Q1: Can you see the moon craters and also Jupiter and its moons like a little dot or the planet and moons in big size.
A: The Moon will show up very nicely. Jupiter on high magnification will appear about the size of a quarter, while the four largest moons will be pinhead-size.
Q2: Do they provide weather proof cases?
A: The Zhumell Zenith 60x600 Telescope comes in a water-resistant carrying case.
Q3: I am plannig to buy a telescope to apply it on my Kodak z740 Digtal camera, I wonder what is the proper eyepieces to adapt between the telescope and the camera? My aim is to shoot space images (moon and other planets) beside the landscape on.
A: To adapt your Kodak Z740 to a telescope, we recommend the Zhumell Universal Digital Camera Adapter (small). Here is the URL; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://telescopes.com/products/zhumell-universal-digiscoping-adapter-small-36562.html.
Q4: i want to use this to see the statue of liberty from my condo, will it work or is it just for astronomy stuff
A: Yes, the Zhumell Zenith 60x600 Telescope will work just fine for viewing things like the Statue of Liberty as well as celestial objects.
Q5: I wanted to know what is the distance of the telescope. i.e, for how many kms or miles it helps in viewing properly
A: Zhumell's Zenith 60x600 Telescope will aid viewing out to the limit of its light-gathering ability, which is many millions of miles. You'll be able to see the Moon very clearly with it, and you should be able to pick out polar caps on Mars, as well as Saturn's ring system and Jupiter's largest moons. No Earth-based telescope, however, will give you the kind of views that the Hubble Space Telescope does. Even the Hubble must take time photographs of the sky to get the views it does.
Q6: What is the aperture size of this telescope?
A: Aperture size is 60mm.
Q7: What is the difference between a refractor and a regular telescope? Also is this telescope good for an 8 year old?
A: A refractor is one kind of telescope. In fact, it's the type of telescope most are familiar with -- the kind that uses lenses to gather light, focus it and render an image. Other types are reflectors, which use mirrors to accomplish the same thing, and catadioptrics, which use both lenses and mirrors. The Zenith is a great scope for a child. It's small, light, easy to use and nevertheless, quite powerful.
Q8: While viewing a terrestial object, will the object be seen upside down or right side up?
A: When viewed through the eyepiece and diagonal, the images will be right side up.
