The Starwave 70mm F6 ED Doublet Refractor telescope OTA updates on the previous model with improved optics and precision engineering in a travel-friendly package suitable for both visual observation and wide-field imaging. The proprietary ED element delivers excellent colour-correction and a sharp, life-like image. The telescope comes supplied with a foam-filled travel case for ultra-portability, and a high-quality dual-speed focuser for making accurate adjustments. The 70mm refractor folds down to 30cm in length, weighs approximately 2kg and can be mounted on a photo tripod with standard ¼" thread.

This new version of the Starwave 70 features:

  • Starwave 70mm F6 ED Doublet optical tube with 2" Dual Speed Crayford focuser
  • RDF finder with multi reticule, variable brightness and metal body and mounting stalk
  • 1.25" Dielectric Diagonal 99% reflective
  • Wide field 17mm Eyepiece with 65° APOV, 16mm Eye Relief, 1.25" barrel and dust caps giving 25x magnification
  • Travel Case with strap, padded foam inserts, and space for accessories
  • 2"-1.25" Push-Fit Adapter
  • Front and rear dust caps
  • Metal dovetail base with standard 1/4-20" threaded "photo tripod format" holes, so you can use the scope with a camera tripod
  • Also fits the iOptron Smart EQ PRO and other mounts

Feature summary:

  • The light yet tough optical tube folds down to 30cm in length and weighs about 2kg, sporting a retractable dew shield
  • ED optics offer improved colour correction, which produces a higher contrast image, whilst allowing a short, portable telescope tube
  • The eyepiece, diagonal and RDF finder accessory package is of high quality, justifying the high quality optical tube
  • The dual speed rotatable focuser has a steel bearing plate on the base, and is easily able to carry a DSLR or medium size CCD camera without slipping when the focuser tension is adjusted to suit. Fine focus is easy to achieve with the dual speed 1:10 ratio thumbwheel
  • A compact and tough foam-filled transport case is supplied with space for accessories
  • The SW70ED telescope can be mounted on a photo tripod with standard 1/4" thread and for attachment to other scopes or imaging systems, it can be attached to a longer dovetail bar with two commonly available 1/4" tripod thread screws

    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
