REFLECTING TELESCOPES THAT GIVE MORE SKY FOR LESS
FROM
STARGAZER STEVE TELESCOPES
The Sgr-4 Reflecting Telescope

    The Sgr-4 maintains the high level of quality established by the Sgr-3, its beginner-fiendly ease of use, and its outstandingly smooth and steady stained and varnished hardwood mount.

       With its larger parabolic mirror, the Sgr-4 has twice the light grasp and will show an increased wealth of detail in celestial objects. It comes with a very smooth rack and pinion focuser and a FREE Rigel Quickfinder for very easy aiming.

       Like all Stargazer Steve Telescopes, the Sgr-4 is made here in North America, not imported. It is designed by a fellow stargazer and hand crafted using the best materials.

THE MOUNTING

Stargazer Steve's 4-inch Reflecting Telescope comes with a light but sturdy and smooth-turning, fully-triangulated hardwood fork mount (altazimuth type). Wood has excellent thermal and vibration-damping properties, making this far sturdier than metal mounts costing more than the complete telescope.

The Northern hardwoods used in the mount and tripod are stained and varnished to enhance their natural beauty.
