This scope features a 70mm aperture, a 900mm focal length and accessories including eyepieces (20mm and 10mm) and a finderscope as well as a tripod, a smartphone adapter, a panning handle and a free download of stargazing software to help you pinpoint your targets. 


So we rate this telescope very highly, but why exactly is that? The money you save is one thing but what makes this telescope worth getting in its own right? Well, its 70mm aperture and 900mm focal length means plenty of light passes through the scope so you get natural-looking views of the moon and planets, without the issue of false color.

It's ideal for those without much previous stargazing experience, largely due to its easy-to-use design. There are no complicated extras or technology to worry about and as it's a telescope kit, you do get useful accessories for your money. Two eyepieces to enhance your experience, a red dot finderscope, a sturdy steel tripod as well as a smartphone adapter, Bluetooth remote and a panning handle are included.

Grabbing a telescope of this quality at this price point is difficult to pass up, especially at a time when many people are looking to save where they can, so if you are looking for the perfect gift, or to get into astronomy, this could be what you're looking for.
