The spirit of the telescope, the lenses already has the construction of larger refractors.

All glass-air surfaces of the optic have fully multi coatings to ensure maximum image contrast and light transmission.

You can see small details on the Moon, on the planets (of course, the Saturn's ring looks nice), magnification can be increased (up to about 120x) without the image becoming dim. Beside the Moon, you can see Jovian Galilei-moons and Saturn's giant moon Titan. Beside bright objects some deep-sky objects cane be observed well.

The package contains two Barium eyepieces (10 and 25mm), giving magnifications of 28x and 70x, but additional standard eyepieces can be used for the entire recommended zoom range up to about 14-140x.
