  • The Vixen A70LF is a great first telescope for the beginner astronomer or first telescope for a child - and you chose your own mount!
  • The high quality 70mm optics provide brighter views than competing 60mm models, and gather 100X more light than your unaided eyes.
  • Unlike traditional refractors, the A70LF easily disconnects from the mount (sold separately) for on-the-go use, allowing the entire assembly to easily fit in most compact cars.
  • This Vixen A70LF refractor telescope package is equipped with a diagonal, two eyepieces, finderscope, dovetail, and mounting rings.


Vixen A70LF Refractor Telescope

Are you ready for a beginner's telescope that's a cut above the rest? Then take a closer look at the Vixen A70LF Telescope with Vixen Porta Mount...

Starting with a quality 70mm (2.8”) Vixen Achromatic Refractor which operates at a focal length of 900mm with an f/ratio of 12.9, we have a small, lightweight telescope capable of maximum magnifying power of 143X and reaching a limiting visual magnitude of 11. The telescope body measures 3" x 34" (76mm x 865mm) and weighs only 4.2 lbs (1.9 kg), 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... Because the Vixen A70LF makes a great terrestrial telescope, too! Keep an eye on the nesting eagles or spot distant ships on the horizon. The Vixen A70LF Refractor telescope does it all...

Words on the Vixen A70LF Refractor Telescope...

"My very first telescope was a 70mm (2.8”). With this size aperture you will, as I did, be on your way to discovering the craters and mountainsonon our moon, the rings around Saturn and the storms on Jupiter. With a star chart you’ll find beautiful double stars of varying colors, and on moonless nights, you will see the Andromeda Galaxy, The Orion Nebula and hundreds of other Deep Sky objects. The A70Lf, although inexpensive, is not a toy telescope. It has the same quality glass and exacting workmanship that goes into our much larger instruments. I hope you’ll find it as enjoyable as I did as you begin this great adventure we call amateur astronomy." -- Mr. StarGuy
