For centuries, young and old have been captivated by night skies ablaze with stars and intrigued by the mysteries of space. Budding astronomers and casual stargazers alike will thrill at unlocking the wonders of the universe with the Meade NG-70SM 70mm Altazimuth Refractor Telescope!
This stellar entry-level telescope brings all the beauty and majesty of the stars and the world around you into vivid, high-contrast focus. Meade promises to deliver crisper, higher-contrast images with more detail than other brands of comparable value. You can have all the power in the world, but if the telescope doesn't focus on light gathering, like Meade does, you'll have a larger image, but it'll be blurry. This way, your smaller, crisper image will allow you to see things clearer than you ever thought you could!
Its red dot projection viewfinder and slow motion controls on both axes will help find and track objects easily in your celestial searches. The included star guide, AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software on DVD, operates on any Windows-based PC and will get your space odyssey started with instructional videos on how to use the telescope, chart the night sky and much more. A first glimpse at the craters of the moon or the rings of Saturn through this telescope's 1.25" diameter eye-piece (which provides a wide field of view) is sure to inspire a lifetime of exploration!
Tube colour may vary from image.

Recently I had a customer come in and tell me that this was a great telescope. It is of corse a great educational tool because you can study the stars but is an activity that you can do as a family or alone. The quality of the telescope is great for kids as they are interested in space. It is the perfect step before intense telescopes.
