Orion offers quality telescopes for youngsters that are easy to use and will inspire their natural inclination to explore. The StarBlast™, pint-sized in stature, is a real reflecting telescope that's super-simple to use and yet manufactured with the kind of quality you'd expect in more expensive models.
The StarBlast™ is a point-and-view telescope that swivels smoothly on its sturdy, low-profile base. It comes pre-assembled and ready for action right out of the box! Just carry it outdoors by its built-in handle, place it on the ground or on a picnic bench, and let the fun begin!
Inside the StarBlast's aluminum tube are quality telescope optics, including a 113mm (4.5") parabolic mirror. Kids will see spectacular views of the Moon's craters, the planets, star clusters, and lots of other exotic space stuff. Aiming the StarBlast™ is easy with the EZ Finder II "red dot" finder scope. One-year limited warranty.
