With 70mm aperture, this telescope has significant 36% more light gathering capacity than 60mm telescope, provides enough light to bring you clear, crisp images of the popular celestial bodies and brighter deep space objects.
With maximum practical magnification of 140x, this Sky-watcher Telescope is able to show you the details on the large planets such as Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. The cratered landscape of the moon is also worth to observe under different lighting conditions and different moon phases.
The Refractor Advantage
Since a refractor does not use mirrors to view objects, you get a generally brighter image and a correct, right side up image is displayed. This makes it usable for viewing terrestrial objects if attached to an Alt-Azimuth mount.
