TeleVue Pronto 70mm Green tube finish

The Pronto has a true 2″ capability and a large tube ring, a sliding dew shield, and a very nice carry case*.


I had excellent viewing and very little false color on the brighter objects such as Jupiter. You can clearly see the Cassini division around Saturn. Titan was also clearly visible. Two of Jupiter’s cloud bands were visible with some detail and also the great red spot. Jupiter’s moons showed up as bright stars.

Deep sky viewing is very good also. I viewed M31 and M32 the Andromeda Galaxy which showed excellent detail and depth. I then went on to view many deep sky objects such as M33 (Triangulum Galaxy), M101 (Pinwheel Galaxy) then M81, M82 and several Star Clusters, all with satisfaction.

The TeleVue Telescope is for both Astronomical viewing, Terrestrial spotting and Photography. You can attach a 35mm camera to the Pronto with a camera adapter and standard T-ring. The 480mm focal length fills the film frame at almost 10 times the magnification of a normal 50mm lens. The fast f/6.8 speed will give you a shorter exposure time which is an advantage in darker lighting conditions.
