Please Note

Orion has made the difficult decision to close our warehouse facility in the Netherlands. With the continuing supply chain/logistics challenges and slowness in the economy we have found that it is not economically feasible to maintain operations in the UK and Europe.

We have therefore stopped taking orders on this website. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We will continue to have Orion dealers in Europe to meet the needs of Orion consumers. We will also continue to honor the 30-Day product return period as well as honoring the Orion warranty for purchases made in the UK and Europe.

Our US-based Customer Service Representatives are here to help. Contact them via email at support@telescope.com or in the United Kingdom, via phone at 0-800-041-8146 (Monday-Friday between the hours of 1300 and 2400 GMT).

Now even casual telescope users can enjoy the benefits of zoom eyepiece technology. A simple twist of the barrel of the affordable E-Series Zoom eyepiece changes the focal length from 21mm to 7mm, or to any focal length in between. That makes it ideal for locating an object at low magnification, then quickly zooming in to higher magnification for closer inspection, all without changing eyepieces! Actual magnification range will depend on the focal length of your telescope, but as an example: in an Orion SkyQuest 8" Dobsonian reflector with a 1200mm focal length, this eyepiece provides a continuous magnification range of 57x-171x. And the E-Series Zoom works equally well for astronomical or terrestrial viewing in smaller refractor or Cassegrain design telescopes.

This 6 element telescope eyepiece boasts fully multi-coated optics and exceptionally long eye relief ranging from 18mm (at 21mm) to 16.3mm (at 7mm). The apparent field of view angle ranges from 40 (at 21mm) to 57 (at 7mm). The 1.25" barrel is threaded for standard eyepiece filters. A very nice value in a quality zoom eyepiece!
