The Perfect Accessories

Customer Q & A

Q1: Is the Konus 1740 able to view land objects? Is the eyepiece and filter kit included or purchased separate ?

A: The Konus 1740 is perfect for viwing land objects. It comes complete with an erect image lens that will correct the image for land use. The Eyepiece and Filter Kit by Celestron is a separate purchase accessory. The Konus telescope comes with 2 eyepieces - a 20mm and an 8mm

Q2: whats the motor for?

A: The motor moves the telescope in concert with the Earth's rotation. That allows you to keep an object in the telescope's eyepiece as the Earth attempts to rotate out from "under" it.

Q3: How can i get a copy of the manual of instructions of konus star 900 telescope?

A: You should be able to get a copy of the instruction manual directly from Konus. Here's the URL for Konus' "contact" page so you can get the ball rolling: http://www.konus.com/contatti.php.
