Shopping for a great entry-level telescope? You've found it! This AstroVenture 70mm GPS Computer Controlled Refractor Telescope has all the features you need to expand your views of the universe. This fully Go-To telescope package features the award winning iOptron GPS Cube computerized telescope mount with the premium TwinStar 70mm Refractor Optical Tube. You won't find this outstanding combination anywhere else. The iOptron GPS Cube features a built-in computer system with a database of over 50,000 celestial objects and an internal Global Positioning System (GPS) that automatically detects the telescope's position on Earth. Using the handheld remote control, you simply choose what object you want to see and the telescope will automatically point right at it. Similar products featuring this mount come with low quality optical tubes that limit your ability to see certain objects. With the TwinStar 70mm Refractor Telescope tube you'll get to see more stars in a just a few nights than Galileo saw in his lifetime.
A Fantastic Computer Controlled GPS Refractor Telescope: This is one of the most sought after entry-level telescopes on the market. The built-in GPS Computer Controller is so easy to use that kids and adults of all ages will have tons of fun exploring the night sky. Simply power up the telescope, choose the object you want to see on the handheld controller and the GPS computerized mount does the rest. Standard computer controlled mounts without GPS require you to align the telescope with the North Star and manually enter in your coordinates and the time. The GPS locator in this telescope mount means the telescope already knows it's location and the current time anywhere in the world. You'll be soaring to the stars in seconds.
Premium Optics: With a large 70mm aperture this telescope has a third more light gathering power than most smaller scopes. The fully coated achromatic 70mm primary objective lens, is maintenance free and ready to use right out of the box. The 700mm focal length, combined with 3 include eyepieces and a 2x barlow lens means you'll enjoy a range of magnifications from 35x to 350x. That makes this telescope ideal for just about any observing application.
Sharp Space Viewing: Expect to have incredible views on day one with this easy to use telescope. The Moon will seem so close you'll be looking for Neil Armstrong. With planets you can see the rings of Saturn, the polar caps on Mars and the Moons of Jupiter. In dark skies you can see distant nebulae and galaxies as well. Best of all, it only takes the push of a button to move the telescope between these objects and more.
Advanced Motorized Mount: The patented design of the iOptron SmartStar-G Alt-Azimuth Mount with GPS, a.k.a. The Cube, is probably the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit. In addition, there are no "dead spots" -- so you can point your telescope anywhere above the horizon, whereas, other mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount also comes standard with AC connection. An optional DC adapter is available so you can plug your telescope motor into your car if you're camping or at any remote location. The mount also accepts 8 AA cell batteries for use at home or in the field. (Batteries sold separately.)
Automatic Computer Controlled Star Finding: The revolutionary GoToNova computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today. With a database of 50,000 celestial objects, including all of the most famous galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, not to mention the planets, you'll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. The GoToNova Controller is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has a larger LCD screen with more lines of content compared with the competition. Using the easy-to-use hand controller and its large LCD screen, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go. The 32-channel GPS module is built-in for fully automated operation and alignment. Simply turn on the GoToNova Controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your telescope location and time with theGoToNova computerized control system.
Great Eyepieces & Accessories: Included with this telescope are 3 eyepieces with storage containers, and a Barlow 2x lens. With a wide range of powers, these eyepieces are perfect for getting started on your deep-space and planetary excursions. Your telescope also comes with a dust-free cleaning cloth and a moon filter designed for reducing moon glare and making surface details more clear. The steel tripod is fully adjustable and allows even taller people to observe the stars without having to crouch down in an uncomfortable position. A handy accessory tray on the tripod makes it easy to keep track of extra eyepieces. Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the tripod is sturdy yet elegant, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely.
