Our SkyQuest XT4.5 is a quality telescope, with point-and-view simplicity that makes it easy to use and makes stargazing fun! The optical performance is far and away better than flimsy department store models. Its 4.5" (114mm) mirror, housed in an enameled steel tube, gathers 260% more starlight than a 60mm refractor. More light means you can see a lot more celestial objects in greater detail. In a review of low-cost beginner telescopes, Sky and Telescope (12/05) proclaimed the XT4.5 "The best of the bunch - a solid combination of optics and mechanics." Try it and see for yourself! This bundle includes the crowd-pleasing Orion XT4.5 Classic Dobsonian and our Orion Beginner Barlow Kit for powerful performance! The included Beginner Barlow Kit is a great combination of accessories for anyone beginning a hobby of amateur astronomy and includes the powerful Orion Shorty 2x Barlow Lens, as well as the useful Orion Beginning Stargazers Toolkit.
