Orion AstroView 90mm EQ Refractor Telescope

As any telescope expert will notify you, the virtue of refractors lies in their pristine image quality. The only problem to owning a refractor has always been the price tag: refractors cost far more for each inch of aperture than any other telescope design. That is still correct, but constant advances in precision lens production technological innovation are bringing people charges down.

  • A powerful, high-quality refractor telescope at a jaw-dropping low price tag
  • 90mm (three.five") aperture and 910mm focal duration for crisp views of deep-sky objects, the Moon, and planets
  • Integrated EQ-2 adjustable tripod and equatorial mount for manual sluggish-movement celestial tracking
  • Consists of two Sirius Plossl 1.25" eyepieces (25mm and 10mm), 6x30 finder scope, easy-altering 1.25" rack & pinion focuser, 90-degree mirror diagonal for cozy nighttime functionality, Starry Night astronomy computer software, and far more
  • Can also be utilised for pleasing daytime terrestrial viewing with a correct-image diagonal (correct-image diagonal bought independently)

Way down, in the circumstance of our exceptional Orion AstroView 90mm Equatorial Refractor Telescope. This remarkable 90mm refractor telescope is priced to please, without having compromising the quality of the optics, equatorial mount or regular accessories, we might insert. This is a soundly created, excellent carrying out telescope that any new yard astronomer or skilled stargazer will enjoy from the first night time out.

The Orion AstroView 90mm EQ Refractor is a planetary power-performer with its 90mm aperture and 910mm focal duration. Sights of the planets and Moon through the f/10 AstroView ninety telescope are absolutely nothing short of magnificent. When aimed at our closest neighbor in space, the Moon, the AstroView 90 yields tack-sharp views of the rocky lunar area with craters and mountainous locations obvious in crisp, high-distinction element. You'll find by yourself transfixed by the rugged aid of the Moons area as shadows alongside the terminator enchant your eyes. On a reasonably obvious night, Jupiter's cloud banding gets starkly obvious in the AstroView 90mm EQ, as do all four of its key Galilean moons. Depending on the time of calendar year, the Orion AstroView 90mm EQ Refractor can also offer the complete loved ones with jaw-dropping views of Saturn and its gorgeous rings, not to mention glimpses of huge Saturnian moon Titan.

With 90mm of aperture, the AstroView 90mm Equatorial Refractor Telescope can also offer excellent views of many deep-sky phenomena. With the 25mm Plossl eyepiece mounted in the telescope to offer 36x power magnification, our namesake deep-sky item, the Orion Nebula, reveals the four Trapezium stars as ideal blue pinpoints surrounded by a fairly patch of greenish gasoline. If you pop in the included 10mm eyepiece to bump up the power to 91x magnification - Wow! - the nebula will appear sprout cloudy wings, which span nearly the total eyepiece discipline of check out!

Manufacturer Description

Now you can have the virtues of refractor-sharp images without having to break into your piggy bank. Our remarkable AstroView 90 gives big returns for a small investment! This is a powerful refractor featuring a multi-coated 90mm objective lens of 910mm focal length (f/10) housed in an enameled aluminum tube. You won't have any trouble gathering enough light for bright, crisp views of deep-sky objects, the Moon, and planets. Even better, we've upgraded the AstroView 90 package with two Sirius Plossl eyepieces (25mm and 10mm)! The AstroView 90 comes equipped with a 6x30 finder, 90-deg star diagonal, adjustable aluminum tripod with accessory tray, and an EQ-2 equatorial mount with slow motion controls for manual tracking. One-year limited warranty.

Orion’s AstroView 90 equatorial refractor telescope is a classic Achromatic refractor with excellent optics and an unusually good accessory package. Bigger and more impressive than it looks in pictures, the AstroView 90 is an adult size telescope that stands nearly five feet high and weighs almost 25 pounds. With fully illustrated instructions the telescope is easy to assemble, and the package includes two Sirius Plossl eyepieces, a 6x30 optical finder scope, and Orion’s Starry Night planetarium software for your computer.

Refractors are known for their crisp, high contrast views of the Moon and planets and the AstroView 90 delivers sharp views right out of the box. The low power 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece (36X magnification) nicely frames the moon, while the high power 10mm eyepiece (91X magnification) delivers a crisp close up image full of detail. The sharp Achromatic optics of the AstroView 90 EQ also give me delightful views of deep space objects. On a moonless night I like the way the 25mm eyepiece frames the ghostly glow of the Orion Nebula. Zooming in with the 10mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece, I can easily pick out all four stars of the Orion Nebula’s embedded quadruple star the Trapezium. Another night I used an Ultima 2X Barlow with the 10mm plossl eyepiece for a total magnification of 182X while viewing the planet Jupiter. I was rewarded with a clear view of Jupiter’s famous Great Red Spot.

The Equatorial mount included with the AstroView 90 EQ is designed to help track stars and planets at high power. When I set up the telescope, I simply point the polar axis at Polaris, the North Star. This makes it easy to keep celestial objects in the field of view by turning one slow motion knob. Orion also offers the EQ-2M Electronic Telescope Drive which features a battery powered motor for automatic tracking. The EQ-2 equatorial mount is a little wobbly when the legs are fully extended, but that’s normal for any large telescope in this price range.

With excellent optics, classic design, and a very good accessory package, Orion‘s AstroView 90 Equatorial Refractor is an excellent introduction to the world of Astronomy. --Jeff Phillips
