Product Description & Reviews
Powerful enough to split close double stars, resolve bright globular clusters, or look an eagle in the eye, Orion's Apex 102mm is both a fine astronomical instrument and an unparalleled terrestrial spotting scope. The Apex's 102mm-diameter (4") optics collect 28% more light than a 90mm scope. The fully multi-coated curved front meniscus lens guarantees the highest possible light transmission. The Maksutov-Cassegrain design collapses its 1300mm (f/12.7) focal length into a tube length less than 12" long. The Apex 102 tube easily pops on and off a telescope mount or camera tripod with the built-in 1/4"-20 adapter plate, and doubles as a high-power telephoto lens. Just mount a 35mm camera body (with T-ring sold separately) to the T-threads on the eyepiece holder and you're set! Includes 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece, 6x26 finder scope, 45-degree correct-image diagonal, and fully padded case.
Features & Highlights
- Compact Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope provides great views during day or night
- 102mm (4") aperture and 1300mm focal length telescope provides fantastic celestial views of the Moon, planets, and bright deep-sky objects, as well as terrestrial views of wildlife and scenery
- A telescope small enough to store on a bookshelf but with the power of traditional scopes five times its size!
- Includes a 25mm Sirius Plossl 1.25" eyepiece, 6x26 correct-image finder scope, 45-degree correct-image diagonal, soft carry case, Starry Night software, and more!
- Does not include tripod or mount - either can be purchased separately

This ''ST'', or ''Short Tube'', version of the SpaceProbe 130 reflector is indeed more compact than the standard model. The 130ST reflector optical tube measures 24'' long compared to 33'' on the standard 130. The focal length of the ST's 130mm (5.1'') primary mirror is 650mm (f/5), yielding a wider field of view and brighter images for a given telescope eyepiece focal length. The 130mm aperture primary is a diffraction-limited parabolic mirror, the same type used on much larger reflector telesc

Some of the most picturesque celestial objects are too large to fit in the field of view of an imaging refractor and camera. What's more, most objects in deep space are very faint and therefore challenging to image without taking very long exposures, increasing the potential for error. Our new Orion 0.8x Focal Reducer for Refractors addresses these obstacles by increasing your refractor telescope's field of view while reducing the effective focal length by a factor of 0.8x, thereby providing a s

Focusing a telescope by hand can cause the image to shake or even move completely out of the field of view, especially at high magnifications. But with the AccuFocus electronic focuser, those annoyances are a thing of the past. Using the pushbutton hand controller you get smooth, precise focusing, without vibration. Choose any speed from coarse to very fine. The DC motor installs easily and works with many Orion telescopes. It's powered by one 9-volt battery (included) in the hand controller. Br
