Its glossy optical tube is made of seamless aluminum and outfitted with a smooth-action rack-and-pinion focuser on one end and a dew cap/glare shield on the other. Housed inside is a multi-coated, achromatic glass objective lens that's 60mm in diameter, with a focal length of 700mm (f/11.7).
You'll appreciate exceptional details of the Moon's cratered surface, Jupiter's cloud bands and moons, the majestic Orion Nebula, and the mind-boggling Andromeda Galaxy.
