Orion StarBlast 62mm Compact Travel Refractor Telescope

Get great views wherever you go with the portable Orion StarBlast 62mm Compact Travel Refractor Telescope! This high resolution refractor would be a great first telescope for any interested beginner; and its high quality, exceptional performance and compact size will complement any telescope in a more experienced hobbyists' collection of observing gear.

The first thing you'll notice about this petite performer when taking the StarBlast 62 out of its deluxe foam-lined hard carrying case is its exceptional build quality. This finely crafted refractor telescope is a joy to look at as well as look through! Extremely compact at just over a foot long with its lens shade retracted, the f/8.4 StarBlast 62 packs a ton of performance into its small telescope body.

This portable refractor can be used for almost any type of observing. During the day, insert the included 45° correct-image diagonal into the StarBlast 62 to make it a perfect deck telescope for scanning the scenic horizon or distant wildlife. It's great for catching sharp, detailed views of birds too! At night, the advanced 4-element, high resolution, fully multicoated optical design of the StarBlast 62 refractor will let you enjoy great views of the Moon and brighter planets like Jupiter and Saturn. Its substantial f/8.4 focal ratio provides sharp views of our planet's celestial neighbors in the night sky.

Since this compact refractor makes for a perfect travel telescope, you'll definitely want to bring it along on your next road-trip or camping expedition. From a dark sky site away from glaring city streetlights, the Orion StarBlast 62 yields amazing views of large, faint deep sky objects. Star clusters such as the Pleiades (M45) and the Double-Cluster of Perseus are beautifully framed by the StarBlast 62 when using the supplied 20mm eyepiece. Adding specialized filters like an H-Beta filter (sold separately) lets you track down more elusive deep sky objects such as Barnard's Loop. This small wonder is capable of showing you the entire list of Messier objects from an observing site with reasonably dark skies.

The 1.25" Crayford focuser of the StarBlast 62mm Travel Refractor accepts 1.25" telescope eyepieces and provides smooth, controlled focus adjustments for sharp, crisp views of any target. Use the included 20mm Plossl eyepiece to obtain wide, 26x views. The included 4mm Plossl eyepiece boosts magnification up to a whopping 130x for more powerful views through the 520mm focal length refractor telescope.

The StarBlast 62mm Compact Travel Refractor is very lightweight, tipping the scales at just 3.1 lbs. Mounting options for such a petite telescope are plentiful to say the least, and we've equipped the StarBlast 62 with a narrow (Vixen-style) dovetail mounting block that features a 1/4"-20 threaded socket for easy attachment to either dovetail-saddle equipped telescope mounts or standard field or photo tripods.  The included hard, foam-lined carry case will help keep the StarBlast 62mm Compact Travel Refractor safe and clean during transport, and it features cutouts for the included diagonal and eyepieces. A threaded T-adapter barrel is included for secure attachment of astrophotography accessories and cameras.

Equip yourself for on-the-go stargazing fun with the Orion StarBlast 62mm Compact Travel Refractor today!
