Product description

More about the series SkyQuest...

The Orion SkyQuest telescope:

The optics of this Newtonian reflector telescope are of Orion's customary high quality. The soda lime glass mirror is supplied with high-quality aluminium and silicon dioxide coatings. Focusing on models up to 150mm aperture is via a 1.25" rack-and-pinion drive, and from 203mm aperture a 2" Crayford focuser is used.

The Dobsonian base turns on smoothly running Teflon bearings, so allowing jerk-free, effortless movement of the telescope. The tube holds position as it is suspended in perfect balance. The components of the telescope are both easy to handle and light; the telescope is eminently portable and can be assembled in just a few steps and without specialist knowledge or tools. The entire construction distinguishes itself by its insensitivity to wind and its stability.

SynScan GoTo control transforms the SkyQuest into a fully fledged GoTo telescope. After you have aligned the mount to the Pole Star, the device is set up for use by means of a straightforward two star alignment. More than 42,000 objects from the internal database are then at your disposal. The telescope slews to the desired destination at the press of a button and tracks it automatically. Control is via the SynScan hand control box.

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.
