This affordable kit includes a telescope and a ton of great astronomy gear to provide the whole family with night after night of educational enjoyment under starry skies. The StarSeeker II 102mm GoTo Refractor Telescope & SkyLine Kit includes the computerized Orion StarSeeker II 102mm GoTo telescope, Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer, 1.25" Orion 2x Shorty Barlow Lens, and the Orion Beginning Stargazer's Toolkit. This combination of stellar equipment is conveniently bundled together as a complete solution for nighttime stargazers. Let's explore each of the included items:

You don't have to know Lyra from Leo to locate oodles of celestial objects with the Orion StarSeeker II 102mm GoTo Refractor Telescope. It uses the latest computerized object-locating technology to automatically pinpoint any of 4,000+ astronomical objects, then tracks it until you are ready to move on to the next one! The Orion StarSeeker II 102mm GoTo Refractor telescope utilizes the user-friendly "SkyAlign" alignment system, which anyone in the family can use easily. Just point the telescope at three bright objects such as stars in the sky - you don't even have to know the name of the objects - and follow the simple directions displayed on the computerized GoTo hand controller along the way. The telescope's SkyAlign technology will then calibrate the StarSeeker II 102mm's GoTo system so you can enjoy automatic location and tracking of over 4,000 celestial objects of interest. Night after night, the GoTo StarSeeker II 102mm refractor telescope will entertain you with beautiful views of celestial curiosities, regardless of how unfamiliar you are with the night sky.

The 102mm aperture objective lens and 660mm focal length of the StarSeeker II 102mm GoTo Refractor makes it an excellent telescope for viewing many different celestial objects. You'll be amazed at crisp, clear observations of the Moon, bright planets, and brighter objects in deep space such as nebulas, star clusters, and some galaxies. The StarSeeker II includes an illuminated pushbutton GoTo hand controller, 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser, 90 star diagonal, two 1.25" Kellner telescope eyepieces (25mm and 10mm focal lengths), and an EZ Finder II red-dot aiming device to aid in the initial alignment of the GoTo system.

Point yourself, and your StarSeeker II 102mm GoTo Refractor telescope, in the right direction with the included Orion SkyLine Kit! Featuring the Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer, Orion Shorty 2x Barlow Lens, and Orion Beginning Stargazers Toolkit, the Orion SkyLine Kit enhances your ability to sight celestial objects in the night sky, magnify your view of such objects, and to learn about them and when they can be viewed.

The Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer is a perfect tool for stargazers. It emits a thin but distinct green laser beam that appears to stretch all the way to the stars! The SkyLine provides a wonderfully interactive and fun way to identify tars, outline constellations, and decide where to aim your telescope. It even works in light-polluted or moonlit skies! It's great for accurately pointing out stars, planets, and more for others to see. The Orion SkyLine Deluxe Green Laser Pointer utilizes electronic feedback regulation to ensure ultra-stable beam intensity compared to other green lasers on the market, so the beam remains stable even in cold temperatures. The aluminum pointer body is conveniently compact at just 6" long and features a pocket clip. AAA batteries are included for operation. CAUTION: Use the Skyline Deluxe Green Laser Pointer responsibly! Never aim it anywhere near people, moving vehicles, or windows. Keep out of the hands of children.

A 2-power (2x) Barlow lens is an extremely versatile eyepiece accessory that doubles the magnification of any eyepiece installed. For example, when using the StarSeeker II 102mm GoTo refractor telescope which has a focal length of 660mm, using the included 10mm Kellner eyepiece will yield a view with 66-power magnification (660 divided by 10). If you installed the same 10mm eyepiece into the included Orion Shorty 2x Barlow Lens and then installed in the telescope's focuser, your viewing magnification would be increased to 132-power magnification (66 times 2). Barlow lenses are great accessories for any amateur astronomer, since they allow you to easily double the power of the eyepieces included with your telescope. What's more, the Orion Shorty 2x Barlow gets it's "Shorty" moniker from its compact size compared to other Barlow lenses, so it's easier to find a spot for it when packing your accessories for a night under the stars.

With the included Orion Beginning Stargazer's Toolkit, you'll never be "lost in space!" It contains four items designed to help new astronomers find their way around the heavens.

  1. Star Target Planisphere - Dial in your local date and time and this circular star chart will show you the locations of the constellations and deep-sky objects visible in the night sky on that particular day and at the time specified. It's a great tool for planning stargazing sessions, and for getting the most out of each evening with your StarSeeker II 102mm refractor telescope.
  2. Discover the Stars - A wonderfully written and illustrated observer's guide, Discover the Stars provides a wealth of information on the rewarding hobby of astronomy. 
  3. Orion MoonMap 260 - Identify lunar features with your telescope and this detailed map of our nearest neighbor in space! The Orion MoonMap 260 is a useful reference map of the Moon's surface that will help the whole family learn the names and locations of more than 260 craters, mountains, valleys, "seas" and other interesting lunar features you can explore with your telescope. Use the MoonMap 260 to identify craters you've observed, or use it before you go out with a telescope to plan a night full of Moon-watching family fun.
  4. Orion RedBeam Mini LED Astro Flashlight - This handy keychain flashlight emits pure red light that won't spoil your night vision. Perfect for reading your Star Target planisphere, seeing what you're doing at the StarSeeker II 102mm telescope, or finding the occasional misplaced thumbscrew or eyepiece.
