Orion 70mm Observer EQ Refractor Telescope
Orion Observer 70mm EQ Refractor Telescope
It features a multi-coated, achromatic glass objective lens that's 70mm in diameter, with a focal length of 700mm (f/10). This lens takes in 36% more light than a 60mm lens. Bottom line: you'll see more. So if you can afford the modest additional cost of an Observer 70mm over a 60mm refractor telescope, it will reward you with brighter images and a larger repertoire of objects to see.
The optical tube is crafted from black-enameled aluminum and outfitted with a smooth-action rack-and-pinion focuser on one end and a dew cap/glare shield on the other. The tube is held in quick-releasing tube rings on the Equatorial-1 Equatorial mount. Also made of aluminum, this mount lets the user manually "track" celestial objects with the slow-motion controls. For added convenience, an optional Equatorial-1M electronic drive can be installed to provide automatic, hands-free tracking.
The tube and mount are supported on a sturdy aluminum tripod that adjusts to a comfortable height. It looks so good, you'll want to keep your Observer 70mm on display when you're not using it!
The Observer 70mm Equatorial comes with everything you need to start observing right away, including a star diagonal and 25mm (28x) and 10mm (70x) Explorer II telescope eyepieces (1.25").
