Product Description

Orion StarSeeker IV 130mm GoTo Reflector without Controller

Orion's StarSeeker IV 130mm GoTo Reflector Telescope presents a winning combination of motorized object-location technology and great optical performance at an unbelievably low price. This smart GoTo telescope will lead you and your family on a guided tour of the stars on any clear night.

Featuring a parabolic primary mirror with moderate, 650mm focal length and f/5.0 focal ratio, the versatile StarSeeker IV 130mm Reflector collects loads of light for bright, wide-field views. The entire telescope setup weighs just 21.5 lbs. for easy transport, whether you're heading out to the sticks or just to the backyard.

The included Orion StarSeeker IV GoTo Mount boasts a state-of-the-art object location system that makes finding celestial objects in the night sky easy and fun. The mount is now offered without the SynScan Hand Controller to both save you money and let you control your telescope wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet using the FREE SynScan Pro app. The SynScan Pro app is available for iOS and Android devices.

(NOTE: The StarSeeker IV GoTo Mount is compatible with the SynScan hand controller, which is available for purchase as an optional accessory, should you prefer a dedicated, cabled handset over controlling your telescope wirelessly by smartphone or tablet. Find it under "We Also Suggest" at right.)

The free SynScan Pro app boasts a database of over 10,000 deep-sky objects, so you will never run out of fascinating celestial gems to observe and study! Once you select and locate an object from one of the SynScan Pro app's intuitive object menus, the StarSeeker IV GoTo Mount's dual servo motors will automatically track the object's motion across the sky to keep it in your instrument's field of view. Even a novice stargazer will quickly learn how to explore the heavens with this high-tech mount and app in just a couple of sessions. One really cool feature: the "Tour" mode identifies the best objects visible at the time you're observing and will lead you right to them!

  • Let this clever computerized reflector and its big, 130mm (5.1") optics guide you to bright views of everything from the Moon and planets to deep-sky targets like nebulas and star clusters
  • The mount is Wi-Fi enabled to allow wireless control from any iOS or Android smartphone or tablet using the FREE SynScan Pro app. (Optional wired hand controller is available for purchase, if desired.)
  • Huge GoTo database of thousands of objects, and Tour mode takes you to the night's best objects one by one!
  • After an object is selected, the StarSeeker IV locates and tracks it automatically so you can relax and enjoy the view
  • Includes 23mm (28.2x) and 10mm (65x) wide-field 60-degree eyepieces, EZ Finder II reflex sight, MoonMap 260, DeepMap 600 star chart, and more!
