Many new astronomers underestimate the importance of an ADJUSTABLE observing chair and just assume they will be comfortable standing at the eyepiece or sitting on a stool. But a non-adjustable chair or stool can quickly cause a sore back and neck as you try to view different objects at different altitudes.
So if you plan to spend quality time at the eyepiece you'll want to invest in a sturdy, ADJUSTABLE chair that won't break your back OR your bank account. The Starbound Observing chair fits the bill perfectly and is used by thousands of astronomers all over the world.
The Starbound chair has a strong but light tubular steel frame that comes in a black or white powder-coat finish. It weighs only 16 pounds and folds up for convenient transport. And it comes with a large, well-padded seat that is comfortable and easily adjustable. To make that adjustment, you simply take your weight off the seat and pivot the front edge upwards to disengage the friction-bar, and then slide the seat up or down. When you sit back down the friction bar securely holds the seat in place, and is rated for up to 350 pounds.
And the seat has a huge range of vertical adjustment with a maximum height of 33 inches and a minimum height of about 7 inches, so it can be used with a variety of different telescopes, and will make observing much more comfortable whether you're looking at objects near the horizon, or directly overhead. So do your back a favor and make the most of your observing time with a Starbound chair.
