More about the product

The SkyWatcher 70/700 telescope on AZ2 mount has a compact size, easy to use, and the scope provides good image quality. With AZ2 mount the objects can be find easily even for kids. The spirit of the telescope, the lenses already has the construction of larger refractors. The Fraunhofer type air spaced achromatic objective gives excellent image quality, the image is clear and sharp. The system is very lightweight so it is very suitable for observing brighter deep-sky objects. 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. An accessory 90 degree star diagonal makes observing with the telescope convenient. The 31.7 mm standard size focuser has T2 thread.

Summary

Az a baj, hogy egyelőre nem tudom értékelni a távcyövet, mert két alkalommal használtuk. Annak nagyon örültem, hogy három bolygót sikerült megtalálni az égbolton, de szerintem érdemes lesz majd jobban elmélyedni ebben a tudományban, hogy tudjuk, mit lehet kihozni ebből a távcsőből. A távcső állványa lehetne stabilabb, de nekünk azért nem borult fel.
