Orion Eon 104mm (4.1\") ED-X2 APO Refractor Telescope OTA

Unlike most ED triplets which are made with just one ED glass element, this beautifully crafted apochromatic refractor stands above ordinary triplets since it features one element of FPL-53 ED glass and one element of FPL-51 ED glass. The Orion EON 85mm ED-X2 refractor provides superior correction of chromatic and spherical aberrations, delivering impeccable visual views and razor-sharp astrophotos without any color fringing or loss of clarity.

The EON 104mm ED-X2 sports a big, 2.7" hybrid-drive rack & pinion focuser features dual-speed (11:1) controls to easily fine-tune focus, and can support imaging gear trains weighing up to 17.6 lbs. You can rotate the focuser 360° to optimize imaging or observing convenience. The focuser has a built-in focus lock knob, and a step-down 1.25" adapter makes the EON 104mm ED-X2 compatible with either 2" or 1.25" size accessories.

The 104mm EON ED-X2 refractor measures 650mm in focal length with a fast f/6.25 focal ratio for great wide-field performance. Multiple internal baffles prevent off-axis reflections for excellent contrast, while a retractable lens shade helps eliminate glare and dew buildup. Weighing in at 14.6 lbs. with all included accessories installed, the lightweight EON 104mm ED-X2 matches well with many medium-size mounts for astrophotographic or observational performance.

The Orion EON 104mm ED-X2 f/6.25 Triplet Apo Refractor comes with a thread-on objective lens cover, two heavy-duty machined tube rings, a sturdy machined dovetail bar for easy mount attachment, and a dovetail finder scope base (installation required). An included hard carry case with a custom die-cut foam insert ensures safe transport and convenient storage of the telescope and all included accessories.

This exceptional refractor will satisfy even the most demanding astrophotographers and observers. With gloss-black machined construction, and attractive satin-red features and accessories, the Orion EON 104mm ED-X2 telescope is a truly gorgeous astronomy instrument.
