Thrift Shop: The sky’s the limit

Curious about what lies beyond in the night sky? You can find out with our Meade ETX-80AT-BB backpack observatory. The achromatic reflector telescope with 3.15-inch aperture (80 mm), f/5 focal ratio and 400 mm focal length, tripod, accessories and instruction manual fit in a backpack for easy transport to your favorite field. If you prefer looking at birds in the sky, check out our Tasco 21EB spotting scope. What’s the difference between a telescope and a spotting scope? According to the website Spotting Scope Review, “the basic purpose of a spotting scope is to observe terrestrial targets, whereas that of a telescope is to study celestial objects. The image produced by a telescope is always inverted and a spotting scope always produces a right-side-up image.” There, now you know!
