The Starwave 70mm F6 ED Doublet Refractor telescope OTA updates on the previous model with improved optics and precision engineering in a travel-friendly package suitable for both visual observation and wide-field imaging. The proprietary ED element delivers excellent colour-correction and a sharp, life-like image. The telescope comes supplied with a foam-filled travel case for ultra-portability, and a high-quality dual-speed focuser for making accurate adjustments. The 70mm refractor folds down to 30cm in length, weighs approximately 2kg and can be mounted on a photo tripod with standard ¼" thread.

This new version of the Starwave 70 features:

  • Starwave 70mm F6 ED Doublet optical tube with 2" Dual Speed Crayford focuser
  • RDF finder with multi reticule, variable brightness and metal body and mounting stalk
  • 1.25" Dielectric Diagonal 99% reflective
  • Wide field 17mm Eyepiece with 65° APOV, 16mm Eye Relief, 1.25" barrel and dust caps giving 25x magnification
  • Travel Case with strap, padded foam inserts, and space for accessories
  • 2"-1.25" Push-Fit Adapter
  • Front and rear dust caps
  • Metal dovetail base with standard 1/4-20" threaded "photo tripod format" holes, so you can use the scope with a camera tripod
  • Also fits the iOptron Smart EQ PRO and other mounts

Feature summary:

  • The light yet tough optical tube folds down to 30cm in length and weighs about 2kg, sporting a retractable dew shield
  • ED optics offer improved colour correction, which produces a higher contrast image, whilst allowing a short, portable telescope tube
  • The eyepiece, diagonal and RDF finder accessory package is of high quality, justifying the high quality optical tube
  • The dual speed rotatable focuser has a steel bearing plate on the base, and is easily able to carry a DSLR or medium size CCD camera without slipping when the focuser tension is adjusted to suit. Fine focus is easy to achieve with the dual speed 1:10 ratio thumbwheel
  • A compact and tough foam-filled transport case is supplied with space for accessories
  • The SW70ED telescope can be mounted on a photo tripod with standard 1/4" thread and for attachment to other scopes or imaging systems, it can be attached to a longer dovetail bar with two commonly available 1/4" tripod thread screws
