Starting with a quality 70mm (2.8) Vixen Achromatic Refractor which operates at a focal length of 700mm with an f/ratio of 10, we have a small, lightweight yet powerful telescope. The entire telescope package weighs only 6.8 pounds , so it is manageable by even the most inexperienced hands - yet capable of revealing some of the most magnificent wonders of the universe. Through its "eye" you''ll reveal the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, mountains and craters on the Moon, colorful double stars, vast nebula, bright clusters and more.
