The overall blue and white color scheme makes the telescope look more refined.

On the handle bar of Askar 71F, it designs a finder base slot. Besides, there are two finder bases on both sides of the focuser, which not only eliminates the need for disassembling when changing the position of the finder scope but also provides additional mounting positions for other astronomical accessories.
