Product Description

One look at the Orion EON 110mm f/6.0 ED Apochromatic Refractor and its slick gloss-black machined optical tube and you'll know this is an exquisite telescope. This black beauty occupies a desirable sweet-spot for telescopes, especially if you're interested in deep-sky imaging or wide-field observing. The EON's generous, 110mm (4.3 inch) aperture gobbles up photons from faint deep-sky objects and offers ultra-crisp images and great color correction by virtue of the FLP-51 element of extra-low dispersion (ED) optical glass in its air-spaced doublet objective lens. The apochromatic refractor's 660mm focal length gives the EON 110mm ED a fairly fast, f/6.0 f-ratio which performs exceptionally well for wide-field visual use or deep-sky astrophotography. Not only is the EON 110mm ED Refractor a great wide-field performer, it's also delightfully compact and measures just 21.5 inch with its sliding dew shield retracted for easy transport. Unlike heavier, bulkier astrophotography telescopes, the EON 110mm ED needs only a medium-sized mount to support it. Take a closer look and you'll find even more to like about the EON 110mm ED. The refractor's optics are fully multi-coated for maximum light throughput so you'll get the most out of each and every photon collected by the telescope. The EON 110mm features a robust, 2.7 inch hybrid-drive rack-and-pinion focuser which outperforms most Crayfords we've used. The Orion EON 110mm f/6.0 ED Apochromatic Refractor Telescope comes with two very substantial hinged tube rings which each feature multiple, pre-drilled and tapped M6 holes along the top and bottom for convenient dovetail mounting plate attachment. An aluminum-clad hard carry case with a die-cut foam interior is included to keep the EON 110mm ED safe and clean during transport and storage. The hard case measures 28.25 inches x 9.25 inches x 9.5 inches.
