what eyepieces doe it come with? May 23, 2014
Unfortunately mine is stored away, but I can tell you that with the normal lens the moon takes up about 50% of the viewing area, and it comes with a 3x's additional lens that makes the moon cover the whole viewing area where you can see about 1/4 of the moon at a time, very close. I also saw Jupiter's stripes with the 3x's lens. I know that's not very technical, but I hope it helps.
Does the 4mm eyepiece (175x) offer sharp views? What about the 20mm with barlow lens (105x)? Aug 5, 2014
It's difficult to answer this question but will do my best. The views can be very sharp...it simply depends on the distance of the object being viewed. There is a limit to this lens, obviously. I feel it is quite good, but I have also purchased the additional set of lenses for this telescope giving me even more range and depth to what can be seen clearly and sharply. I hope this helps.
I want to buy this telescope as a gift. I also plan to buy the camera to go with it. what other accessories should I get? Is there a computer disk etc Jan 3, 2015
I would get some light filters with it. The eyepieces it comes with are good so I wouldn't buy more eyepieces right away. As for the disc yes it comes with a cool program to find stars, it gives you coordinates to locate and some useful tools.
Have never used a telescope before. Just retired and want to get into some star gazing. Do u suggest this one for the beginner? I Feb 9, 2014
Yes really good for a beginner
Tedd. Good pictures at 5miles. To see erect images use the Correct Image Diagonal supplied with the telescope, and the 20 mm eyepiece for sharp clear views.

I'm a beginner in telescope and i have a telescope thats a 137EQ. This one here is 70EQ. What does the EQ mean? Jan 19, 2015
It refers to the Equatorial Mount which allows for easy tracking once aligned to the north star. The other mount is a alt-azmith and very hard to track. You want this type of mount with the counterweight. Hope this helps.
