This compact, large-aperture Orion 120mm F/5.0 Refractor Telescope Optical Tube is perfect for deep-sky pursuits. Its 120mm (4.7"), multi-coated achromatic telescope lens assembly and modest 600mm focal length combine to provide breathtaking wide-field views. With an optional 25mm Plossl telescope eyepiece, this telescope serves up a sprawling 2.1-deg swath of sky! The fast f/5.0 optical system also makes it an excellent telescope for astrophotography. The 26"-long optical tube is well baffled to ensure good contrast. The cast-metal 2" rack-and-pinion focuser accommodates either a 1.25" or 2" diagonal, so you can use 1.25" or 2" telescope eyepieces. Tube color is gunmetal gray metallic. A mounting base molded into the focuser casting to accept an optional Orion finder scope or EZ Finder II. Sold as tube assembly only without accessories. Includes objective lens cap. One-year limited warranty.
Product Specifications:
Use  Astronomy and terrestrial close × Telescopes can have multiple uses depending on their design. Refractors and Cassegrains can provide a "correct-image" view, so they can be used for daytime land viewing as well as astronomy. Reflectors render the image upside down so they are not recommended for daytime viewing. This is not an issue for astronomy, however, because there's no "right-side up" in space.
User level  Intermediate close × Beginner - Telescopes suited for beginners are easy to use and maintain. Very good optical and mechanical quality. A great first telescope that will show you the moon and planets.

Included Items:
Optical tube assembly
2" - 1.25" eyepiece adapter
Dust cap
