About this product

Sky-Watcher 70/900 AZ3 Refractor Telescope

Learning or interested in Astronomy? This Sky-Watcher 70/900 Refractor Telescope is a highly affordable telescope which allows beginners to take their first steps into the world of Astronomy. Several accessories are provided, this telescope is suitable for both astronomical and terrestrial observations. Unlike many other beginner telescopes on the market, this Sky-Watcher 70/900 comes with standard 1.25″ focuser allowing a broad range of eyepiece and accessories to be used for a better viewing experience.

Premium Astronomy and Terrestrial ObservationSky-Watcher 70/900 refractor telescope is a well proven performer in value for views of comets, star fields, star clusters, planets, bright galaxies & nebulae, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!). Supplied with the sturdy and easy to use AZ3 alt-azimuth mount, which provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow motion cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes, this Sky-Watcher 70/900 AZ3 refractor is also used as a daytime terrestrial telescope.

The Refractor AdvantageSince a refractor does not use mirrors to view objects, you get a generally sharper image. Images are also displayed without the secondary mirror shadow, making it suitable for terrestrial viewing when used with a 45° erecting image diagonal provided.

Superb Imaging QualitiesThis achromatic refractor from Sky-Watcher features an aperture of 70mm and it is fully multi-coated to enhance light transmission. It delivers clear, high contrast images of the Moon and the planets. Those new to astronomy will appreciate how simple and easy this telescope is to use.
