Product Description & Reviews
If your interest in amateur astronomy includes both observing and astrophotography, you need a telescope that's up to the task - like the Orion Atlas 8 EQ-G GoTo Reflector Telescope. It's an 8" aperture reflector with precision parabolic mirror optics with a precise heavy-duty GoTo equatorial mount, perfect for both visual and photographic forays into deep space. The reflector telescope is built around its 203mm (8") diameter parabolic primary mirror which has a focal length of 1000mm (f/4.9) and is center-marked for easier, more accurate collimation. The versatile combination of 8" aperture and 1000mm focal length is excellent for visually studying a wide variety of celestial objects, from relatively nearby planets to distant galaxies, and the f/4.9 focal ratio is plenty fast for deep-space CCD astrophotography. Speaking of the mount, the brawny Orion Atlas EQ-G GoTo mount and tripod provides incredibly stable support, thanks to its solid construction and 2"-diameter stainless steel legs, which adjust in height for optimally comfortable use. With the GoTo Atlas EQ-G telescope mount, you can visit any of over 42,000 celestial objects with pushbutton ease. You get a host of great accessories with the Orion Atlas 8 EQ-G GoTo Reflector Telescope. An 8x40 achromatic finder scope lets you find objects to explore and aim the telescope precisely. A high-quality 1.25" 25mm Sirius Plossl telescope eyepiece is included for visual use of the telescope right out of the box. The 25mm telescope eyepiece yields 40x power magnification through the Atlas 8, which is ideal for general scanning of the heavens. The Orion Atlas 8 EQ-G GoTo Reflector Telescope tube assembly features a deluxe 2" Crayford-style focuser with a 1.25" adapter, allowing use of either 2" or 1.25" eyepieces as well as other accessories. The Atlas EQ-G mount requires an external 12-volt DC power supply or an AC-to-DC adapter to run off of household 110-volt AC, all sold separately.
