Customer Reviews 1 item(s)
The Scope is impressive, the eyepiece and diagonal are good, but the finder scope is total junk. The finder scope bracket can be adapted to a laser pointer and the bracket itself is standard and will accept regular Orion finder scopes. Overall, this scope is a very good buy for both astronomy or spotting use.

Product QuestionsQuestion by: Jim on Oct 2, 2015 2:30:00 PMHi Jim,
Yes, the scope does use 1.25" eyepieces. We can order the scope for you. We don't have it in stock
right now. We do have the same telescope in stock, just an astronomical version but you can easily
put on an attachment to make it fit on a tripod if you want to use it as a spotting scope. If you
need any more information, please call me at 800-483-6287.Answer by: Steve Thornton (Admin) on Oct 2, 2015 5:24:00 PM
