Take a guided tour of the cosmos without leaving your backyard! The value-packed StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector Telescope Kit is a great setup for beginning amateur astronomers since it's loaded with so many great accessories and features a motorized GoTo object location system.

The Orion StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector Telescope is the largest of all our StarSeeker IV models, so it will provide the brightest views of celestial delicacies. This smart scope boasts motorized object-location technology and great optical performance at an unbelievably low price. Featuring a large reflector optical tube with a 750mm focal length and moderate f/5.0 focal ratio, this telescope collects a ton of light with its 6" aperture, parabolic reflecting optics for very bright, wide-field views. The entire telescope setup weighs 22.3 lbs. for easy transport, whether you're heading down the road or just out to the backyard.

Following a simple two-star alignment process, the Orion StarSeeker IV 150mm telescope can guide you to interesting sights on any clear night with its GoTo database of over 42,000 objects. A handy, built-in "Tour" mode feature of the included GoTo hand controller makes it easy for anyone to explore the wonders of starry skies, no matter how familiar or unfamiliar you are with the night sky. Once the StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector locates a target for you to explore, the single-arm altazimuth mount's internal motors will automatically track the object's apparent motion and keep it centered so you can enjoy the view as long as you wish.

This fourth generation StarSeeker telescope features dual optical encoders on each axis of motion which allow you to move the telescope tube either manually by hand, or electronically by using the directional arrows on the GoTo hand controller. To save time, battery life, and reduce motor wear, you can manually point the telescope towards the general area of a target object, then engage the tube lock and use the hand controller to let the GoTo mount finish the fine-centering of the object electronically.

The StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector Telescope Kit comes with a great selection of useful accessories:

Two wide-field 1.25" eyepieces are included with the StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector.

The included 23mm wide-field eyepiece provides 32.6x magnification in the 150mm Reflector optical tube, and the 10mm ocular yields higher, 75x magnification views through the telescope for closer inspections of starry skies. Each included eyepiece has a wide, 60 apparent field-of-view to show you more of the target object and its surroundings.

The Orion EZ Finder II reflex sight makes it "EZ" to center alignment stars.

Use the included EZ Finder II reflex sight to help center initial alignment stars when performing the two-star alignment required for accurate GoTo performance. This non-magnifying sighting device superimposes a tiny, LED-powered red dot, focused at infinity, on the sky. After a simple alignment procedure, the red dot shows exactly where your telescope is pointed.

Let the computerized GoTo controller guide you on a tour.

The StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector lets you explore the skies with pushbutton ease thanks to its GoTo hand controller. With a vast database of over 42,000 celestial objects including stars, double stars, galaxies, nebulas, star clusters, and more, the included computerized GoTo hand controller will become your tour guide to the skies. The built-in "Tour" mode will show you great sights on any clear night.

Give your observations a power-boost with the included Shorty 2x Barlow.

Use the included Shorty 2x Barlow with the 23mm eyepiece to boost its magnification from 32.6x to 65.2x, or insert the 10mm eyepiece to double its magnifying power from 75x to 150x for very close-up views through the 150mm reflector telescope. The Shorty 2x Barlow included in this complete telescope kit can be used with any 1.25" Orion eyepiece - it's an easy way to double your magnification options!

Use the Moon Filter that comes with the telescope kit for great lunar views.

Improve your telescopic explorations of the Moon by using the included Orion 13% Transmission Moon Filter. The threaded filter is easy to install on the included 23mm and 10mm eyepieces, and its neutral-density filtration will help enhance contrast of craters, mountains, and other interesting lunar features. The 13% transmission filter also helps reduce the bright glare of the Moon to make observations more comfortable.

The Orion MoonMap 260 makes it easy to learn about the Moon's landscape.

With locations and names of over 260 features on the Moon such as craters, mountains, valleys, "seas" spacecraft landing sites, and more, the Orion MoonMap 260 included with this telescope kit is a great tool for all amateur astronomers. The whole family will enjoy using the MoonMap 260 to properly identify all those craters and other lunar features the Moon Filter helps accentuate.

Keep your StarSeeker IV telescope powered all night long.

This complete telescope kit also includes an AC-to-DC Adapter so you can keep your StarSeeker IV telescope's motors powered from a 110-volt wall outlet. The handy adapter is especially useful for long stargazing sessions, since you won't have to worry about running out of battery power. The AC-to-DC Adapter features a 6-foot long cable, and easily attaches to optional extension cords.

The Orion StarSeeker IV GoTo mount and its slanted, single-arm altazimuth design provides 360 of azimuth motion and 90 of altitude motion for horizon-to-zenith pointing. A quick-release narrow dovetail saddle makes telescope attachment nice and easy. The StarSeeker IV 150mm features an upgraded cylindrical leg stainless steel tripod that is much sturdier than previous models and adjusts in height for comfortable use. Tripod stability is further enhanced with the included dual-purpose spreader plate/accessory holder, which keeps the tripod rigid and provides a handy area for stowing idle eyepieces and accessories.

Since the StarSeeker IV 150mm Reflector can locate and track celestial objects with its motorized GoTo system, you can use it along with a camera or smartphone to take impressive pictures of the night sky. Capture stunning snapshots of the Moon, planets, bright deep sky objects and more by attaching a dedicated astrophotography camera, or a combination of an Orion SteadyPix accessory and your own point-and-shoot camera or smartphone to the StarSeeker IV 150mm to explore the rewarding hobby of astrophotography. (Cameras and SteadyPix accessories sold separately.)

The StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector Telescope can be powered with household electricity using the included AC-to-DC Adapter, or you can use 8 internally stored AA batteries (not included). A 12V DC auto-lighter plug is included for use of optional 12V DC field batteries.
