You don't have to be familiar with constellations and you certainly don't need a star chart to locate and observe thousands of celestial objects with the smart StarSeeker II 130mm GoTo Reflector telescope. Thanks to its computerized GoTo system featuring ingenious SkyAlign alignment technology, the StarSeeker II 130mm GoTo reflector is easy for anyone to use. Once aligned, the StarSeeker II 130mm will automatically locate and track any of over 4,000 celestial objects in its computerized GoTo database. With the Orion StarSeeker II 130mm reflector telescope, you'll be able to find interesting objects to observe on every clear night.

This high-tech, yet easy-to-use GoTo reflector telescope will turn even the novice stargazer into an instant astronomer. Even if you do not know the name of a single star in the sky, it's easy to align the StarSeeker II 130 in minutes. All you have to do is enter basic information like the date, time, and your location into the hand controller, then simply use the hand controller buttons to point the telescope to any three bright stars in the sky. Since SkyAlign requires no knowledge of the night sky, it is not necessary to hassle with star charts to determine the specific names of alignment stars. Once aligned, the Orion StarSeeker II 130mm reflector is ready to start finding and tracking any of the celestial curiosities in its 4,000+ object database.

The StarSeeker II 130 GoTo reflector telescope is a perfect combination of power and portability. If you are new to astronomy, the StarSeeker II 130mm should be on your short list of candidate telescopes to get started with, since it's capable of providing beautiful views on every clear evening and is so easy to use. Beginners will especially appreciate the StarSeeker II's built-in Sky Tour feature, which commands the StarSeeker II 130mm to find the most interesting objects in the sky and automatically aims the telescope at each one. Both seasoned stargazers and "newbies" will love the comprehensive database of over 4,000 celestial objects, including customized lists of all the best deep-sky objects, bright double-stars, and variable stars to explore. Regardless of your previous astronomy experience, the Orion StarSeeker II 130mm GoTo reflector telescope will unfold all the wonders of the universe for you and your family.

With its 130mm-aperture (5.1") short focal length parabolic mirror, the StarSeeker II 130mm GoTo reflector provides a wide field of view and bright images of night sky objects. Friends and family will enjoy probing intriguing star clusters and cloudy nebulas, as well as brighter galaxies on especially clear evenings. The Orion StarSeeker II 130mm GoTo telescope will provide stunning views of the Moon's cratered surface, and will also provide great views of bright planets such as Saturn with its beautiful rings and giant Jupiter with its cloud band "stripes" and dancing moons.

The included GoTo altazimuth mount is solidly constructed and features a dovetail attachment saddle which makes it easy to attach and remove the 130mm reflector optical tube without tools. What's more, the dovetail attachment saddle allows you to use the GoTo altazimuth mount with other telescope tubes equipped with a dovetail mounting plate.

The StarSeeker II 130mm reflector includes a thorough assortment of useful accessories including an illuminated GoTo hand controller, smooth-adjusting 2" rack-and-pinion focuser for use with wide-field 2" telescope eyepieces (sold separately), and an Orion EZ Finder II reflex sight to aid in centering initial alignment stars. Two 1.25" Kellner eyepieces are also included for two magnification options right out of the box! The included 25mm telescope eyepiece provides 26x magnification in the StarSeeker II 130, while the 10mm Kellner eyepiece yields 65x power for closer looks. A handy accessory tray attaches directly to the stable, adjustable-height tripod so you can keep all your eyepieces ready for observing action.

Weighing just 17 lbs. fully assembled, the Orion StarSeeker II 130mm GoTo reflector is a conveniently portable telescope easy to take along just about anywhere. Add some celestial adventures to your next big family campout, or wow your friends at their next dinner party by showing them the night sky as they've never seen before.

The StarSeeker GoTo motors and hand controller require either 8 AA batteries (not included) or and optional AC-to-DC power adapter (sold separately) to operate.
