Orion SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector Telescope

$149.99 $129.99

Although perfect for beginning stargazers, this tabletop reflector telescope is not a toy! With its substantial, 100mm aperture parabolic primary mirror boasting a 400mm focal length, the compact Orion SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector telescope will amaze you and your family with gorgeous, detailed views of the night sky.

With this capable reflector, you can study the Moon’s cratered surface in detail, exploring highland mountains and vast, planar lunar “seas” of dark material. Bright planets like Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars shine bright in the SkyScanner 100mm Reflector, even when viewing from urban locations with mediocre seeing conditions. On especially clear evenings when viewing from areas with dark skies, the pint-sized Orion SkyScanner telescope can gather enough light for views of open and globular star clusters, bright cloudy nebulas, and even a few distant galaxies.

Set the compact SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector on table in the back yard, or even on the hood of your car in the backcountry, and comfortably view the heavens to your heart’s content. Thanks to its small stature, the SkyScanner makes a great grab-and-go telescope for road trip adventures, camp-outs, and just carrying to the local park.

Orion GiantView ED 16×80 Waterproof Astronomy Binoculars

$320 $290

Are you a serious amateur astronomer looking for the best and brightest wide-field images of the night sky with binoculars? The Orion 16×80 ED GiantView Binocular will fit that bill! These binoculars combine a large 80mm aperture with Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass lenses for bright, exceptionally clear, true-color views of the night sky. Not to mention these binoculars work equally well for long distance daytime viewing. All of this in a waterproof body, with BAK-4 prisms, robust mechanical construction, and a solid pier tripod mounting system. And all these features for a very reasonable price.

You’ll understand the combination of large aperture and ED lenses the first time you scan the Milky Way ? pinpoint stars, with exceptional contrast against a dark background. Fully Multi-Coated surfaces provide the brightest possible images, and with 21mm of eye relief, even eyeglass wearers can view the entire field of view. And these binoculars boast a 4.0° field of view for scanning the skies, or watching distant wildlife.

The sturdy aluminum alloy binocular body with a second hinge between the objective lenses provides a solid, well collimated mechanical system. Glare-threaded and blackened interiors provide even more contrast with less light scatter. The built-in tripod mounting bar attaches securely to a standard photographic tripod (which is strongly recommended), and each binocular comes with lens caps, neck strap and a soft carry bag.
