Orion AstroView 120ST Equatorial Refractor

Orion Refractor Telescopes are well known for two things; their pristine image quality, and the fact they cost more per inch of aperture than any other telescope design. Fortunately, steady advances in precision lens manufacturing technology are bringing those prices down. The Orion AstroView 120mm ST (Short-Tube) Equatorial Refractor Telescope is priced low without compromising the quality of the optics, equatorial mount, or standard accessories.

The Orion AstroView 120mm ST (Short-Tube) Equatorial Refractor Telescope, with its 120mm (4.7”) aperture and short 600mm focal length (f/5), provide views of nebular clouds, star clusters, and even distant galaxies that are nothing short of spectacular! The 120 ST is a compact, Rich-Field refractor telescope which, through the included 25mm Sirius Plossl Eyepiece, covers a sprawling 2.1⁰ swath of sky! Enough to view the entire double cluster of Perseus, Pleiades Cluster, or North American Nebula! The lightning fast f/5 optical system of the 120 ST is perfect for wide-field astrophotography.

The AstroView 120mm ST Refractor is supported by the Orion AstroView Equatorial (EQ) mount, which allows for easy manual tracking of celestial objects as they appear to migrate across the night sky. The Included Polar-Axis Scope allows you to achieve polar alignment of the EQ mount easily and quickly. Manual slow-motion controls lets you center celestial objects and track them with very little effort. The aluminum tripod included features adjustable legs and a tripod accessory tray to keep your necessary accessories within easy reach.

The premium accessories included with the Orion AstroView 120mm ST Equatorial Refractor Telescope are nothing short of amazing. Included are the Orion AstroView Equatorial Mount, adjustable tripod, 6x30 Finder Scope, internal polar alignment scope, 1.25” 10mm and 25 mm Sirius Plossl Eyepieces, 1.25”-2” adapter, 90⁰ Star Diagonal, 2” Rack-and-Pinion Focuser, Starry Night Special Edition Software, and much more!

The 6x30 finder scope makes aiming your telescope quick and easy. While the 1.25” Sirius Plossl Eyepieces, both 10 and 25mm, offer 24x power and 60x power and a 52⁰ field of view. Starting out with the lower-power 25mm Plossl, then switching to the 10mm ocular boosts the power of your telescope's view. With realistic sky simulations and many useful features including telescope control, the user-friendly Starry Night Special Edition software will help you plan your observations and understand what you see. Requires PC running Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8. Requires Macintosh running OS X 10.4 or higher.

Do you want a high quality refractor telescope along with everything included to begin stargazing right out the box? The Orion AstroView 120mm ST Equatorial Refractor Telescope provides you exactly that at an unbelievably low price. Order one today and take your stargazing to the next level!
