Orion EON 115mm ED Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope
Mint Condition with Upgraded Losmandy Style Dovetail Plate
What you most likely don't know that this is the same scope as the Meade Series 6000 115mm f/7 scope made by the same company in China.
- A beautifully constructed, 115mm (4.5") aperture triplet ED apochromat ideal for both astrophotography and serious visual observations
- Fully multi-coated, three-lens ED optics and versatile f/7.0 focal ratio yields high-contrast images with excellent color correction and sharpness
- Rock-solid, rotatable 3" dual-speed (11:1) Crayford focuser provides precise focus control and stable support of imaging accessories
- Includes two split-clamp tube rings, narrow dovetail bar, thread-on metal objective cap, and a hard case with a custom die-cut foam insert for protection during transport and storage
- Relatively lightweight 15.2 lb. optical tube can be stably supported by medium-size equatorial mounts
- With exceptional optics, top-notch features and beautiful fit and finish, the Orion EON 115mm ED Triplet refractor telescope offers wide-field observers and astrophotographers an impeccably crafted, true-color instrument at a great price.
This premium refractor telescope's generous, 115mm (4.5") aperture collects ample light from faint deep-sky objects to provide crisp images with excellent color correction by virtue of the element of FK-61 extra-low dispersion ("ED") optical glass in its air-spaced triplet objective lens. The apochromatic refractor's medium 805mm focal length gives it a fairly fast, f/7.0 f-ratio which performs exceptionally well for wide-field visual use or deep-sky astrophotography. Multilayer anti-reflection coatings on every air-to-glass lens surface maximizes light transmission; while an extendable dew shield, blackened lens edges, and multiple internal knife-edge baffles eliminate off-axis reflections and glare to ensure excellent contrast.
A massive, 3" dual-speed (11:1) Crayford focuser provides precise, backlash-free focus control and easily supports heavy astrophotography gear. The rugged focuser's drawtube sports an engraved millimeter scale and focus-lock thumbscrew to aid in focus point repeatability - a great time-saver. The EON 115mm ED's focuser can be rotated in two places, allowing camera framing to be set independently from your preferred positioning of the telescope focus knobs. Non-marring brass compression rings in the 2" focuser drawtube and included step-down 1.25" adapter keep installed cameras, diagonals and other accessories free of scratches and thumbscrew gouges.
Not only is the EON 115mm ED Refractor a great wide-field performer, it's also conveniently compact and measures just 27.75" with its sliding dew shield retracted for easy transport and storage in the included 30.5" long foam-lined hard carry case. Unlike heavier, bulkier astrophotography telescopes, the relatively lightweight, 15.2 lb. EON 115mm optical tube needs only a medium-sized equatorial mount to support it.
The EON 115mm refractor telescope features a dovetail finder scope base for use of optional aiming devices or Mini Guide Scopes. A thread-on metal objective lens cap, a narrow "Vixen-style" dovetail mounting bar and two heavy-duty hinged tube rings with multiple, pre-drilled and tapped M6 holes along the top and bottom are included.
If you're looking for an exquisitely constructed "apo" refractor that can achieve amazing results for both astrophotography and serious visual observing, the versatile Orion EON 115mm ED Triplet is an ideal choice.
