72602 A70Lf

Discontinued October 2018

A70LfThe A70Lf refractor is an ideal starter scope for beginner astronomers. The 3” scope delivers observing quality found on many higher priced optical tubes thanks to Vixen's superior optical design, engineering expertise and quality control. Supplied with two Plössl eyepieces (6.3mm and 20mm) and 90° star diagonal, the scope will deliver excellent views of the planets and moon. On clear, moonless nights, deep sky objects such as the Orion nebula and Andromeda galaxy will also be visible. A 6x24mm finderscope makes targeting quick and simple.

The A70Lf makes a great partner for the Mini Porta mount for those looking for a lightweight “grab and go” observation package.
