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 StarBlast 6 is a great telescope for the whole family. Its portable design allows you to use the reflector just about anywhere, and it packs away easily for storage and transport. Good for both planetary and deep sky observations.
