Item #  24731e

A popular classic is now easier to use than ever before. With the computerized GoTo system, pushing a button or two is all it takes to find any one of over 42,000 celestial wonders. Internal stepper motors slew the telescope at up to 3.4 degrees per second right to your target, placing it directly in the eyepiece's field of view. Using the intuitive menus on the hand controller, you will see more incredible sights than you ever dreamed possible. It will even take you on a guided tour of the best sights each month. A simple two-star or three-star initial alignment is all that's needed to begin easy, accurate GoTo operation. The telescope features an 8"(203mm)parabolic primary mirror, which collects 73% more light than a 6" scope, to take you way beyond the Messier catalog! And for the Moon and planets, the SVP 8's 1000mm focal length (f/4.9) gives you the ability to resolve fine detail at high power. Includes 2" rack-and-pinion focuser with 1.25" adapter, an 8x40 finder scope, and two Sirius Plossl eyepieces. The stalwart SkyView Pro equatorial mount and steel tube tripod provide a stable platform that's so smooth you'll think the telescope is floating on air. The GoTo system requires an external 12-volt power source like the Orion Dynamo Pro. Some assmebly is required. One year limited warranty.
