Product Description & Reviews

For beginning stargazers who want a starter telescope capable of providing more performance than a traditional 60mm refractor, we present the Orion Observer II 70mm Altazimuth Refractor Telescope. Compared to a 60mm refractor, the Observer II 70mm Refractor can reveal an even greater variety of stellar gems and provide greater resolution of old favorites like the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn. The Observer II 70 Equatorial Refractor is easy for anyone in the family to operate, and its affordable price makes it a great telescope to start with as you discover the rewarding hobby of amateur astronomy. The Orion Observer II 70 EQ Refractor Telescope features a multi-coated, achromatic glass objective lens that's 70mm in diameter, with a focal length of 700mm (f/10). This glass lens takes in 36% more light than a 60mm lens for brighter, clearer views. Bottom line: you'll see more than you would through telescope with a smaller aperture.The included altazimuth mount offers intuitive up/down (altitude) and left/right (azimuth) motion. Two included telescope eyepieces, a 25mm and 10mm Kellner, provide two different magnification options right out of the box! The Orion Observer II 70mm Refractor Telescope is better than ever when used with the extra accessories in this value-packed kit. Use the Shorty 2x Barlow with the 25mm eyepiece that comes with the telescope to enjoy 56x magnification compared to 28x, and the combination of the 10mm eyepiece and Barlow bumps the magnification from 70x to a powerful 140x view for closer looks. Use the included MoonMap 260 to properly identify lunar features you see through the telescope. Read the included Orion Telescope Observer's Guide book to learn how to locate and observe over sixty interesting objects to explore in the telescope. Use the Star Target Planisphere to see what constellations and objects will be visible on any day of the year. The RedBeam Mini flashlight makes it easy to refer to charts and books while observing.
