The BT-ED70S-A Binocular Telescope Kit from Vixen Optics comes with a HAL130 aluminum tripod, HF2 altazimuth fork mount, two 20mm eyepieces, and metal transport case. When attached to the BT70 binocular, the included eyepieces produce 20x magnification, and they have 20mm eye relief as well as 50° apparent angle of view.

Vixen equipped this BT series binocular telescope with 70mm achromatic objectives and multicoated lens system capable of f/5.9 light gathering ability, allowing the BT70 to render detailed images of celestial and terrestrial landscapes. A binocular design renders greater depth of field than single-eyepiece telescopes and is also more comfortable during long-duration observations. Interchangeable eyepiece mounts allow the BT70 to be paired with almost any 1.25" astronomy eyepiece. A built-in carrying handle make this robust binocular easier to transport; an integrated dovetail rail enables an alternative mounting option to the HF2 fork mount.

This binocular telescope kit comes with all the pieces needed to view celestial and terrestrial subjects of interest right out of the box. An HF2 altazimuth fork mount with dual-axis tension adjustment and position locks provide full range of motion and user-friendly control of the BT70. The two-section aluminum tripod offers a relatively lightweight yet stable mounting platform.
