Orion StarBlast 4.5 Equatorial Reflector Telescope Other Equipment Used: 6mm Orion Expanse Telescope Eyepiece Notes: Jupiter one night...
Astro-images taken through a telescope on a tracking mount provide breathtaking color and detail that you just can't see with your eyes alone. The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope.
The Orion StarBlast 4.5 EQ Reflector is a perfect family telescope. The short focal length allows you to see more of the sky, which makes it easier for beginners to find objects. The adjustable tripod makes this a good choice for the whole family.
Compared to other 6mm telescope eyepieces, the 6mm Orion Expanse Eyepiece gives you a wider field perfect for detailed views of the moon, planets, and double stars. With long eye relief even eyeglass wearers can view the entire field of view.
