Product Features

The Sky-Watcher 70mm (2.8") f/5 telescope is two-element, air-spaced, fully multi- coated objective, refractor. It gives images which are crisp and with very little chromatic aberration. One of the greatest assets of these solidly built telescopes is portability. The light-weight optical tube (1.25kg or 2.8lbs ) and the compressed lengths of about 380mm (15") make it easy to transport. Whether it is to be used as a beginner's telescope, a "rich-field", a backup, a guide scope or a travelling telescope, the very reasonable price makes it seriously consider. It is quick and easy to set up and the low- maintenance, enclosed optics come fully collimated from the factory.
