The Orion BX90 EQ 90mm mid-size refractor telescope is a great choice for serious beginners.
The wide-field optics of the BX90 EQ Refractor makes it easier to find objects in the night sky compared to longer telescopes. The refractor’s substantial 90mm (3.54″) objective lens collects much more light than typical starter scopes for brighter, more pleasing performance on a wide variety of interesting celestial objects.
The included EQ-1C equatorial mount comes with useful slow-motion controls which can be used to manually track objects as they appear to move across the sky. You can even add an optional EQ-1CM motor drive (sold separately) for hands-free tracking.
This special kit comes with everything you need to star stargazing right away. Two 1.25″ eyepieces provide different magnification options right out of the box. Use the included 25mm Kellner for wide views at 24x magnification, and boost magnifying power up to 60x with the 10mm Plössl eyepiece when you want to take a closer look. The Orion BX90 EQ Refractor Telescope also includes a 90° star diagonal for comfortable nighttime viewing and a red-dot sight to help aim the telescope. The included Moon Map and Moon Filter will enhance your lunar viewing experience, and the Barlow Lens will double the power of your included 1.25? eyepieces. The Orion Star Target Planisphere will help you learn the location of popular celestial objects.
Once assembled, the entire BX90 EQ weighs 15.5 lbs. for easy portability.
