    • Precise 2.7" dual-speed (11:1) hybrid-drive focuser supports hefty imaging gear trains weighing up to 17 lbs. without slippage
    • Newly upgraded with twist-tight 2" and 1.25" collars and installed dovetail finder scope base
    • Includes tube rings, retractable dew shield, and aluminum-clad hard case

    It's back by popular demand! We're reintroducing the Orion EON 110mm f/6.0 ED Apochromatic Refractor, but newly upgraded to make it an even better value!

    This black beauty occupies a desirable "sweet-spot" for telescopes, especially if you're interested in deep-sky imaging or wide-field observing. The EON's generous, 110mm (4.3") aperture gobbles up photons from faint deep-sky objects and offers ultra-crisp images and great color correction by virtue of the FPL-51 element of extra-low dispersion ("ED") optical glass in its air-spaced doublet objective lens. The refractor's 660mm focal length gives the EON 110mm ED a fast, f/6.0 f-ratio which performs exceptionally well for wide-field visual use or deep-sky astrophotography.

    And now the EON 110 ED has been upgraded with a twist-tight 2" focuser collar and a 1.25" twist-tight adapter for quick and ultra-secure attachment of accessories to the focuser. A simple clockwise twist of the knurled aluminum collar precisely centers any inserted eyepiece or accessory and holds it firmly in place. There are no little thumbscrews to fumble with! Both collars feature non-marring brass compression rings. Also, now the EON 110 ED comes with a dovetail finder scope base installed ? ready for the addition of any Orion finder scope or reflex sight (sold separately)!

    Not only is the EON 110mm ED Refractor a great wide-field performer, it's also delightfully compact and measures just under 22" with its sliding dew shield retracted for easy transport. Unlike heavier, bulkier astrophotography telescopes, the EON 110mm ED needs only a medium-sized mount to support It, such as the Orion Sirius EQ-G. The EON 110mm ED boasts all these performance-packed features, yet is priced to please at thousands less than multi-element apochromatic refractors of comparable aperture. Sweet spot indeed!

    Take a closer look and you'll find even more to like about the EON 110mm ED. The refractor's optics are fully multi-coated for maximum light throughput so you'll get the most out of each and every photon collected by the telescope. Three optimally placed knife-edge baffles inside the optical tube ensure rich contrast by eliminating off-axis reflections and glare that can be detrimental to both visual and astrophotographic pursuits. The 2.7" hybrid-drive rack-and-pinion focuser outperforms most Crayfords we've used. The focuser's integral 8-ball-bearing system, helical gear drive, and dual-speed (11:1) motion control gives both silky smoothness and unflinching rigidity. The focuser features a patented focus lock mechanism that locks the drawtube in two directions, providing a much more rigid lock than most focusers. In fact the focuser is solid enough to easily support astrophotography equipment trains weighing up to a whopping 17 lbs. ? without slipping!

    The EON 110mm ED's focuser can be rotated in two places, allowing camera framing to be set independently from your preferred positioning of the apochromatic refractor telescope's focus knobs. The rugged focuser's drawtube sports an engraved millimeter scale to aid in focus point repeatability - a great time-saver during astrophotography sessions. For wide-field visual use during the day or night, 1.25" and 2" diagonals and eyepieces can be used with the EON 110mm ED refractor. An optional Orion Field Flattener for Short Refractors (sold separately) is available and recommended for astrophotographic use.

    The Orion EON 110mm f/6.0 ED Apochromatic Refractor Telescope comes with two hinged tube rings equipped with pre-drilled and tapped 1/4"-20 holes along the top and bottom for convenient dovetail mounting plate attachment. An aluminum-clad hard carry case with a die-cut foam interior is included to keep the EON 110mm ED safe and clean during transport and storage. The hard case measures 28.25"x9.25"x9.75".

    With flat-out gorgeous workmanship, exceptional optical performance, smooth-adjusting yet rigid focuser and more, the Orion EON 110mm ED will delight any astrophotographer, apochromat aficionado, or wide-field stargazer seeking that "sweet spot" telescope - a high-end, fast refractor at a refreshingly affordable price.
