Televue 76

July 18, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I admit it.  I have a thing about gadgets.  And science.  You combine these things together, and you get me: someone who owns more than one telescope.  

 

I posted some pictures recently of my Televue NP101 telescope.  While I was at it, I threw my smaller Televue 76 in the spotlight as well:

 

76mm of goodness

 

This little guy has a 76mm objective lens (3 inches), and is of a different optical design than the NP101.  The 76 is a "doublet", which uses 2 lenses, vs. the NP101 which uses 4.  

 

This little guy is awesome for traveling and for a quick view on the deck, or for a spotting scope - for looking at wildlife, or calling shots at the range for your shooting buddy for example.

 

A little closer view:

 

A little view of the heavens

 

 

 

It looks kinda funny with the big 31mm Nagler eyepiece!  But trust me, when you look through it, who cares if it looks a little goofy!  Al Nagler didn't call it the "spacewalk" experience for nothing!  

 

Till next time: get yourself a simple backyard telescope, go outside and look up!
