Meade LightBridge Mini 114 Highlights
If you want a portable telescope that sets up in a flash and doesn’t get bogged down with alignment procedures, power supplies, or controllers, take a look at the Meade 114 LightBridge Mini!
With 4.5” of aperture, this Newtonian reflector will provide bright views of the Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, as well as a wide range of deep-sky objects like galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, and double stars. The Meade LightBridge Mini 114 has a fast focal ratio of f/4, which means you’ll enjoy wide angle views of the sky. This makes it easier to hunt down celestial treasures, and see larger objects in their entirety.
The super portable Dobsonian style mount of the LightBridge Mini is very straight-forward. Newcomers will learn how to use this telescope in just a few minutes, and there are no tripod legs to trip over! Just slide the optical tube assembly onto the mount and then set the LightBridge Mini 114 down on any sturdy flat surface, and you’ll be ready to observe! The lazy Susan style base rotates 360 degrees, allowing you to point the telescope in any direction you choose. A sturdy single arm holds the reflector telescope in position, and it can be adjusted up and down in a flash. There are no motors and no noise. Quietly explore the Universe without the hum of electronics disturbing the peace and quiet around you.
The Meade LightBridge 114 portable telescope comes with several accessories so that you can start observing right out of the box. The red dot finder is a joy to use. Once it is aligned with the view through your eyepiece, all you have to do is turn it on and point the red dot at the object you want to look at and then gaze in wonder through your eyepiece! Speaking of eyepieces, you will receive two full-sized MA eyepieces with this package; a 26mm for lower power, wide angle views, and a 9mm for more magnification. Because your Meade LightBridge Mini comes with a rack and pinion focuser that accepts standard sized eyepieces, you can add more magnification choices to your telescope any time you like. You will also receive Meade's AutoStar Suite Astronomy Planetarium Software DVD, which displays 10,000 celestial wonders: galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, stars and planets on your PC. This enables even the beginner to locate and identify objects to observe with the telescope and print out star charts for use in observing sessions.
