The scope features a conventional and reliable refractor light path with a generous 70mm aperture and long focal length that allows you to easily view all kinds of astronomical objects. Two eyepieces are included that produce 40x and 100x, with a 2x Barlow lens that effectively doubles the magnification of each eyepiece. A 45° diagonal is also provided to put the user in a more comfortable viewing position whether you're looking at the moon high overhead or boats out on the water from a balcony. A 1.5x low power erecting eyepiece corrects the image orientation horizontally and vertically to view terrestrial objects in comfort. Its adjustable aluminum tripod provides a stable observation platform, and its adjustable height from 31 to 48" allows for comfortable viewing by most users. Additional accessories include a filter that allows you to safely view the moon, and a red-dot finder scope that makes finding object fast and star-hopping navigation easy.
