Orion StarBlast 4.5 Eq Reflector

Orion StarBlast 4.5 Eq Details

The StarBlast 4.5 equatorial mount telescope sports a small price tag of $220 but that doesn't mean this scope lacks in features.

It comes with a couple of eyepieces, 15mm (x30) and 6mm (x75) from Orion's Expanse range plus their red-dot finderscope.

The Starblast comes with an equatorial mount enabling you to follow your viewing object as it crosses the night sky by simply using the slow motion cable. An electrical motor is an optional extra.
