The Orion SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector Kit is just the right size - large enough to see night sky objects yet compact enough to sit on a desk. Thanks to its small stature, the SkyScanner is a great grab-and-go telescope for visual adventures as close as the backyard table, or as far as your favorite remote dark sky site. More experienced amateur astronomers can use the easily portable SkyScanner 100mm Reflector as a quick-draw alternative to more complicated setups.

This Special Kit includes: Orion MoonMap 260, Orion moon filter, Orion?s Star Target Planisphere and Orion?s Exploring the Cosmos : An Introduction to the Night Sky

Use the Orion MoonMap 260 to learn more about the lunar features you see in the telescope.

With locations and names of over 260 features on the Moon such as craters, mountains, valleys, "seas" and more, the included Orion MoonMap 260 is a great tool for beginning astronomers. This detailed map will even show you where various spacecraft have landed on the Moon's surface! The whole family will enjoy looking at the Moon with the telescope, then using the MoonMap 260 to learn the names of the craters and other features observed.

Use the included Orion E-Series Moon Filter to enhance your viewing enjoyment of the Moon.

The Orion E-Series 1.25" 13% Transmission Moon Filter reduces glare and boosts contrast so you can see enjoy more detailed views of lunar surface features. It blocks excessively bright glare to provide a more comfortable view of the Moon's surface, the neutral density filter will not alter the natural color of the Moon and the eyepiece filter transmits only 13% of the incoming light, improving contrast and detail.

You'll get both a 20mm and 10mm eyepiece with the SkyScanner 100mm

Every night you use the SkyScanner 100mm, start with the 20mm eyepiece to see a nice and wide view with 20x magnification. Once you've centered and object in the 20mm eyepiece, you can boost the magnification up to 40x by using the 10mm eyepiece. Using both the 20mm and 10mm included eyepieces gives you a variety of magnifications to stargaze with, and you can purchase other 1.25" eyepieces to use with the SkyScanner telescope as you advance in the hobby.

Dial-in details with the SkyScanner 100mm telescope's precise focuser.

The SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector features a 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser with smooth adjustment control that makes it easy to obtain sharp, crisply detailed views of the Moon, planets, and more. The focuser accepts both the 20mm and 10mm included eyepieces, and will work with other 1.25" telescope eyepieces, so you can expand your magnification possibilities by purchasing additional eyepieces with different focal lengths.

The included Orion EZ Finder II red-dot sight makes it "EZ" to aim the telescope.

Following a simple alignment procedure that parents can help with, you can use the EZ Finder II sight to accurately aim the SkyScanner 100mm TableTop telescope at objects in the sky like the Moon and bright planets. Once aligned with the telescope, just turn on the EZ Finder II and peer through the sight's small circular viewing window so you see the red dot, and move the telescope until the red dot is on the object you want to see to place it in the reflector's field of view.
