The Sky-Watcher 70/500 AZ3 is a 70mm Achromatic Refractor Telescope that come with short focal length of 500mm. This noticeable shorter tube compared to other telescopes of the same class allows it to deliver a a wider field of view with standard eyepieces.
Premium Astronomy and Terrestrial Observation
Sky-Watcher 70/500 refractor telescope is a well proven performer in value for views of comets, star fields, star clusters, planets, bright galaxies & nebulae, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!). Supplied with the sturdy and easy to use AZ3 alt-azimuth mount, which provides excellent stability and precise control, via its fine tracking adjustment knobs, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes, this Sky-Watcher 70/500 AZ3 refractor is also used as a daytime terrestrial telescope.
The Refractor Advantage
Since a refractor does not use mirrors to view objects, you get a generally sharper image. Images are also displayed without the secondary mirror shadow, making it suitable for terrestrial viewing when used with a 45° erecting image diagonal provided.
