Item #  27187

Our pint-sized power performer StarMax 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain and Tripod Bundle will provide you and your family with pleasing, high-power views of the heavens whether there's a sturdy table nearby or not!

This value-packed bundle includes a handy field tripod, which is adjustable with a height range of 20" to 34.5" so you can position the StarMax 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope comfortably for viewing without a table. The tripod also features an extendable elevator column for crowd-pleasing performance.

The Orion StarMax 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain and Tripod Bundle also includes a high-power 6.3mm eyepiece, which provides a very powerful, 198x view in the 1250mm focal length 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope for high-magnification views of lunar crater details, bright planets, star clusters, and more. This ultra-compact Mak-Cass gives surprisingly big views for an instrument of its modest size, making it an elegant first telescope or a great grab-and-go second telescope!

The long, 1250mm (f/13.8) focal length gives the StarMax 90 TableTop some serious magnifying power - the included 25mm and 10mm 1.25" Super 3-element eyepieces yield powers of 50x and 125x, respectively. What's more, the included 6.3mm eyepiece provides a staggering 198x power view. The 90mm aperture Maksutov-Cassegrain collects over 25% more light than its GoScope 80 cousin, and up to 225% more light than a 60mm refractor telescope. So you'll be able to enjoy planetary delights such as Saturn's rings and Jupiter's moons, not to mention gorgeous high-power views of the Moon. As you scan the Milky Way, you'll also be able to pull in some open and globular star clusters, as well as a nebula or two.

An Orion EZ Finder II red-dot view finder, internal focuser (which moves the primary lens back and forth) and included 90 star diagonal round out the features of this compact, yet surprisingly capable, Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope.

Weighs 9.25 lbs. (including tripod, diagonal, eyepiece and finder).

Meets or exceeds all California State Environmental Quality & Safety Regulations (CARB 93120 Phase 2 Compliant).
