Here is a fun and compact telescope that’s sure to inspire the whole family’s natural inclination to explore. The Orion StarBlast 4.5 Astro Reflector Telescope will impress you and your family with its high-quality construction, hassle-free operation, and space-penetrating optical performance. Beginning astronomers will enjoy hours of fun under the stars with the StarBlast 4.5. Its optics are so good it’s also a very popular choice for more experienced stargazers wanting a “grab-and-go” alternative to bulkier mounted models that require more setup time and maintenance. With its big 4.5″ aperture parabolic primary mirror, the StarBlast 4.5 will wow the whole family with gorgeous wide-field views of the night sky. Fascinating craters and mountains on the Moon pop out in crisp detail. The planetary giant Jupiter with its orbiting moons and Saturn with its stunning rings will have you gazing in awe. And from a dark sky you will study wondrous sights of bright galaxies, distant cloudy nebulas, and sparkling star clusters. Set the compact StarBlast 4.5 on the ground, on a table in the back yard, or even on the hood of your car in the backcountry, and comfortably view the heavens to your heart’s content. Thanks to its modest stature, the StarBlast 4.5 makes a great “take it with” telescope for road trip adventures, camp-outs, and just hitting the local park. The telescope swivels smoothly on its sturdy altazimuth base for point-and-view ease of use. A cutout in the base’s side panel makes a perfect carrying handle. The whole telescope comes pre-assembled right out of the box! Outfitted with a great set of accessories, including quality 20mm and 10mm 4-element eyepieces that serve up 22.5x and 45x magnification, an EZ Finder II “red dot” reflex sight, an Orion glare-cutting Moon filter, and Orion’s MoonMap 260 reference map for identifying features on our nearest celestial neighbor.
