Have a burgeoning astronomer at home, want a super lightweight and easy to use telescope to grab when the mood strikes? The Space Eye 70 is the perfect choice!
Vixen Space Eye 70 Refractor Telescope with Mount
Starting with a quality 70mm (2.8”) Vixen Achromatic Refractor which operates at a focal length of 700mm with an f/ratio of 10, we have a small, lightweight yet powerful telescope. The entire telescope package weighs only 6.8 pounds , so it is manageable by even the most inexperienced hands - yet capable of revealing some of the most magnificent wonders of the universe. Through its "eye" you'll reveal the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, mountains and craters on the Moon, colorful double stars, vast nebula, bright clusters and more. What's more is the Space Eye will serve as a great terrestrial scope too; catch glimpses of nesting birds or roaming wild life.

Product QuestionsQuestion by: wayne76 on Mar 26, 2014 7:35:50 AMThe scope does not come with a carrying case, and while Vixen does not make a case for this model, one of the smaller Orion soft carrying cases would work like the OR-15161. Unfortunately, cases can be a significant portion of the telescope's cost on an entry level instrument and the Orion cases start at $79.99.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Mar 26, 2014 11:57:03 AM
