Orion StarBlast 4.5 Equatorial Reflector Telescope - $639
Wide-field optics, easy to use, the StarBlast EQ is an excellent starting set to see the stars, the Moon and more. It combines the much-heralded StarBlast wide-field (f/4.0) parabolic optics with a sturdy, adjustable-height EQ-1 equatorial tracking mount.
