HILL END, United Kingdom - September 21, 2021 /PressCable/ —

The new review by Wired Cosmos covers all aspects of the design and optical features of the AWB telescope, highlighting that it is compact, lightweight, and easy to use. The organisation also notes that all of the proceeds made through the telescope’s sale are invested in AWB’s efforts to improve astronomy education around the world.
Amateur astronomers examine the sky with a variety of instruments including binoculars and a range of telescopes of varying optical power. In line with its mission to empower a global community of educators, AWB’s offering from Celestron aims to spread enthusiasm for the wonders of the sky.
In its report, Wired Cosmos focuses on OneSky’s optical specifications, mounting, and ease of use, while stressing the significance of AWB’s work.
The OneSky works by using either one or two mirrors. These mirrors are curved and reflect the light into the eyepiece to establish the image that people see. Weighing 14 pounds and at 24 inches in length, it is simple to store and transport.
According to the team at Wired Cosmos, the AWB OneSky telescope has a high-quality functional eyepiece that results in the best view of the celestial object. There are two eyepieces included with the OneSky, a 10mm and 25mm featuring 65x and 26x magnifications. They can be switched out without difficulty, and provide an immersive viewing experience.
With a focal length of 650mm and an accompanying collimation tool for accurate line of sight adjustments, the OneSky enables people to view distant celestial objects clearly and, in some cases, depending on meteorological conditions, the rings of Saturn. The OneSky features a tabletop mount that may be used on any flat surface. It can, however, be simply attached to a tripod. It has a tension control knob and a locking screw to hold it in place.
Wired Cosmos’s goal is to share astronomical knowledge and to drive people’s curiosity about space. Led by Gordon Watts, the site features educational articles, reports, and reviews on space-related issues and products for the amateur astronomer.
“AWB’s OneSky is a terrific telescope, very much in sync with the organisation’s goals,” Mr. Watts said. “It is affordable, portable, and powerful enough to delight anyone interested in the stars.”
