The FirstLight 70mm f/10 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope from Explore Scientific is intended to introduce viewers to astronomy by giving them a complete setup for viewing the Moon, planets, and meteor showers. Its manual alt-azimuth mount has an altitude lock to help track objects and reduce vibrations. Two eyepieces provide 35x and 78x magnifications.

An adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable observational platform, and the included 90° erect-image diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith. The diagonal's prism corrects images horizontally and vertically, allowing the scope to be used for terrestrial viewing as well. An integrated dew-shield helps to prevent condensation on the outside of the objective lens, while blocking stray peripheral light from interfering with celestial observations.
