Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope, courtesy of our friends at Orion Telescopes
The SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope makes the night sky’s treasures accessible right from the comfort of your own backyard. This inexpensive reflector telescope will amaze you with revealing views of Saturn’s picturesque rings, Jupiter’s moons, and the beautifully cratered terrain of our own Moon’s surface. Built around a 3″ (76mm) diameter primary mirror, the Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope also gathers enough light to snare the faint glows of some very exotic star clusters and distant nebulas! The SpaceProbe 3’s focal length of 700mm (f/9.2) provides sharp views of cosmic curiosities the whole family can enjoy.
The aluminum Newtonian reflector optical tube features a 1.25″ rack-and-pinion focuser to ensure sharp images in the telescope eyepiece. Speaking of which, each Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector includes two interchangeable 1.25” Explorer II telescope eyepieces, a 25mm and a 10mm. The 25mm eyepiece will yield 28x power magnification in the SpaceProbe 3 while the 10mm eyepiece boosts the magnification up to 70x power. A wide-field EZ Finder II reflex sight is also included to aid in locating objects and aiming the telescope. An adjustable-height tripod with accessory tray and aluminum legs is also included.
