About this product

  • An ideal entry-level reflector telescope with 100mm parabolic primary mirror optics - no plastic lenses as found in some other telescopes made for beginners
  • See hundreds of craters on the Moon, detail on Jupiter and other planets, even when viewing from relatively bright city locations
  • A tabletop telescope big enough to find and observe objects in the night sky, but small enough to easily store in a closet or display on a desk
  • Perfect reflector telescope for wide-angle, low-power viewing of the Milky Way and other deep sky objects when viewing from relatively dark skies
  • Includes two 1.25" telescope eyepieces: 20mm (for 20 power magnification) and 10mm (for 40 power magnification), EZ Finder II aiming device, Starry Night astronomy software, and more!

Although perfect for beginning stargazers, this tabletop reflector telescope is not a toy! With its substantial, 100mm aperture parabolic primary mirror boasting a 400mm focal length, the compact Orion SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector telescope will amaze you and your family with gorgeous, detailed views of the night sky.

With this capable reflector, you can study the Moon's cratered surface in detail, exploring highland mountains and vast, planar lunar "seas" of dark material. Bright planets like Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars shine bright in the SkyScanner 100mm Reflector, even when viewing from urban locations with mediocre seeing conditions. On especially clear evenings when viewing from areas with dark skies, the pint-sized Orion SkyScanner telescope can gather enough light for views of open and globular star clusters, bright cloudy nebulas, and even a few distant galaxies.

The Orion SkyScanner 100mm TableTop Reflector is just the right size - large enough to see night sky objects yet compact enough to sit on a desk. Thanks to its small stature, the SkyScanner is a great grab-and-go telescope for visual adventures as close as the backyard table, or as far as your favorite remote dark sky site. More experienced amateur astronomers can use the easily portable SkyScanner 100mm Reflector as a quick-draw alternative to more complicated setups.

Perfect starter scope

Very good starter scope. I've tried a cheap scope about 15 years ago and wasn't impressed and it made me lose interest . This time i did some research first and im very happy with this little scope. Easy to manoeuvre and find your way in the sky . Next step is to buy a lens kit .

Good Service.....to a point!

Great service from Alex with the online sales chat, but sadly there was a stock issue with the last one left. I said I’d have it, but it got sold elsewhere prior to. With no further supply for 6 months, I’ll have to shop elsewhere, sadly.

Great telescope for price

Only complaint was that contents was on the outside of the box which spoiled the surprise present inside!
