Orion StarSeeker IV 114mm GoTo Reflector Telescope
The StarSeeker IV 114 mm (4.49-Inch) Aperture GoTo Reflecting 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 compact reflector optical tube with a short, 500 mm focal length and fast f/4.4 focal ratio, the lightweight StarSeeker IV 114 mm Reflector collects light with its 4.5-inch aperture, parabolic reflecting optics for bright, wide-field views. The entire telescope setup weighs just 18-pounds for easy transportability.
Following a simple two-star alignment process, the Orion StarSeeker IV 114 mm telescope can guide you to interesting sights on any clear night with its GoTo database of over 42,000 objects. A handy, built-in "Tour" mode feature of the included GoTo hand controller makes it easy for anyone to explore the wonders of starry skies, no matter how familiar or unfamiliar you are with the night sky. Once the StarSeeker IV 114 mm GoTo Reflector locates a target for you to explore, the single-arm alt-azimuth mount's internal motors will automatically track the object's apparent motion and keep it centered so you can enjoy the view as long as you wish.
This fourth generation StarSeeker telescope features dual optical encoders on each axis of motion which allow you to move the telescope tube either manually by hand, or electronically by using the directional arrows on the GoTo hand controller. Thanks to this impressive upgrade, the StarSeeker IV 114 mm will not lose its GoTo alignment if you re-position the reflector telescope tube manually, or accidentally bump into a tripod leg during an observing session. To save time, battery life, and reduce motor wear, you can manually point the telescope towards the general area of a target object, then engage the tube lock and use the hand controller to let the GoTo mount finish the fine-centering of the object electronically.
This complete GoTo telescope setup includes a thorough assortment of useful accessories:
The StarSeeker IV GoTo mount and its slanted, single-arm alt-azimuth design provides attached telescopes with 360-degree of azimuth motion and 90-degree of altitude motion for horizon-to-zenith pointing. A quick-release narrow dovetail saddle makes telescope attachment nice and easy. The StarSeeker IV 114 mm features an upgraded cylindrical leg stainless steel tripod that is much sturdier than previous models and adjusts in height for comfortable use. Tripod stability is further enhanced with the included dual-purpose spreader plate/accessory holder, which keeps the tripod rigid and provides a handy area for stowing idle eyepieces and accessories.
Since the StarSeeker IV 114 mm Reflector can locate and track celestial objects with its motorized GoTo system, you can use it along with a camera or smartphone to take impressive pictures of the night sky. Capture stunning snapshots of the Moon, planets and more by attaching a dedicated astrophotography camera, or a combination of an Orion SteadyPix accessory and your own point-and-shoot camera or smartphone to the StarSeeker IV 114 mm to explore the rewarding hobby of astrophotography. (Cameras and SteadyPix accessories sold separately.)
Each StarSeeker IV telescope is powered by 8 user supplied internally stored AA batteries. A 12V DC auto-lighter plug is included for use of optional 12V DC field batteries.
