Package A – Complete Kson Telescope Package
Kson Package A – Complete Telescope Package
These packages have been designed to just work really well. This is a decent ‘scope, period. We match a good refractor with an easy to use mount, a good set of eyepieces and exactly what you need to get started. Check the review here.
The Telescope – Kson’s Short Tube F/5 focal ratio, easy to use, light weight and simple to take along anywhere. No collimation required. See this video as we compare the Kson 80mm with the Saxon 80mm.
The Mount – Kson’s light tracker mount – Features a tray to hold your eyepieces, slow motion controls so you can easily track objects across the sky, and sets up in minutes. View a video as we set this up from scratch to see how easy it is. Once assembled, it can stay assembled if you wish.
How it’s shipped – Box 1 – Refractor with Vixen Plate, Box 2 – Mount and Accessories
What else should I get?
Get the “Backyard Astronomers Guide” it’s just so, so useful.
Get an Astronomy Headlamp (they are nothing like the ones in the shops – these are extra dim red lights to preserve night vision when changing eyepieces or reading charts and have separate red and white controls so your not blinded by white light) or Night Reader Pro (clips onto key ring – terribly useful).
Other good items : a 495nm filter (sharpens the views and improve contrast at the cost of a yellow tint), a wide view 40mm eyepiece (to see more of the sky at once), a light eyepiece case, and a Planisphere if your not using something like “Sky Guide” (iOS) on your phone. Maybe some Mozzie Repellant.
What’s the next one up?
– Stronger mount with 200mm pier, significantly improved control, as well as a counterweight system for balance.
– 10mm more aperture, and better performance from the eyepieces due the longer focal length.
Your after Package B!
