The Orion SkyView Pro 8 Equatorial Reflector Telescope has long been admired for outstanding optics and a rock-solid mount. The telescope features an 8" (203mm) parabolic primary mirror, which gives you a whopping 73% more light grasp than a 6" telescope. And more light means brighter, sharper images. You can go way beyond the Messier catalog with this telescope! And for the moon and planets, the Orion SkyView Pro 8's 1000mm focal length (f/4.9) gives you the ability to resolve fine detail at high power.

Other features include an upgraded 2" Crayford-style focuser with a 1.25" adapter and focus lock knob, an 8x40 finder telescope, and two Sirius Plössl telescope eyepieces (25mm and 10mm). It even has a center mark on the primary mirror for easy collimation! The stalwart Orion SkyView Pro Equatorial mount and steel tube tripod provide a stable platform that's so smooth you'll think the telescope is floating on air.

This standard, non-computerized configuration of the Orion SkyView Pro 8 Equatorial Reflector Telescope can be upgraded to GoTo capability at any time.
Product Specifications:
Use  Astronomy 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.
