Barska Starwatcher overview

  • 1Description

With the lightweight and highly portable Barska 225 Power Starwatcher 70mm f/4 Refractor AZ Telescope, you can enjoy views of the moon, planets, and stars in your backyard or way off the grid—or point it earthward and use it as a conventional spotting scope. This complete observation kit includes the short optical tube assembly (OTA), a manual pan/tilt alt-azimuth mount head, and an aluminum tabletop tripod. To get you viewing right out of the box, the Barska includes two eyepieces to give you low and high power, a Barlow lens that triples the magnification of any eyepiece put in it, and a 90° diagonal that features an integrated erecting prism for terrestrial viewing.
