The Infinity 70mm telescope has a 70mm aperture and focal length of 700mm (f/10). The Alt-azimuth mount includes a slow-motion control rod that allows for easy and quick viewing across different directions. The telescope includes accessories such as a Red-Dot finder scope, 2x Barlow lens, and two eyepieces that provide varying levels of magnification. This gives you the versatility of both narrow and wide fields of views. The Infinity 70mm comes complete with everything you need to view the wonders of the night sky the first time out. When fully assembled, the Infinity 70mm weighs approximately 6 lbs.

Each Infinity telescope also comes with AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software available as a download. This bonus planetarium software will help you learn the night sky and displays more than 10,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies, and nebulae. Furthermore, the Infinity Series telescopes are perfect for the observer who views both astronomical and terrestrial objects - meaning you can observe objects in both the sky and on land.

The Infinity 70 is the perfect grab-and-go telescope with its extremely light-weight setup that allows for maximum portability. Whether you're looking to take in the views of mountain tops or looking up into the night sky, Meade's Infinity Telescopes will help you capture amazing views.
