The Space Eye 700 Mars Viewer 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

Mount and Tripod

    Mount:
  • Manual alt-az design
  • Altitude lock sets scope position for easier viewing of terrestrial objects such as boats, cars, and wildlife
  • Dual-axis slow motion cable enables precision tracking with reduced vibration
    Tripod:
  • Lightweight aluminum for easier transport and set up
  • Adjustable height from 27.5-50" accommodates a wide variety of users and viewing positions
  • Two-section legs with thumbscrew locks
  • Accessory tray with eyepiece holders
  • Spiked feet for improved stability on rough or loose ground

Included Accessories

  • 6mm eyepiece yields 117x magnification
  • 20mm eyepiece yields 35x magnification
  • 90° erect-image diagonal puts head in a comfortable viewing position while correcting the image horizontally and vertically for terrestrial use
  • 6x24 finderscope provides a wide 7° field of view for easier alignment and star-hopping navigation
