The StarView 70AZ telescope is a great no-tool setup, entry level telescope for children and adults. The beginner telescope gives clear images for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, showing bright clear images of the Moon and planets. You can even see the Galilean moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn.

What can I see?

  • The phases of Venus
  • Cloud belts and Galilean moons of Jupiter
  • The rings of Saturn
  • Uranus and Neptune visible as small greenish points
  • The moon
  • Large globular clusters and some bright nebulae
  • Constellation Vulpecula (The Dumbbell Nebula)
  • Constellation Lyra (The Ring Nebula)
  • Constellation Orion (The Great Orion Nebula)

The tripod legs of the 70AZ telescope are pre-installed and connected to the tripod base meaning you can begin viewing the stars and planets almost immediately. The tripod provides a stable platform and includes an accessory tray for conveniently storing your telescope accessories.

The alt-azimuth mount provides smooth and accurate pointing. Alt-Az means that the telescope can be moved horizontally and vertically, while the flexible shafts soften the movement to provide an easier transition between celestial points. Alternatively, the built-in wedge allows you to tilt the telescope to use it like an Equatorial telescope, giving you greater flexibility in tracking objects as they move across the sky.

The 70AZ StarView telescope comes with two eyepieces: 10mm and 20mm. The eyepieces enlarge the picture seen through the telescope and by interchanging the two you will be able to alter the magnification of your telescope. At a lower magnification, you will have a wider field of view so you can see more objects at once, while a higher magnification will make an object appear larger. Added to this is the included moon filter, which will accentuate lunar features and facilitate more comfortable observations during larger moon phases.

The StarView telescope is accompanied by a Red Dot Finderscope to assist you in navigating the night sky, while all the glass is fully coated to provide a clear, crisp image. A great beginner telescope for those interested in astronomy and discovering more about our universe. Perfect for family astronomy nights.

Please Note: Included moon filter compatible only with included eyepieces.
