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
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.
