I Love the 70 EQ! It’s a wonderful telescope, suitable for a beginner, it’s a telescope that the whole family can use. It will give you a brilliant view of the Moon, the rings of Saturn, even the cloud belts of Jupiter! My favourite thing about the 70EQ is its easy set up and the fact that it doubles as a great scope for land viewing. So, if you have a balcony that has a nice view you can use it to look at the land during the day, and the stars at night! The EQ also has an equatorial mount, which is awesome for accurate star gazing as you can track objects through the sky! It’s a brilliant telescope that I would recommend to anyone. If you like the 70EQ, then check out our 130EQ, its larger aperture will give you an ever clearer view of the skies.

I would recommend this to a friend!
