The kit is far more advanced than you would expect
1. "See it all!" Astonomer's Handbook
This practical handbook
will help any amateur plan and then enjoy stargazing. Written by a
renowned expert, Alexander Shimbalev, it guides you through your first
steps on the road to amazing discoveries. The book includes a number of
star charts, listing the most interesting celestial objects.
Commentaries help you orient yourself to the observation object and set
up the telescope properly. Large-format prints showing the
constellations and objects give you a preview of what the object should
look like during your observations. This book takes you on a journey
through the celestial sphere, where you will learn about 280 celestial
objects and how to quickly locate them in the night sky, study the lunar
surface, and observe the planets of the Solar System.
2. Stellarium is 3D planetarium software that allows
you to see everything you can observe through a medium- or even
high-powered telescope, including over 600,000 stars, planets of the
Solar System, the Moon, nebulae and Milky Way galaxy. This software is
capable of recreating a realistic sky in real time, providing you with
panoramic views and allowing you to observe sunsets and sunrises,
eclipses and comets without leaving your home. Now you can observe the
sky even when it is raining cats and dogs outside.
3. Space Posters Set (Moon, Sun and Other Stars, Solar System).
showing the cosmos as we know it. Each poster presents interesting
information on various celestial objects in an easy-to-read format. The
posters are 84x60 cm (33x24 in), printed on glossy coated paper.
Moon Poster. You will find out about the history of
lunar exploration, learn all the characteristics of the Earth's
satellite, and find answers to many questions that interest mankind,
including the nature of dark spots on the lunar surface.
Sun and Other Stars Poster. This poster shows you that
even though the Sun provides heat and light for the planets in the Solar
System, it is still far from being a cosmic giant, as there are stars
hundreds and even thousands times larger than the Sun. The poster
includes the main characteristics of the stars, such as their physical
properties and their history.
Solar System Poster. You will learn a number of
interesting facts on the planets of the Solar System, including their
composition, physical characteristics and age. Some descriptions contain
predictions on the future of discussed planets, which make this poster a
ticket on a journey in space and time through the Solar System.
This is a rotating star chart
that helps you quickly and easily determine what celestial objects may
be observed at a given date and time. It allows you to locate specific
constellations or other objects at certain latitudes for your planned
observations. The planisphere is very easy to use: all you do is align
the date on the star chart with a time on the viewer, and you will get
an exact representation of the night sky. It is very reliable and will
serve you for many years to come.
People often forget how useful a compass
can be during observations. Quickly orienting yourself in an unfamiliar
place and determining where north is can be very easy with this compact
compass. Easily locating the North Pole, Polaris and the Big Dipper
will allow you to quickly begin your observations.
