    Summary
    Sky-Watcher 70/500 AZ3 Refractor Telescope

    The Skywatcher 705AZ is a 70mm Achromatic Refractor Telescope that come with short focal length of 500mm. This noticeable shorter tube compare to other telescopes of the same class allows it to deliver a wider field of view and faster exposure times. This is essential and preferable for people who wishes to do some wide-field astrophotography.

    Premium Astronomy and Terrestrial Observation
    Sky-Watcher 705 Refractor Telescope is the well proven performer in value for views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!). Supplied with the sturdy and easy to use AZ3 Alt-Azimuth mount, which provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow motion cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes, this Sky Watcher 705AZ3 is also used as Daytime terrestrial Telescopes

    Well Suited for Photography & Travelling
    The shorter focal length helps the telescope take better photos as well as giving you a shorter telescope that is easy to pack and carry. These features are essential for a stargazer or astrophotographer who is always on a run!

    The Refractor Advantage
    Since a refractor does not use mirrors to view objects, you get a generally brighter image and a correct, right side up image is displayed. This makes it usable for viewing terrestrial objects.

    *Please note, the image through all finder scopes will be upside down.

  • 70/500 Refractor OTA
  • AZ3 Mount with Aluminium Tripod
  • 1.25" Eyepieces - 10mm & 25mm
