Meade Infinity 70 mm Altazimuth Refractor
Designed for beginners, the Infinity 70mm f/10 Alt-Azimuth Refractor Telescope from Meade introduce stargazers to astronomy by giving them a complete package for viewing the Moon, planets, and meteor showers.
An adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, 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.
The built-in dew-shield helps to prevent condensation on the telescopes main lens, while blocking stray light from interfering with celestial observations.
Yes, you can use this instrument even if you live in a major city.
