The Optics of the AC 70/700:
With its 70mm aperture, this refractor collects 100 times more light than the naked eye and substantially more light than a typical beginner telescope possessing an only slightly smaller aperture of 60mm. This means it also has a higher resolution and, with a maximum magnification of 140X, can already show you the larger surface features when observing planets such as Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. It is also very rewarding to observe the moon: One can beautifully observe the cratered landscape of the moon, which always looks different depending upon the moon's current phase. It is also interesting for nature watching in daylight - made possible by using an erecting lens or an Amici prism. Focusing takes place by means of a rack and pinion focus wheel at the focuser. This allows the image sharpness to always be precisely adjusted and to remain fixed during observing.
The optics are also highly suitable for use as a guide scope for astrophotography or guiding in conjunction with a larger telescope.
