The Orion SkyQuest™ XT4.5 is a great choice for young stargazers. Unlike most telescopes in its price range, the XT4.5 is easy to setup, easy to use, stable, and provides great views of planets and deep-sky objects. Dobsonian telescopes are very intuitive to use, and give the most bang for the buck, avoiding the frustration that comes with many inexpensive beginner's scopes.
The SkyQuest™ XT4.5 includes two standard-size (1.25" diameter) eyepieces, allowing any standard telescope accessories such as filters and Barlow lenses to be used. The XT4.5 is sure to produce views of the universe that will inspire youngsters and adults alike!
