More about the product

Same as the Capricorn 70 EQ1 (70/900 EQ1), but comes with the more robust EQ2 mount.

Its 70mm objective lens provides 36% brighter image than the 60mm model and gives somewhat better resolution. The long focal length (900mm) objective lens show very small color aberration even at high magnifications. All surfaces are fully multi coated, making the image bright and contrasty. The magnification can be increased even to 150x. Thanks to the bigger objective lens more deep sky objects are reachable. The set includes two Barium eyepieces (10 and 25mm) delivering 36x and 90x magnifications. The full magnification range is 20x-150x. The 90 degrees star diagonal included makes the observation comfortable. The focuser is a standard 1.25" rack and pinion with brake and T2 thread which can be useful when taking astrophotos.

The EQ2 mount is more robust than the EQ1, it also has slow motion controls on both axes and can be equipped with a clock drive as well. The legs can be extended to set the proper height of the mount.

Many other eyepieces, Barlow lenses, solar-, deep-sky and moon filters are available.
