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.
Primary Mirror: 4 1/4-inch (108 mm) diameter paraboloid, f/7.1, 30 inches (762mm) focal length, overcoated for durability.
Eyepiece: Standard size ( 1 1/4") 17mm Plossl
Magnification: With supplied eyepiece 45X, with optional 7.5 mm eyepiece 100X.
Field of View: 1.1 Degrees with supplied eyepiece. This field of view is wider than 2 full moons placed side by side.
Weight with mount: 13 lbs.
Eyepiece height range: 47 - 56 inches (no stooping or kneeling!).
Tube length: 31 inches.
Storage space for assembled scope: a half square-foot of floor area in the corner of a room or closet.
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.
