Meade Polaris 70mm Refractor Series Telescope

    Product Description

     Developed for beginner and amateur astronomers, the Meade® Polaris Series delivers an experience that will have you looking to the skies for many nights to come. Combining an equatorial mount and quality optics with superb value, the Meade® Polaris refracting and reflecting telescopes are your gateway to the cosmos. The Polaris 70 refracting telescope is good for beginners and amateurs who want to discover more. With an 70mm (2.8") aperture size, the Polaris 70 will deliver bright, clear images for the aspiring astronomer to enjoy. Whether you're viewing the rings of Saturn, details on the Moon, or terrestrial objects, the Polaris 70 Refractor allows the first-time observer to explore the world, solar system, and beyond. Pros: Right-side up image means you can use it for daytime observing (birds, hunting, ocean, etc) Once polar aligned, the equatorial mount allows you to locate and track celestial objects because it rotates with the Earth, instead of the up-down left-right directions of an altazimuth Refractor means you don’t have mirrors to align (collimate); it’s ready to go out of the box Cons: Not as much detail seen from deep-sky objects when compared to our reflecting telescopes • Aperture: 70mm(2.8"). Focal Length: 700mm. Focal Ratio: f/10. • Rack-and-Pinion Focuser, Setting Circles, Latitude Control w/ Scale • Large, stable German Equatorial mount with slow motion controls makes tracking celestial objects smooth and simple • Low (26mm), medium (9mm), and high (6.3mm) magnification eyepieces give you variety for any viewing situation & 2x barlow lens doubles the magnifying power of each eyepiece • Red dot viewfinder helps you point your scope at objects you want to observe & accessory tray stores accessories while observing • Bonus Autostar® Suite Astronomyplanetarium DVD with over 10,000 celestial objects (Windows® PC only).
