Orion StarBlast II 4.5 EQ Reflector & AstroTrack Motor Drive
This winning combination of our wide-field StarBlast II 4.5 f/3.9 EQ Newtonian Reflecting Telescope and AstroTrack Motor Drive is a complete telescope setup ideal for any backyard astronomer who wants to enjoy the benefits of motorized tracking with a wide-field optical instrument. This delightfully compact, easily portable telescope unites the much-heralded parabolic optics of the Orion StarBlast II 4.5-Inch wide-field (f/3.9) reflector telescope with our sturdy EQ-1 equatorial tracking mount and the cable-free AstroTrack motor drive.
The (114 mm) 4.5-inch aperture reflector telescope's short focal length serves up a generous chunk of sky in the eyepiece, making it easy for beginners to find celestial objects to study. The combination of short 450 mm focal length and sizable 4.5-inch aperture means the StarBlast II 4.5 will provide brighter views at any magnification compared to longer focal length telescopes, which makes it easier for everyone, especially beginners, to locate interesting sights in the night sky.
Observations of everything from the Moon to Messier objects appear exceptionally sharp and rich in contrast through this petite f/3.9 reflector telescope. The adjustable-height aluminum tripod allows you to set the StarBlast 4.5 Equatorial Reflector up for comfortable views, while remaining lightweight so the entire assembled telescope is easy to transport to and from your favorite stargazing location. A useful accessory tray provides a convenient storage spot for idle eyepieces and other accessories.
If you're looking for an exceptional beginner telescope on a stable mount with slow-motion tracking control, or if you're seeking a second telescope that's more portable than your big "light bucket", then get an Orion StarBlast II 4.5 Equatorial Reflector Telescope. Trust us, you'll have a blast!
