to see the Moon very clearly with it, and you should be able to pick out polar caps on Mars, as well as Saturn's ring system and Jupiter's largest moons. No Earth-based telescope, however, will give you the kind of views that the Hubble Space Telescope does. Even the Hubble must take time photographs of the sky to get the views it does.

              Q2: What is the aperture size of this telescope?

              A: Aperture size is 60mm.

              Q3: Can you see the moon craters and also Jupiter and its moons like a little dot or the planet and moons in big size.

              A: The Moon will show up very nicely. Jupiter on high magnification will appear about the size of a quarter, while the four largest moons will be pinhead-size.

              Q4: While viewing a terrestial object, will the object be seen upside down or right side up?

              A: When viewed through the eyepiece and diagonal, the images will be right side up.

              Q5: I am plannig to buy a telescope to apply it on my Kodak z740 Digtal camera, I wonder what is the proper eyepieces to adapt between the telescope and the camera? My aim is to shoot space images (moon and other planets) beside the landscape on.

              A: To adapt your Kodak Z740 to a telescope, we recommend the Zhumell Universal Digital Camera Adapter (small). Here is the URL; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://telescopes.com/products/zhumell-universal-digiscoping-adapter-small-36562.html.
