This refractor telescope goes the extra distance in introducing the novice to the wonders of the night sky. The Observer II 70 refractor features a 70mm-aperture achromatic objective lens, which provides 36% more light-gathering ability than a 60mm. Its 700mm focal length (f/10) will show you the stark beauty of the lunar surface, Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s atmospheric belts, or the billowy clouds of the Orion Nebula. The included EQ-1B equatorial mount comes equipped with dual slow-motion controls for manual star tracking and adjustable aluminum tripod. Includes an Orion MoonMap 260 to help identify the interesting lunar features you see in the telescope, a reflex sight to help you zero in on your celestial targets, anti-reflection coated 25mm (1.25″) and 10mm (1.25″) Kellner eyepieces for a variety of viewing magnifications right out of the box, and a 90-degree star diagonal for comfortable nighttime viewing.
