  • Orion SpaceProbe 3 Equatorial Reflector Telescope

Description

Buying a first telescope used to be risky business, with more cheap models on the market than affordable quality ones. Our SpaceProbe 3 changes all that. It's not only affordable, but its optical quality will make the night sky's treasures accessible right from your backyard. The 3″-diameter primary mirror gathers enough light to reveal the faint glows of many star clusters and nebulas, as well as Saturn's rings, Jupiter's moons, and the stark, cratered terrain of the Moon. The aluminum Newtonian optical tube features a 1.25″ rack-and-pinion focuser and two Explorer II eyepieces – a 25mm (28x) and a 10mm (70x). The included EZ Finder II finder scope helps you locate objects with ease. The SpaceProbe 3 EQ's equatorial mount allows easy manual “tracking” of objects with the turn of a knob (or use an electronic drive, sold separately, for hands-free tracking). Includes aluminum tripod with accessory tray.
