The Sky-Watcher 70/700 is a lens telescope (achromat refractor) with a lens diameter of 70 mm and a focal length of 700 mm. Due to its construction and dimensions, it is easily portable and can be successfully treated as an expeditionary telescope (for holidays, for the plot, for a trip out of the city), as well as an excellent equipment for balcony astronomy or observation and nature riflescope.
This telescope allows for relatively advanced visual observations of planets and the Moon, showing a significant amount of detail on the surfaces of these objects. In good observational conditions, it can reveal dozens of the brightest nebulae, galaxies and star clusters, mainly from the Messier catalog.
A 1.25-inch focuser allows you to use any of the glasses made in this most popular standard. The whole is a perfect solution for beginners and intermediate enthusiasts of astronomy at a reasonable price.

This device focuses a lot of light. Looking directly at the sun through this device can result in partial or complete loss of vision. For the observation of the Sun, we recommend the safest method of spectacle projection, that is, projecting the image of the target of our day star on a piece of paper.
