Product description

The StarBlast telescope:

With this telescope, Orion offers an upmarket and yet inexpensive way of getting started in amateur astronomy. The high-quality reflector is available with various mounting options, ranging from a simple Dobsonian, through parallactic with aluminium tripod up to the IntelliScope version with Object Locator. The telescope has a short focal length and so can cover a wide area of the night sky, allowing you to find many objects quickly and easily.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • powerful reflector
  • good value for money
  • widefield optics

Dobsonian table top mount: stable base, extremely portable

Are 'normal' telescopes just too big for you, or are you looking for a compact instrument in particular? Dobsonian table top mount telescope makes the perfect companion as you can transport the instrument all in one piece.

Onto the table and you're ready to go

Operating the mount could not be easier, just place the telescope on a table or elevated platform.

The mount moves easily in all directions on its smooth Teflon bearings. There is no aligning necessary with this telescope: after setting it up, just line it up on an object and you will find it easy to track it, whilst marvelling at the sight of whichever planet or nebula you have in the eyepiece.

Get to know the stars

This well thought-out Dobsonian mounted telescope also has another advantage: by locating each object yourself you will get to learn the night sky much better and gradually make yourself an expert.

The Orion Object Locator allows you to quickly find more than 14,000 pre-programmed objects in the night sky. Firstly, the telescope is set up for the site you are at by using a simple alignment routine. The destination target is then selected from the library of objects by using the illuminated hand controller and the telescope is manually moved by following the directions given by the Object Locator - which appear as arrows displayed on the screen. Within a very short time you will have pointed your telescope at the object selected and you will be able to see it in the field of view of the eyepiece.

You can choose the targets by type (e.g. planets, nebulae, clusters, galaxies) or by catalogue number (e.g. M57, NGC253). Another way is to choose one of the 12 pre-programmed tours, which will show you the most interesting objects to be seen during the current month. The reverse is also possible: if you stumble on an interesting object during one of your excursions in the night sky that you cannot identify, the Object Locator can tell you what it is: If you press the ID button, you will immediately receive current information about what you are seeing, including the type of object, its name, its size and the constellation it is in. The Object Locator turns your telescope into a flexible instrument that will provide even beginners with long-lasting pleasure.

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

Our expert comment:

This telescope is not used on the ground, but is instead placed on a table or a similar elevated platform.
