Vixen Optics Space Eye 700 overview

  • 1Description

The Space Eye 700 70mm f/10 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope from Vixen Optics 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 117x magnifications for wide field low-power observation with the ability to make detailed observations of features such as lunar craters.

An adjustable-height aluminum 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.

Performance
  • 70mm aperture is ideal for viewing the moon and planets; as well as birds, boats, and other terrestrial objects
  • Moderate f/10 focal ratio allows for shorter exposure times if used for astrophotography or digiscoping
  • Long 700mm focal length provides a moderate to high magnification potential
  • Refractor-style optical path produces clear views with accurate color representation
  • Anti-reflection coated optics improve light transmission for brighter and sharper views
  • Reliable 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser allows the use of easy-to-find eyepieces and accessories
