The Orion SkyView Pro 100mm Extra-Low Dispersion Equatorial Refractor Telescope is a complete observing package featuring the extra-low dispersion 100mm apochromatic refractor optical tube assembly paired with the venerable SkyView Pro equatorial telescope mount/tripod — at an unprecedented low price.
The "ED100" delivers images remarkably free of chromatic aberration, thanks to its fully multi-coated 100mm objective doublet. It's crafted with one element of FPL-53 extra-low dispersion "ED" optical glass from Japan. The 100mm aperture gives it 56% greater light grasp than our ED80. And the 900mm focal length (f/9.0) excels at visual planetary and lunar study and imaging work as well.
With bright extra-low dispersion (ED) optics and a rock-solid mount, the Orion SkyView Pro 100mm ED EQ Refractor Telescope packs a lot of performance for the price!
Media BuzzAstronomy Magazine — April 2007"Optically, the 100ED is exceptional. The optics proved every bit as good as some other two-element ED apochromatic refractors costing significantly more."
