The 70mm optics are brighter than competitor's equivalently-priced 60mm models, and gathers 100X more light than your unaided eyes.
The Vixen Mini Porta Mount is an easy to use, light weight, stable mount. It has the Vixen dove tail connection to easily attach your telescope and smooth, friction bearing up-down / right-left hand controls.
Comes with diagonal, two eyepieces, a finderscope, dovetail, mounting rings, and Mini Porta Mount.
Unlike typical refractors, the optical tube (OTA) easily disconnects from the mount for on-the-go use, allowing the entire telescope to easily fit in most compact cars.
