SpaceProbe 3 Telescope
OUT OF STOCK
Lightweight and Easy To Use with Awesome Views
Not your average TOY scope!
Astronomy enthusiasts seeking an affordable astronomical adventure will get it in spades with the SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope. Great for UFO hunting and all-around astronomical observing, this highly portable, uncomplicated telescope is just the right size and weight for all family members, and just the right price.
Built around a 3" (76mm) diameter primary mirror, the Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope also gathers enough light to snare the faint glows of some very exotic star clusters and distant nebulas! The SpaceProbe 3’s focal length of 700mm (f/9.2) provides sharp views of cosmic curiosities.
The aluminum Newtonian reflector optical tube features a 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser to ensure sharp images in the telescope eyepiece. It includes two interchangeable 1.25” Explorer II telescope eyepieces, a 25mm and a 10mm. The 25mm eyepiece will yield 28x power magnification in the SpaceProbe 3 while the 10mm eyepiece boosts the magnification up to 70x power. A wide-field EZ Finder II reflex sight is also included to aid in locating objects and aiming the telescope. An adjustable-height tripod with accessory tray and aluminum legs is also included. The Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope comes with an altazimuth mount which allows simple up/down and left/right motion.
