MEADE Infinity 70mm Altazimuth Refractor


The MEADE Infinity™ 70mm telescope comes complete with everything you need to view the wonders of the night sky the first time out.

  • 70mm (2.8”) Refracting Telescope delivers bright images that is ideal for viewing both land and celestial objects.
  • Features an altazimuth mount with slow motion control rod for tracking celestial objects as they move across the night sky.
  • Comes with 2 eyepieces for viewing a wide range of objects (Moon, planets, or land), and a 2X barlow that doubles the magnification of each eyepiece.
  • Bonus Autostar® Suite Astronomy planetarium DVD with over 10,000 celestial objects (Windows® PC only).
  • f/10 focal ratio
  • Anti-reflection fully multicoated optics



We recommend going for this as a better alternative:

MEADE StarPro AZ 70mm Refracting Telescope

The Meade StarPro 70mm has a much better tripod:
In that, it has a much better mount with the slow motion controls which the Infinity models do not have.
And it has a Smart Phone Adapter included. It is slightly more expensive but a much better deal.

MEADE Infinity 70mm Altazimuth Refractor

Designed for beginners, the MEADE Infinity 70mm Altazimuth Refractor is intended to introduce viewers to astronomy by giving them a complete set up for viewing the Moon, planets, and meteor showers. Its manual alt-azimuth mount has an altitude lock and slow-motion controls for precise tracking of subjects. Two eyepieces provide 27x and 78x magnifications with a 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider-range of observing possibilities.

An adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, and the included 90° erect-image diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith.

The diagonal’s prism corrects images horizontally and vertically, allowing the scope to be used for terrestrial viewing as well. An integrated dew-shield helps to prevent condensation on the outside objective lens, while blocking stray peripheral light from interfering with celestial observations.
