Now everyone with a curiosity for space can explore its wonders to their hearts’ content. With an Orion SkyQuest XT4.5 Classic Dobsonian reflector telescope stargazing is easy and fun for the whole circle of relatives. Its portable size, innovative design, and point-and-view simplicity make it an extremely user-friendly telescope for beginners and intermediate stargazers alike. The Orion SkyQuest XT4.5 Classic Dobsonian’s Newtonian reflector tube assembly features a big 4.5″ (114mm) diameter light-gathering mirror housed in an enameled steel tube. This spherical primary mirror pulls in 260% more starlight than the lens of a 60mm refractor (the classic beginner telescope), which means that this telescope can give you and your circle of relatives with views of hundreds of more objects! The 4.5″ Classic Dobsonian is a smart telescope for surveying the Moon’s many craters, valleys, and mountains. It is rather long focal length and f/8 focal ratio provides well-defined views of Jupiter’s cloud band “stripes” and nearby Galilean moons, to not mention Saturn and its awe-inspiring rings. This telescope isn’t limited to only view objects in our solar system. The SkyQuest XT4.5 Classic Dobsonian is a smart telescope to use whilst star-hopping a few of the Milky Way’s diverse star clusters and nebulas.
