Upcoming astronomy enthusiasts seeking an entrée to astronomical adventure will get it in spades with an Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope.

Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope
The Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescopes make the night sky's treasures accessible right from the backyard. They will reveal Saturn's picturesque rings, Jupiter's moons, and the incredibly cratered terrain of our own Moon's surface. Their 3"-diameter (76mm) primary mirror also gathers enough light to snare the faint glows of some very exotic star clusters and nebulae!
The aluminum Newtonian optical tube features a 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser to ensure sharp images in the telescope eyepiece. Speaking of which, each telescope now comes with two interchangeable Explorer II telescope eyepieces (1.25")—25mm (28x) and 10mm (70x)—as well as a wide-field, EZ Finder II to aid in locating objects. An adjustable-height tripod with accessory tray and aluminum legs is also included standard.
The Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth Reflector Telescope comes with an Altazimuth mount. The altazimuth mount is lightweight and easy to use with simple up/down left/right motions. (The SpaceProbe 3 is not recommended for terrestrial viewing as the images will not be right-side up.)
For the novice keen to discover what's "out there," the affordable Orion SpaceProbe 3 Altazimuth reflector Telescope provides a wonderful opportunity! Focal length 700mm (f/9.2). One-year limited warranty.
