"...I propose great things for inspection and contemplation by every explorer of Nature," wrote the famous astronomer Galileo Galilei in 1610 after probing the heavens with his crude, self-made telescope. Those "great things" he mentioned are still up there, ready for today's budding astronomers young and old to inspect and contemplate. You can see them for yourself with an Orion Observer 60, which, believe it or not, is a far more capable telescope than Galileo ever had!

The Observer 60 is a classic refractor with precision glass optics and great portability. It's a complete backyard telescope package that includes the optical tube, all accessories, and an aluminum tripod. It is especially popular with younger astronomy enthusiasts.

The Sights You'll See
You'll be surprised at the celestial sights you can see with an Observer 60. Saturn and its rings, Jupiter and its dancing moons, and the changing phases of Venus, for starters. Close-up views of the Moon's rocky, cratered surface. The contrasting blue and gold gems of the double star Albireo. And dozens of "deep-sky" gems, including the magnificent Orion Nebula and the glittering Pleiades and Beehive star clusters.

The Observer 60 telescope offers higher quality and more reliable performance than department store refractors. Ours features an aluminum tube and all-glass optics, including a fully antireflection-coated 60mm achromatic objective lens for crisp, bright images. It comes with two eyepieces: quality 25mm and 10mm Kellner oculars with 1.25" barrels, instead of inferior .965" barrels.

Also includes a 90° mirror diagonal, EZ Finder II, altitude fine-control arm, and aluminum tripod.
