Courtesy of Hama UK and Meade Instruments Ltd, we’ve got two telescopes and a spotting scope to give away – just in time for Christmas! Worth over £1000, read on for a taster of the astronomy kit you could win…
Meade LightBridge Mini 114. The LightBridge Mini is the ultimate grab- and-go telescope, providing the same high-quality standards of the original Truss-Tube Dobsonian models but in a portable form. The Meade LightBridge Mini 114 offers magnificent views of planets, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies thanks to its excellent light gathering ability. Its simple point-and-look design and a 360-degree ‘Lazy Susan’ style mount make it the perfect telescope for the entire family.
Meade Wilderness 20-60×80 Spotting Scope. Featuring high index BaK-4 prisms, as well as high-quality, precision lenses finished with layers of anti-reflection coatings for optimal performance, the Meade Wilderness is ideal for those who enjoy nothing more than dabbling in everything from bird-watching to observing the night sky. Magnifications from 20x to 60x, combined with an 80mm objective, provide bright and detailed images for a superb viewing experience, while a sliding sunshade reduces glare and rugged, rubber armour provides an exquisite finish for a waterproof and fog-proof design.
Meade ETX90 Observer. Get stuck into astronomy with the ETX90 Observer. This automated and portable telescope provides exquisite views of a menagerie of night-sky objects – from the Solar System to galaxies and nebulae – thanks to its Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design with extraordinary contrast. The ETX90 Observer features AudioStar, GoTo technology and a large 30,000-object database, which will make finding your way around the night sky fun and educational for all.
