Great for all-around astronomical observing, the affordable Orion SpaceProbe II 76mm Equatorial Reflector telescope is just the right size and price for beginning astronomers and their families. The SpaceProbe II 76mm telescope boasts features and viewing capabilities usually reserved for much more expensive instruments.

With its 3"-aperture optics and equatorial mount, the petite SpaceProbe II 76mm Reflector is a great choice for anyone who is curious about space and the stars. The SpaceProbe II 76mm gathers a good amount of light from the night sky, for impressively bright and detailed views of celestial wonders. Everyone in the family will want to join the fun for great views of the Moon, bright planets, and star clusters seen through the telescope. This complete, full-fledged reflector telescope will help foster a lifetime of appreciation for science and astronomy.

This inexpensive reflector telescope will amaze you with revealing views of Saturn's picturesque rings, Jupiter's moons, and the beautifully cratered terrain of our own Moon's surface. Its 3" (76mm) primary mirror gathers enough light to snare the faint glows of some very exotic star clusters and distant nebulas too. The SpaceProbe II 76mm telescope's focal length of 700mm (f/9.2) provides sharp views of cosmic curiosities the whole family can enjoy.
Each Orion SpaceProbe II 76mm Reflector includes two anti-reflection coated 1.25" Kellner telescope eyepieces, a 25mm and a 10mm, for two different magnification options right out of the box. The 25mm eyepiece will yield 28x power magnification in the SpaceProbe II 76mm while the 10mm eyepiece boosts the magnification up to 70x power for closer looks. These 1.25" barrel eyepieces are better and more versatile than smaller .965" eyepieces you might find with department store telescopes.

An included red-dot sight makes aiming the telescope nice and easy. Following a simple alignment procedure that parents can help with, you can use the red-dot sight to accurately aim the SpaceProbe II 76mm telescope at objects in the sky like the Moon and bright planets. Once aligned with the telescope, just turn on the red-dot sight and peer through the 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.

Use the included 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 MoonMap 260 can be used to plan what to look at on the Moon, and to learn the official names of all the interesting lunar landscape features you see in the SpaceProbe II 76mm Reflector Telescope.

The SpaceProbe II 76mm Equatorial Reflector Telescope comes with the EQ-1B equatorial mount. A considerable upgrade compared to altazimuth mounts, the included equatorial (or EQ) mount allows easy manual "tracking" of celestial objects with included slow-motion control cables. An adjustable-height tripod with accessory tray and aluminum legs is also included with this feature-packed telescope. (The SpaceProbe II, like all Newtonian Reflector telescopes, is not recommended for terrestrial viewing since images seen through it will appear upside-down).

Great for all-around astronomical observing, this reflector telescope is a great introductory instrument for beginning stargazers.
