- A great choice for beginners, this 70mm refractor telescope will introduce you to the wonders of the night sky
- 70mm (2.75") aperture and 700mm focal length telescope provides great views of bright night-sky objects such as star clusters and cloudy nebulas
- Ideal for observing the Moon, bright planets like Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, and bright star clusters
- The included altazimuth telescope mount provides smooth up/down and left/right panning motion, and the adjustable-height tripod helps make your viewing sessions comfortable
- Complete telescope comes with 25mm and 10mm 1.25" Kellner eyepieces, red-dot sight, 1.25" rack and pinion focuser, 90-degree star diagonal, and the Orion MoonMap 260
A 90° star diagonal is included for comfortable nighttime viewing.
A diagonal bends the light path of a telescope so you can view the sky comfortably. Without a diagonal, you'd have to look straight-through the telescope, which can be tricky and downright uncomfortable when looking at certain areas of the sky. Bending the light collected by the Observer II 70mm telescope at a 90° angle lets you look down into the eyepiece so you can relax and enjoy the view.
Use the Orion MoonMap 260 to learn more about the lunar features you see in the telescope.
With locations and names of over 260 features on the Moon such as craters, mountains, valleys, "seas" and more, the included Orion MoonMap 260 is a great tool for beginning astronomers. This detailed map will even show you where various spacecraft have landed on the Moon's surface! The MoonMap 260 can be used to plan what to look at on the Moon, and to learn the official names of all the interesting lunar landscape features you see in the Observer II 70mm Refractor Telescope.
