With a highly compact and portable design, this scope and its included aluminum tripod are ready to be taken anywhere you need to take them to enjoy solar astronomy. The Sun Catcher 70mm Solar Telescope hosts an inbuilt white light solar filter inside of its optics, and can be used to safely view the sun for daytime astronomy. This telescope comes with a pair of eyepieces. One of these eyepieces has an 18x Magnification, and the other has a 28.8x Magnification. This telescope is ideal for those who will have to move an extensive distance to be within the path of totality for the upcoming total solar eclipse.

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Can this telescope be used for terrestrial viewing, or is it strictly limited to viewing the sun?
Is the focuser barrel 1.25" (so a better diagonal can be substituted), and does it have a T thread on the end?
Can this be mounted to a standard 1/4" photo tripod thread instead of using the included tripod?
Does the finder scope have a white light filter?
