Have a burgeoning astronomer at home, want a super lightweight and easy to use telescope to grab when the mood strikes? The Space Eye 70 is the perfect choice! 
Starting with a quality 70mm (2.8”) Vixen Achromatic Refractor which operates at a focal length of 700mm with an f/ratio of 10, we have a small, lightweight yet powerful telescope. The entire telescope package weighs only 6.8 pounds, so it is manageable by even the most inexperienced hands - yet capable of revealing some of the most magnificent wonders of the universe. Through its "eye" you'll reveal the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, mountains and craters on the Moon, colorful double stars, vast nebulae, bright clusters and more. What's more is the Space Eye will serve as a great terrestrial scope too; catch glimpses of nesting birds or roaming wild life. It also includes:

  •   A smaller 5 power finder telescope that attaches to the main scope to help you center the object.
  •   A quality Vixen 20mm eyepiece for general viewing.
  •   A Vixen 4mm eyepiece for those really clear nights for high power viewing.
  •   A diagonal Prism that connects the eyepiece to the telescope for comfortable positioning.
  •   A Dew / Light shield and quality rack and pinion focuser.
  •   Non-computerized/ motorized mount with slow motion control knobs.
