The StarPro 70mm f/10 Achro AZ Refractor Telescope from Meade is designed to introduce budding astronomers to the wonders of the night sky by giving them a complete setup for viewing the Moon, planets, and meteor showers—while providing accessories that can allow them to use it as a conventional spotting scope to view Earthbound subjects as well.

Its manual alt-azimuth mount has slow-motion controls for precise positioning and tracking, with a sturdy aluminum tripod that can be used by a wide variety of users—from tall to small. Three eyepieces provide 27x, 78x, and 111x magnifications with a 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider range of observing possibilities. A 90° diagonal not only places your head in a comfortable viewing position, but its integrated erecting prism corrects the view for terrestrial use. Meade also includes a smartphone adapter that allows you to capture photos and video through the eyepiece to enjoy, share, and like.
