I posted this once before in a different thread. While maybe not quite yet a classic it is a discontinued and highly regarded telescope. Plus it was a bit of a shocker since I own one.

 

An Orion Eon, or could possibly be a Skywacher Equinox, figures prominently in the movie Skyline from 2010. It is shown numerous times and is used by the characters throughout most of the movie. There is no doubt about it, the black scope with chrome trim rings is a dead giveaway. Check it out if you get the chance. The movie isn't that great but it is syfi and seeing the telescope made it worthwhile.
