The Orion StarBlast 102mm Travel Refractor delivers big resolution, whether you're plumbing the night sky for celestial treasures or observing a scenic mountainscape in daytime. For the beginning telescope user or family looking for a capable telescope that is as easy to take on trips as it is to use right from home, the StarBlast 102mm is hard to beat. It is a quality 102mm (4") achromatic refractor telescope outfitted with a full-length stainless steel tripod and two-way pan head as well as a host of great accessories -- all of which fit neatly into a rugged carry case for convenient transport and storage.

For stargazing, this telescope will reveal outstanding views of the Moon's surface, Saturn's rings, Jupiter's cloud bands, and scores of deep-sky nebulas and star clusters. The 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser ensures your observing target will snap into sharp focus effortlessly. The StarBlast 102 comes with a correct-image 90-degree diagonal that provides a correctly oriented view - a must for terrestrial observation. The included 25mm (24x) and 10mm (60x) Plossl eyepieces are a giant leap in quality above the lower-end eyepieces that come with most competing telescopes. That means you'll get sharper, higher-contrast views with the StarBlast 102mm Travel Refractor! Also standard is a red-dot finder scope, which makes it easy to zero in on targets of interest.

The sturdy, extendable tripod is made of stainless steel and has a center brace for added rigidity. A convenient accessory tray fastens onto the center brace with a simple twist-lock mechanism. The two-axis pan head provides easy, smooth control of the telescope via the pan handle. Maximum eyepiece height is 51.5" with tripod legs fully extended.

And everything fits neatly inside the rugged carrying case, which sports both hand straps and a shoulder strap so it's ready to travel whenever you hit the road or the hiking trail. And if all that weren't enough, we also include Orion's MoonMap 260. It will help you identify some 260 of the most popular lunar surface features including craters, mountain ranges, valleys, rilles, "seas" and more!

To enhance your viewing experience even more, this Kit includes all of the accessories from the base model (10283) plus an Orion Shorty 2x Barlow Lens, Orion RedBeam Mini LED Flashlight, Orion Star Target Planipshere, and the 174-page Orion Telescope Observer's Guide.

OTOG book

The Orion Telescope Observer's Guide book will introduce you to the wonders of the night sky.

This book will help you explore amazing celestial objects including planetary, emission and reflection nebulas; double and multiple stars; open and globular star clusters, the Andromeda Galaxy, and more. With a full page of information dedicated to each interesting object, author Richard J. Bartlett leads you on a detailed tour of the night sky as he describes over 60 fascinating astronomical objects that can easily be seen with a small telescope.

star target

The Orion Star Target planisphere is a useful star chart wheel for any day of the year.

This circular star map lets you dial-in the month and day you're observing the sky, so you can see exactly which constellations and stars will be visible if skies are clear. Using the Orion Star Target is a great way for starters to plan their first stargazing sessions with the StarBlast 102mm Travel Refractor Telescope, since you'll know just where to point the telescope!

Double the power of any 1.25" telescope eyepiece with the Orion Shorty Barlow Lens.

Doublet lens system is multi-coated for excellent transmission and the internal housing is baffled to eliminate unwanted reflections and increase contrast. Threaded for use with 1.25" Orion telescope eyepiece filters.

flashlight

Use the RedBeam Mini LED flashlight to see in the dark without disrupting dark-adapted vision.

You don't need a big flashlight to read star maps or see inside your accessory case at night. The included 2.5"-long Orion RedBeam Mini Flashlight does the job perfectly, emitting night-vision friendly red LED light. Red light won't disrupt your eyes' dark-adapted vision, so this flashlight lets you check charts and accessories while keeping your eyes primed for viewing celestial gems through the StarBlast 102mm Travel Refractor Telescope. Includes batteries and a handy key-ring.
