Even supposing perfect for beginning stargazers, this telescope isn’t a toy! The Orion SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector is just the right size – large enough to see night sky objects yet compact enough to sit down on a desk. The wide field of regard is ideal for observing detailed moon craters and even the spectacular rings of Saturn with no need to leave town. Under darker skies, the SkySkanner has enough light-gathering power to reveal objects as deep as the Milky Way. Complete with 100mm parabolic primary mirror optics made of glass not plastic, two 1.25″ eyepieces, and an EZ finder II reflex sight, this 100mm reflector provides up to 40x magnification out of the box and collects over 200 times more light than the unaided eye!
An excellent entry-level reflector telescope with 100mm parabolic primary mirror optics – no plastic lenses as found in every other telescopes made for beginners
See hundreds of craters at the Moon, detail on Jupiter and other planets, even if viewing from fairly bright city locations
A tabletop telescope big enough to find and observe objects in the night sky, but small enough to easily store in a closet or display on a desk
Perfect reflector telescope for wide-angle, low-power viewing of the Milky Way and other deep sky objects when viewing from fairly dark skies
Includes two 1.25 inch telescope eyepieces: 20mm (for 20 power magnification) and 10mm (for 40 power magnification), EZ Finder II aiming device, Starry Night astronomy software, and more!
