About Vixen A70LF

• My very first telescope was a 70mm (2.8"). With this size aperture you will, as I did, be on your way to discovering the craters and mountainsonon our moon, the rings around Saturn and the storms on Jupiter. With a star chart you'll find beautiful double stars of varying colors, and on moonless nights, you will see the Andromeda Galaxy, The Orion Nebula and hundreds of other Deep Sky objects. The A70Lf, although inexpensive, is not a toy telescope. It has the same quality glass and exacting workmanship that goes into our much larger instruments. I hope you'll find it as enjoyable as I did as you begin this great adventure we call amateur astronomy. Clear Skies MrStarGuy
