Excerpt: Great scope for the price! Crystal Clear Optics. For a budget scope it is tops. Love the dovetail on the EQ mount. I bought this scope because my C90 Mak-Cassegrain scope I also purchased from B&H will fit the dovetail on the EQ mount.So I can switch between scopes without having to carry two tripod...
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Got this telescope for the family during Christmas. Extremely easy to set up. Brought it out the first night and we were able to easily see the moon as well as some cool stars. The stand does shake easily if bumped, but I can imagine it being built much mor sturdy.
Excerpt: Purchased to use with middle grades science classes. It works well and allows me to provide beginers with instruction on tracking objects using the EQ mount. I am also using in combination with a solar filter for daytime viewing.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: Selected 70EQ for tween boys based on it being a refractor scope (good for newbies), available reviews and perceived comparative value. Total setup time about 60 mins, but was not difficult. Tripod is not solid, though vibrations dampen fairly quickly. 70EQ comes w/10mm & 20mm eyepieces.
Pros: Setup, weight, size, ease of use (after a little practice)
Excerpt: I bought this item for my grandson and he is thrilled with the telescope. The item is well made and he was so excited he could see the craters in the moon. It's an item I would definitely buy again.
Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a great refractor for the price. I bought it because it was equatorial mounted. Once you are align with Polaris, viewing is a breeze. Manually tracking objects with this EQ mount is much easier than doing so with an alt-az mounted scope.
Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: My aunt bought me this telescope a few months ago. This is my first telescope and I have been stargazing often with this awesome artifact. It's very good for begginers and it's easy to assemble. Good lens and construction material in general.
