The Optics of the AC 70/700
With its 70mm aperture, this refractor collects 100 times more light than the naked eye and substantially more light than a typical beginner telescope possessing an only slightly smaller aperture of 60mm. This means it also has a higher resolution and, with a maximum magnification of 140X, can already show you the larger surface features when observing planets such as Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. It is also very rewarding to observe the moon: One can beautifully observe the cratered landscape of the moon, which always looks different depending upon the moon's current phase. It is also interesting for nature watching in daylight - made possible by using an erecting lens or an Amici prism. Focusing takes place by means of a rack and pinion focus wheel at the focuser. This allows the image sharpness to always be precisely adjusted and to remain fixed during observing.

The optics are also suitable for use as a guide scope for astrophotography or guiding in conjunction with a larger telescope.

The advantages in a nutshell

  • easy to set up in just a few minutes
  • collects 36% more light than a 60mm telescope
  • produces a very clear, high-contrast image
  • 1.25" focuser for all standard eyepieces

The AZ-2 Mount
This mount is very popular with beginners in astronomy as it is very simple to operate. The entire telescope is very easy to move around in both azimuth and elevation. For beginners, it has the advantage that they do not have to worry about first aligning the telescope before use. Setting up the telescope is hence very quick and straightforward: Simply erect the tripod and mount, attach the telescope to it, and you are ready to go! The fine adjusters can be locked in both axes so that objects remain in the field of view once found. The mount is attached to a height-adjustable aluminium tripod.

Included in delivery of the mount

  • AZ-2 altazimuth mount
  • robust aluminium tripod (height-adjustable from 71cm to 121cm)
  • accessory tray
