Orion Atlas 10 EQ-G Reflector w/ GoTo Controller
Nights under the stars will never be quite the same with the Orion Atlas 10 EQ-G. They'll be much, much more rewarding. This scope's big 10" optics and newly engineered mount will show you what big-telescope performance is all about.
The Orion Atlas 10 EQ-G Reflector's magic starts with the optics. The Atlas 10 features a 254mm (10") parabolic mirror made from premium Pyrex low-expansion glass for superior thermal stability. The upgraded 2" Crayford-style focuser has a 1.25" adapter to accommodate either size of eyepiece; a 1.25" 26mm Sirius Plossl comes standard, as does a 9x50 finder scope.
Then there's the mount. The beefy Orion Atlas EQ-G provides stable support and motorized dual-axis control, courtesy of dual internal stepper motors that slew the scope at up to 3.4° per second and track with exceptionally low periodic error. With this GoTo version, you can visit any of 13,000+ celestial objects with pushbutton ease.
Backlash compensation in both axes and programmable periodic error correction (PEC) provide the precision required for astrophotographic guiding with the Orion Atlas EQ10, either manually or with an autoguider via the autoguider port in the drive base. The adjustable-height tripod has large 2"-diameter stainless steel tubular legs, making for a highly sturdy support system.
You will need an external 12-volt DC power supply field battery, or an AC-to-DC adapter to run off of 110-volt AC. Two-year limited warranty.
