Bushnell, a company that specializes in manufacturing quality telescopes and a whole line of other technologically advanced tools and instruments, is considered an industry leader in sports optics. Prominent organizations have granted performance and design awards for many of their products for outstanding craftsmanship and features. The range of purposes for their telescopes can fall anywhere between studying nature and hunting to star gazing and bird watching, and are usually considered to land in the category of “sports optics” to knowledgeable astronomers. Bushnell has manufactured products ranging from telescopes and spotting scopes to binoculars and weather resistant digital cameras, just to name a few. Offering technologically advanced astronomy for the ambitious star gazer, these Bushnell telescopes provide computerized functions to assist the user with finding points in the night sky that they desire to discover and study.
For example, the Bushnell NorthStar Series Telescope is equipped with touch controls and a built in catalog of 20,000 celestial objects. Simple enough for the amateur first starting to learn, this telescope contains a “Go To” command that instructs the telescope to find what the user “tells” it to find. An automatic tracking function can keep the object chosen in the viewer, and then follows it without additional interaction from the user. The RVO, or Real Voice Output, comes in handy in conjunction with the display to make it easy to read while using the telescope in the dark of the night. The tripod assembles in seconds and an included accessory tray tops this amazing telescope off.
The Bushnell Discoverer Series, similar to the NorthStar Series, also features the Real Voice Output and a database of celestial objects programmed into it. The database is a bit smaller than the one in the NorthStar series, but it is more focused and detailed on the objects programmed within. An eyepiece that rotates, allowing the user to share viewing with another star gazer without messing up the focus of the telescope, is also featured in this state-of-the-art telescope. Easily adjustable and accurate to a fault, the Bushnell Discovery Series telescope will provide the viewer with an awesome toured voyage to the galaxies from the comfort of their home or anywhere they decide to view the universe.
The Bushnell Telescope Voyager Sky Tour series features a talking hand-set that gives the user detailed audio descriptions of the planets and stars. The Smart Mount that it resides on directs the telescope as the audio does the talking, making functionality and technology combine into one awesome viewing experience. The audio voice is even programmed to feed the user interesting facts about the parts of the sky they are viewing as they move along. Versatile, the Bushnell Telescope Voyager Sky Tour is available as either a refractor or a reflector, catering to the desires of astronomers that have a preference of either technology.
Bushnell’s computerized telescopes, decked out in the newest technological advancements, are the new way to explore the wonders that the night sky has to share. The ease of use of these telescopes makes them suited well for the beginning astronomer, and the veteran star gazer will make full use of the many advanced features packed within each model.
