Meade Jupiter DS-60M Telescope For almost as long as amateur astronomy has been in existence as a field of study, refracting telescopes of 60-millimeter (2.4 inches) aperture and larger, and reflecting telescopes of about 114 millimeters (4.5 inches) and larger, have been considered ideal telescopes for the serious beginning or intermediate observer. But never in their long history have microprocessor technology and the latest in electromechanical design been applied to telescopes of this class. Meade Digital Electronic Series (DS) telescopes are one of the most important advances in beginning to intermediate telescopes in 100 years.
Completely reengineered and redesigned, Meade DS telescopes provide smoother motions in altitude and azimuth than previously available. Even when operated manually without electronic controls, Mead DS telescope models are a revelation of mechanical precision and low-backlash motion that greatly facilitate quick object location and tracking. Oversize bearings on both telescope axes of all models negate the imprecisions found universally, virtually without exception, on competing models.
Meade Jupiter 60M Telescope is the same as famous Meade DS-60 telescope, only in addition DS-60M has bronze worm-gear slow-motion controls with large knurled knobs for easy adjustments in tracking celestial objects.
