Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer & Telescope Bracket

  • This Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer makes for a useful telescope aiming device.

  • With a spring-loaded X-Y alignment, the lightweight ABS bracket offers easy insertion into the SkyLine Deluxe for smooth calibration with your telescope.
  • Eliminates the need to bend in an uncomfortable position to peer through a small finder lens or reflex sight window.
  • CAUTION: Use the Skyline Deluxe Green Laser Pointer responsibly. Never aim it anywhere near people, moving vehicles, aircrafts, or windows and keep out of the hands of children.

With this Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer & Telescope Bracket package, the SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer can be used as a high-tech aiming device for your telescope. By using a green laser pointer in this capacity, you can avoid the need to bend and contort your body in order to look through a small finderscope lens or reflex sight viewing window. Your comfort levels are vastly improved as you use this laser pointer's thin, green light beam to easily aim your telescope.

As soon as the SkyLine green laser pointer and bracket are calibrated with the telescope using a straightforward alignment process, the only task left is to navigate the telescope until the laser beam is pointing to the region of the night sky you want to explore with your telescope. Now you'll be able to view through your telescope eyepiece the same area of the sky the SkyLine is pointing to.

This complete package includes the Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer, an On/Off button collar with thumbscrew, and a two-ring ABS dovetail bracket for the pointer with spring-loaded X-Y adjustment capabilities. The Orion SkyLine Deluxe Laser Pointer’s <5mW green beam works in light-polluted or moonlit skies just as well as crystal-clear skies in remote locations. The On/Off collar allows you to keep the laser pointer powered for brief periods while aiming the telescope, by twisting the thumbscrew until it depresses the pointer’s power button. Don’t forget to power-off the SkyLine before you view! The ABS dual-ring dovetail bracket is compatible with most Orion telescope finder scope bases right out of the box, and extra dovetail mounting bases are available (sold separately) for attachment to non-Orion telescopes. The intuitive spring-loaded X-Y adjustment of the bracket enables quick calibration of the laser pointer with the telescope.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember to power-off the laser pointer once you’ve completed aiming the telescope at your target celestial object by loosening the On/Off collar thumbscrew before you observe through the attached telescope, to both prolong battery life and avoid unintentional pointing of the laser at passing aircraft, animals, etc.
