This equatorial-mounted refractor is more suited to older children beginning astronomy. Its 70mm (2.75") aperture is one of the traditional sizes for an adult's or teenager's first telescope. It has 36% more Light Gathering power than a 60mm, so produces clear images, and the equatorial mount enables you to track objects easily without being knocked off course (but is a bit too complicated for younger children). At the same time it is small and light enough to be easily moved to different sites.
The Capricorn's focal ratio is 12.8 and this gives nice crisp images of the Moon and planets. It comes with two multi-coated eyepieces -10mm and 25mm; and a 2x Barlow lens. These give magnifications of x36, x72, x90, x180. (In astronomy, a well-resolved image is more important than a huge amount of magnification.) It also has a 6x24 Finderscope and an aluminium tray for holding eyeieces.
