  IDEAL FOR BOTH LAND AND NIGHT SKY VIEWING! 

The Space Eye 700 Mars Viewer 70mm f/10 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope from is intended to introduce viewers to astronomy by giving them a complete setup for viewing the Moon, planets, and meteor showers. Its manual alt-azimuth mount has an altitude lock to help track objects and reduce vibrations. Two eyepieces provide 35x and 117x magnifications for wide field low-power observation with the ability to make detailed observations of features such as lunar craters.

An adjustable-height aluminum tripod provides a stable observational platform, and the included 90° erect-image diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith. The diagonal's prism corrects images horizontally and vertically, allowing the scope to be used for terrestrial viewing as well.

An integrated dew-shield helps to prevent condensation on the outside of the objective lens, while blocking stray peripheral light from interfering with celestial observations

The included eyepieces give you magnifications of 35x and 116x.  

 

The STURDY tripod and fine adjustment controls included allow you to track the object you are looking at.

The Vixen Space Eye 700 is a lightweight, easy-to-use 70mm refractor telescope that would be perfect for an older child or someone who is venturing into the fascinating hobby of astronomy.  See the Moon in amazing detail, be blown away by the rings of Saturn and Jupiter's moons, and peer outside our solar system for a look at a variety of bright galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. With the included erect-image adapter, the Space Eye 700 can also be used for terrestrial viewing of birds, wildlife, ships at sea, or any other land-based object.
