This telescope offers great features at an affordable price.
Not your average TOY scope!
This refractor telescope is an excellent choice for skywatchers and investigators looking for a well-built, complete telescope that can display wonderful views of the night sky at an affordable price. You will appreciate the crisp views of celestial wonders provided by this capable refractor telescope.
A classic refractor telescope with precision glass optics and great portability, the Orion Observer 60 is a complete telescope package that includes the refractor optical tube, a host of accessories, and an adjustable aluminum tripod. It is especially popular with junior astronomy enthusiasts, thanks to its simple operation and traditional appearance. The telescope weighs just 5.8 lbs. total when assembled, including the mount and tripod, making it very easy for anyone to transport for a night full of stargazing and investigation.
This telescope offers higher quality and more reliable performance than any telescope you’d find in the 'toy' stores and department stores. Featuring an aluminum telescope optical tube and all-glass optics, including a fully antireflection-coated 60mm achromatic objective lens, the Observer 60 yields crisp, bright images of the night sky. The altazimuth mount provides smooth motion in both altitude (up/down) and azimuth (left/right) axes of motion, and the sturdy yet lightweight aluminum tripod is adjustable for crowd-pleasing performance and comfort. There’s even a handy accessory tray included that attaches to the tripod so you have a convenient spot to place your eyepieces and other astronomy accessories.
The included telescope eyepieces will provide 28x power magnification, and 70x power magnification options right out of the box! The included Orion EZ Finder II reflex sight makes aiming the telescope nice and easy following a simple alignment procedure. A 90° mirror diagonal is included for comfortable nighttime viewing.
