Orion SkyQuest XT4.5 Classic Dobsonian Telescope

Sky & Telescope Magazine December 2005 "When it comes to raw performance, the Orion XT4.5 Dobsonian was the hands-down winner. It provided brighter, more detailed views than the other scopes.Sky & Telescope Magazine April 2001"Tough-as-nails design .... well-designed optical system and quality accessories. The Orion Nebula showed lots of texture .... Lots of star groupings showed up crisply in the Double Cluster .... On Jupiter, we could see the Great Red Spot .... Saturn showed four moons, the Cassini Division .... and subtle zones on the globe."For those seeking that mythical ideal first telescope, your search may be over .... The SkyQuest [XT4.5] has set a new standard for the beginner's telescope."Now everyone with a curiosity for viewing celestial wonders can explore to their hearts' content! With an Orion SkyQuest XT4.5 Dobsonian Telescope stargazing is easy and fun. Its compact size, innovative design, and point-and-view simplicity make it the user-friendliest telescope for beginners to come along in years. Beginners ages 8 to 88, that is, because adults will also appreciate its portability and excellent optical performace!The Orion SkyQuest XT4.5's Newtonian reflector tube assembly features a big 4.5"(114mm) light-gathering mirror housed in an enameled steel tube. This mirror pulls in 260% more starlight than the lens of a 60mm refractor (the classic beginner telescope), bringing hundreds more objects boldly into view! Think of it: in a given evening you could survey the Moon's myriad craters, then study Jupiter's cloud bands, then star-hop among the Milky Way's diverse star clusters and nebulas. The SkyQuest XT4.5 Dobsonian Telescope is one very revealing telescope!]
