Product description

Thanks to its sturdy altazimuth mount and quality refractive optics, the Orion Observer 70mm refractor telescope works well for both daytime terrestrial viewing and nighttime astronomical use. The included altazimuth mount offers intuitive up/down (altitude) and left/right (azimuth) motion to make maneuvering the telescope easy. Whether you're scanning a scenic landscape or surveying the Milky Way for star clusters, this telescope will provide a pleasant experience. The Observer 70mm Altazimuth Refractor Telescope is well suited to beginning astronomers thanks to its versatility and simple, easy-to-use design. It is a very lightweight and compact telescope, weighing just 6.5 lbs. once assembled, so it's easy to carry to any observing location, be it out on the lawn or an hour's drive into the hills. Its glossy black refractor telescope optical tube is made of seamless aluminum and outfitted with a smooth-action rack-and-pinion focuser which accepts 1.25 inch accessories and eyepieces. Housed inside the telescope tube is a multi-coated, achromatic glass objective lens that is 70mm in diameter, with a focal length of 700mm (f/10). This lens takes in 36% more light than a 60mm lens, meaning you'll be able to see more detail on both celestial and terrestrial objects. Compared to a 60mm refractor, the Orion Observer 70mm and its larger optics will reward you with brighter images and, for astronomy, a larger repertoire of objects to see. You'll enjoy outstanding looks at the Moon's cratered surface, Jupiter's cloud bands and moons, Saturn and its rings, the majestic Orion Nebula, and the mind-boggling Andromeda Galaxy, to name just a few of the treasures you can see. A dew and glare shield on the objective end (or front of the telescope) helps prevent dew from forming on the optical lens and also helps block unwanted stray light.
