The 70Az is the lightest telescope in the Inspire series! The Inspire 70AZ is a definitive telescope for the beginner to moderate stargazer, offers less demanding transport and storage, and is stuffed with features never seen on entry level telescopes. It includes completely coated glass optics, a strong altazimuth mount with a one of a kind assymetrical design, a solid steel tripod with integrated fold-up accessesory tray, an integrated cell phone adapter, built-in red LED spotlight, large projected reticle finderscope, erect image optics, and a focus micrometer for easily returning to the same focus point.
The Inspire is very easy to set up. Just pop open the tripod legs, turn the lock handle on the accessory tray, and connect the telescope tube to the base utilizing the quick release dovetail mount. You are now prepared to observe!
The lens cap has an integrated cell phone connector incorporated with it. Place your smartphone against the rubberized surface outwardly of the cap so your camera is seeing through the imaging port. Secure the smartphone using the two movable bungee ropes. The inside of the lens cap has a fitting that secures to your eyepiece using two set screws. Voila! You are now ready to take high power images through the telescope.
