Explore Scientific FirstLight 70mm Refractor with AZ Mount
This telescope is a great way to break into the world of astronomy. With the impressive optics, this telescope will help amateur astronomers explore the solar system or the deep sky. It has all you need for a complete viewing setup. This means that it has a refracting OTA, a sturdy alt-azimuth mount, two eyepieces, a Red-dot Finder, and more!
The 70mm aperture is enough to give incredible views of lunar details, Jupiter's cloud belts, Saturn's rings, and the brightest Messier objects.
The AZ mount is a simple fork-mounted alt-azimuth mount with manual slow motion controls on an adjustable aluminum tripod. This mount puts the control of finding and tracking celestial objects in the observer's hands. Learning the night sky with a great refracting telescope is only one of the advantages of adding this telescope to your astronomer's toolbox.
