Orion StarSeeker IV 127 mm GoTo Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope

This Orion StarSeeker IV Mak-Cass telescope encompasses all you need for great optical performance and mount function. With GoTo technology, this telescope is a great tour guide of the night sky. Families will be clambering for a chance to peruse the night sky as the mount finds and tracks over 42,000 celestial objects.

The Maksutov-Cassegrain design means that though this OTA is compact, it has an extra-long focal length of 1,540 mm! The focal ratio is f/12/1 and the aperture is 5". These combined, gives this telescope the ability to deliver sharp resolution at high magnifications. All while weighing only 22.2 lb.!

Orion StarSeeker IV Alt-Azimuth Mount

This fantastic Orion alt-azimuth mount only needs a two star alignment, and then it can guide to any of the 42,000 objects in the GoTo database. There is a "Tour" feature of the Synscan hand controller that makes it easy for almost anyone to operate and locate objects. The mount's 13 lb. capacity easily moves the OTA while mounted to the single arm. This mount comes complete with the 1.25" Stainless steel adjustable tripod and accessory tray for stability and storage.

The design of the mount allows for 360° of azimuth motion and 90° of altitude motion. There is a quick-release narrow dovetail saddle that easily accepts the compatible OTA.

Orion has designed this fourth generation StarSeeker to have dual optical encoders on each axis of motion. This allows users to move the telescope manually or electronically. Choosing to move the OTA manually can save time, battery life, and reduce motor wear. Having the option to move it manually means that this telescope was built with longevity and ease of use in mind.

The mount is powered by 8 AA batteries (not included). A 12V DC auto-lighter plug is included just in case a user would like to use 12V DC field batteries (not included).

Included Accessories

This telescope package comes with enough accessories that it can be set up and used right out of the box! The included accessories are as follows:

Two Wide Field Eyepieces : The eyepieces included are a 23 mm eyepiece and a 10 mm eyepiece. Both have a 60° apparent field of view and a 1.25" barrel. The 23 mm wide-field eyepiece gives 62x magnification and 10 mm gives a very-high 154x magnification. So, whether you are looking for a low or high power eyepiece, the Orion StarSeeker IV telescope has got you covered.

1.25" 90° Star Diagonal : Using this diagonal bends the light that comes through the optical path. This means that users can use the eyepiece without have to contort into uncomfortable positions.

Orion EZ Finder II Reflex Sight : The included EZ Finder is a must have tool when it comes to centering those initial alignment stars. This EZ finder is non-magnifying and has a tiny LED red dot.

GoTo Hand Controller : The StarSeeker IV telescope comes with GoTo capabilities. The hand controller has a database of 42,000 celestial objects such as stars, galaxies, double stars, nebulas, star clusters, and many more.
