Meade NG70-SM Altazimuth Refractor A-Series Beginners Telescope is a quality refracting telescope for land or sky viewing. The world's top astronomers got started with a telescope just like this one - and so will you.

This Meade telescope is perfect for observing Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon and land objects. A first look at the rings of Saturn or the craters of the Moon can inspire a lifetime of exploration. The Meade Altazimuth Refractor telescope is a great first telescope for budding young astronomers and star gazers! The universe is waiting. Serious astronomers for years have flocked to Meade for premium quality optical systems and patented technology.

The Meade Alt-Azimuth Refractor Telescope includes a Red Dot Projection Viewfinder for easy acquisition of guide stars while starhopping for celestial targets, and the telescope has slow motion controls on both axes to find and track objects easily with precision controls. A heavy-duty steel tube tripod provides a rock solid platform for viewing.

This Meade telescope comes with AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software on DVD to help you learn the night sky. The included software displays more than 10,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies and nebulas. You can print out star charts and even plan your observing sessions. It operates on any Windows-based PC. And you'll be up and running in no time with the included instructional videos.

Consumers know that "Meade Optics Inside" means that what they see through the telescope will be views that are detailed, crisp and full of contrast. Go to any star party anywhere in the world and you'll see more scopes by Meade than any other brand! Look through a Meade this evening and see what you've been missing. Any astronomer will tell you that light gathering - not magnification power - is what matters. A small, crisp image is better than a large hazy one. Meade's 1.25" diameter eye-pieces provide wider fields of view, allowing you to see more of the sky at greater magnifications.
