The whole family will want to join in the fun for great views of the Moon, bright planets, and star clusters seen through the SpaceProbe II 76mm Reflector. The included EQ-1B equatorial mount is specifically designed for stargazing at night. The mount's slow-motion controls make it easy to track objects as they appear to move across the night sky.

    The accessories included in this value-packed telescope kit have been selected to enhance your stargazing experiences.

    2x Barlow

    Use the included Orion Shorty 2x Barlow Lens to double the magnifying power of included eyepieces.

    A 2-power (2x) Barlow lens is an extremely versatile telescope accessory that doubles the magnification of any eyepiece installed. Using the included Shorty 2x Barlow with the 10mm eyepiece in the SpaceProbe II 76mm Equatorial Reflector bumps its viewing power from 70x to 140x, and boosts the 25mm eyepiece's magnification from 28x to 56x when used with the telescope. What's more, you can use the compact Shorty 2x Barlow with any other 1.25" eyepieces you already have, or any you purchase in the future.

    MoonMap 260

    The Orion MoonMap 260 makes it easy to locate and learn about interesting features on the Moon.

    With locations and names of over 260 features on the Moon such as craters, mountains, valleys, "seas" and more, the included Orion MoonMap 260 is a great tool for beginning astronomers. This detailed map will even show you where various spacecraft have landed on the Moon's surface! The whole family will enjoy looking at the Moon with the SpaceProbe II 76mm reflector telescope, then discovering the names of the craters and other features you've seen in the telescope.

    Star Target

    The Orion Star Target planisphere is a useful star chart wheel for any day of the year.

    This circular star map lets you dial-in the month and day you're observing the sky, so you can see exactly which constellations and stars will be visible if skies are clear. Using the Orion Star Target is a great way for starters to plan their first stargazing sessions with the SpaceProbe II 76mm reflector, since you'll know just where to point the telescope!

    OTOG

    The Orion Telescope Observer's Guide book will introduce you to the wonders of the night sky.

    This book will help you explore amazing celestial objects including planetary, emission and reflection nebulas; double and multiple stars; open and globular star clusters, the Andromeda Galaxy, and more. With a full page of information dedicated to each interesting object, author Richard J. Bartlett leads you on a detailed tour of the night sky as he describes over 60 fascinating astronomical objects that can easily be seen with a small telescope.

    RedBeam Mini

    Use the RedBeam Mini LED flashlight to see in the dark without disrupting dark-adapted vision.

    You don't need a big flashlight to read star maps or see inside your accessory case at night. The included 2.5"-long Orion RedBeam Mini Flashlight does the job perfectly, emitting night-vision friendly red LED light. Red light won't disrupt your eyes' dark-adapted vision, so this flashlight lets you check charts and accessories while keeping your eyes primed for viewing celestial gems through the SpaceProbe II 76mm reflector telescope. Includes batteries and a handy key-ring.
