The Orion StarSeeker IV 102mm GoTo Mak-Cass 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. Featuring a compact Maksutov-Cassegrain optical tube with an extra-long, 1300mm focal length and f/12.7 focal ratio, the StarSeeker IV 102mm GoTo Mak-Cass is relatively lightweight for easy transportability. Following a simple two-star alignment process, the Orion StarSeeker IV 102mm telescope can guide you to interesting sights on any clear night with their GoTo database of over 42,000 objects. A built-in “Tour” mode feature makes it easy for anyone to explore the wonders of starry skies, no matter how familiar or unfamiliar you are with the night sky. 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 102mm will not lose its GoTo alignment if you move the reflector telescope tube manually. The StarSeeker IV GoTo mount and its slanted, single-arm altazimuth design provides attached telescopes with 360-degrees of azimuth motion and 90-degrees of altitude motion for horizon-to-zenith pointing. A quick-release narrow dovetail saddle makes telescope attachment nice and easy. The StarSeeker IV 102mm features an upgraded cylindrical leg stainless steel tripod that is much sturdier than previous models. Tripod stability is further enhanced with the dual-purpose spreader plate/accessory holder, which keeps the tripod rigid and provides a handy area for stowing idle eyepieces and accessories. Includes GoTo hand controller, 23mm (57x) and 10mm (130x) wide-field 60-degree eyepieces, 90-degree diagonal, EZ Finder II sight, and more.

  • Flexible Dew Shield for Tubes with with 123mm +/-5mm such as Orion, Skywatcher, Celestron, Meade 102mm Maksutov
  • dewcaps are constructed of black ABS plastic and are all felt lined for maximum absorbtion of moisture and baffling of stray light.
  • Suitable for tubes from 105 mm diameter to 145 mm diameter, like SkyWatcher or Orion Maksutov-Cassegrains with 90 mm or 102 mm, also Meade ETX 105, Celestron C-4, or smaller refractors
  • Ideal for the transport – the dew shield can be placed space-saving around the tube.

The cap is attached by wrapping it around your telescope just below the front lens or corrector plate ring. The two outside ends are then pressed together using the sewn on velcro. A rubber strip is supplied that must be attached along the bottom of the dewcap where there is no felt. This provides a friction fit so that the dewcap stays in place once attached. It also allows enough room to attach one of our heaters around the corrector plate ring on the inside of the dewcap.
