Take the tabletop Orion SkyScanner 100mm reflector telescope beyond the confines of your backyard table with this complete setup that includes a sturdy field tripod and high-power eyepiece.
Even if there isn't a table at your favorite observing spot, you can use the tripod-equipped SkyScanner 100mm reflector telescope to obtain great views of celestial curiosities. What's more, this value-packed bundle includes a powerful 6.3mm telescope eyepiece in addition to the 10mm and 25mm eyepieces included with the standard SkyScanner 100 without tripod. The 6.3mm eyepiece allows you to inspect night-sky objects up-close as it provides 63.5x power magnification when used with the SkyScanner 100mm reflector telescope. You'll be able to study the cratered surface of the Moon at high-power and see details on bright planets that wouldn't be achievable with lower-power eyepieces. The included field tripod is adjustable with a height range of 20" to 34.5" so you can position the SkyScanner 100mm reflector for comfortable views in the field. The tripod provides the attached SkyScanner telescope with a height range of approximately 35" (2.9') to 50" (4.1') for comfortable views in the field. The tripod also features an extendable elevator column for additional height adjustment to add to its crowd-pleasing performance.
Although it's a perfect telescope choice for beginning stargazers, the Orion SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector is no toy! It is just the right size for beginners and more experienced amateur astronomers looking for a portable yet capable telescope to use for night sky exploration. Its 100mm (3.9") aperture reflecting optics are large enough in diameter to see a multitude of night sky objects, yet the SkyScanner 100 telescope is compact enough to be carried outside easily by anyone in the family. This compact reflector collects over 200 times more light than the unaided eye! The petite reflector telescope's wide field of vision is ideal for observing the Moon night after night and can also catch glimpses of more distant targets such as the spectacular rings of Saturn and cloud belts of Jupiter without having to leave town. Under darker, more remote skies where the included field tripod will no doubt come in handy, the SkyScanner 100mm has enough light-gathering power to reveal fainter objects deep in the Milky Way and even some brighter galaxies and star clusters. This well-appointed reflecting telescope comes complete with 100mm parabolic primary mirror optics made of glass not plastic, three 1.25" eyepieces, and an EZ finder II reflex sight to aid in aiming.
The SkyScanner 100mm Reflector and Tripod Bundle doesn't require a tabletop to provide you and your family with beautiful views of the night sky. All you need is a clear sky and a curious mind!
