For out-of-this-world views there’s only one option: grab a telescope and discover the world beyond.
Winter is one of the best times for stargazing, not only does the sun set earlier meaning the night sky arrives quicker, but there’s also the opportunity to spot meteor showers. Of course you won’t want to miss these spectacles and we’ve got a wide range of telescopes to help you with your space quest.
If you’re just starting out, the Jessops 300×76 or Jessops 600×50 telescopes are ideal. The 300×76 telescope is mounted on a Dobsonian style stand so you can use it on a tabletop or similar surface. It’s a high quality 76mm reflector telescope and offers a maximum focal length of 300mm. The 600×50 telescope on the other hand is mounted on an aluminium tripod, making it perfect for using in your back garden. A focal length of 600mm allows you to see even further.
For more advanced stargazers there’s the Jessops 700×76 telescope, which has a wide 76mm objective diameter and 700mm focal length to provide you with stunning views of the moon, planets and deep space. The Jessops 900×70 telescope zooms to 900mm and features slow motion controls and an equatorial mount making it easy to find and track targets such as stars and galaxies.
Alternatively the Jessops 900×114 telescope with EQII mount has an objective diameter of 114mm and thanks to the high-quality optical components and transmission coatings, it offers enhanced image brightness and clarity.
For those who want to observe more than outer space the Jessops Telescope and Microscope Gift Set includes a compact and portable telescope that offers a focal length of 360mm as well as a microscope that features 300x 600x and 1200x magnifying power so you can see intricate details.
