Great for Night & Day Viewing. If you're looking for an entry-level telescope that does it all, you've come to the right place. This incredibly balanced telescope is ideal both for space viewing and daytime observing. Most entry level scopes at this price point are 60mm or smaller. But with a larger 70mm aperture this telescope has a third more light gathering power than smaller scopes. The fully coated achromatic 70mm primary objective lens, is maintenance free and ready to use right out of the box. With a 700mm focal length, combined with 3 included eyepieces and a 2x barlow lens you'll enjoy a range of magnifications from 35x to 350x. That makes this telescope ideal for just about any observing application.
Sharp Space Viewing. Expect have incredible views on day one with this easy to use telescope. The Moon will seem so close you'll be looking for Neil Armstrong. With planets you can see the rings of Saturn, the polar caps on Mars and the Moons of Jupiter. In dark skies you can see distant nebulae and galaxies as well.
Full Size Tripod with Equatorial Mount Included. The aluminum tripod is fully adjustable and allows even taller people to observe the stars without having to crouch down in an uncomfortable position. A handy accessory tray on the tripod makes it easy to keep track of extra eyepieces. With the equatorial mounting, the telescope is designed to move in any direction -- making it possible to track the movements of stars as the track across the night sky. Use the declination circle, hour circle and latitude scale in conjunction to quickly locate any celestial body. Thanks to precision worm gears and a substantial counter weight, the telescope can be balanced so that the slightest finger touch turn of the flexi cables will move the telescope in any direction with a smooth, steady motion.
A Favorite for Kids 11 & Up. This telescope is a great gift for grads, dads, or anyone with an interest in space and astronomy. This scope is serious enough to give anyone a real "pros" view of the stars, but without breaking the bank. And, since its a refractor (lenses), it is a zero maintenance instrument . . . you'll only need to keep the lens clean to keep it performing in tip-top shape.

Nice telescope, but so-so instructions. Review by Bruce Caitlin
What can you say? 70mm primary lens, spare Barlow eye-pieces, good quality tripod with accessory tray for storing your bits and pieces and great build quality. This is a quality telescope for those on a budget - the tracking action is soooo smooth and as I'm a 6-footer, I don't have to scrunch down when I'm planet watching as the tripod is adjustable to my height and a little bit more too. Minus one star for poor instructions. Recommend buying a How-To book because the instructions get your scope set-up but after that you’re on your own.
Still, really pleased with this purchase.
