Overview of the Orion EON 110mm ED F/6.0 Apochromatic Refractor Telescope – Orion Telescopes
One look at the Orion EON 110mm f/6.0 ED Apochromatic Refractor and its slick gloss-black machined optical tube and you'll know this is a beautiful telescope. This black beauty inhabits a desirable sweet-spot for telescopes, specifically if you're interested in deep-sky imaging or wide-field observing. The EON's generous, 110mm (4.3 inch) aperture gobbles up photons from faint deep-sky things and provides ultra-crisp images and terrific color correction by virtue of the FLP-51 element of extra-low dispersion (ED) optical glass in its air-spaced doublet objective lens. The apochromatic refractor's 660mm focal length offers the EON 110mm ED a relatively quick, f/6.0 f-ratio which performs extremely well for wide-field visual use or deep-sky astrophotography. Not just is the EON 110mm ED Refractor a fantastic wide-field entertainer, it's also wonderfully compact and determines simply 21.5 inch with its sliding dew guard retracted for simple transportation. Unlike heavier, bulkier astrophotography telescopes, the EON 110mm ED requires only a medium-sized install to support it. Take a closer look and you'll find even more to like about the EON 110mm ED. The refractor's optics are totally multi-coated for optimal light throughput so you'll get the most out of each and every photon collected by the telescope. The EON 110mm includes a robust, 2.7 inch hybrid-drive rack-and-pinion focuser which exceeds most Crayfords we've utilized. The Orion EON 110mm f/6.0 ED Apochromatic Refractor Telescope comes with two really significant hinged tube rings which each feature numerous, pre-drilled and tapped M6 holes along the top and bottom for convenient dovetail mounting plate attachment. An aluminum-clad difficult carry case with a die-cut foam interior is included to keep the EON 110mm ED safe and clean throughout transport and storage. The difficult case measures 28.25 inches x 9.25 inches x 9.5 inches.
