I am an amateur and this scope is great for me without spending a fortune.
Jerry Ingram
I found the assembly challenging, although the assembly instructions are well written and illustrated.

The moons looked like diamonds and you could tell the larger from the smaller moons.

The Star Blaster is an excellent starter/intermediate scope. I under estimated how large it was going to be but it is still very portable and has all the features you would expect. Both the secondary and primary mirrors are adjustable and the primary mirror's center is clearly marked. It does require assembly especially the Intelliscope function which might require additional wood screws from the hardware store. The Intelliscope function required calibrating to two stars but gives you a choice of which stars. I would recommend assembling the scope and playing with it before trying to install the Intelliscope function as this takes some time and should not be rushed by a desire to use the scope as soon as possible. The scope can be disassembled to install the Intelliscope in just a few minutes. The Intelliscope does not move the scope you have to do this manually but it does track the movement of the scope and displays left/right, up/down arrows and coordinate numbers that increase and decrease depending on where the scope is pointing.

I love the scope. I am an amateur and this scope is great for me without spending a fortune. We have been looking at Jupitor and its four moons. We have seen orions nebula.

The base is a little wobbly and cheaper than I would have liked.

I bought this telescope and set it up.. and the first night I had a chance to use it... I was blown away at my view of Jupiter and it's 3 brightest moons. It looks like a bright circle at first when focused, but after a few seconds I could see the lines in it. The moons looked like diamonds and you could tell the larger from the smaller moons. I viewed it through the 10mm eyepiece they sent.

The assembly tooks some time but it is well made and the instructions are relatively clear. I am a as amateur as they come at this. But I was quite blown away at how amazing the view was. I just ordered the barlow in hopes of getting a more zoomed look. But this thing is really impressive!

Great Job Orion... I really enjoyed that.

Get it, you won't be sorry

We love it. Assembly a snap and it came collimated. There were only two bright stars to choose from so we set the finder to them. finding other stars was uneventful. Can't wait till we get this out to the desert..

I bought this, after much research on line. Everyone every where online spoke of how easy and quick it was to put together, but I beg to differ. Our base was not pre-assembled and it took my poor husband, who is really good with tools and directions, well over 4 hours to put together. After we got over that ordeal, we were fortunate enough to have a nice clear night to take it out for a look. My kids are still working out the kinks due to not properly reading the directions on how to use telescope , but we were able to view some distant planets or stars. Will probably need to order some better eye pieces as well. Over all Id call the company you order this from and make sure that the base at least is preassembled before they ship it out to you, and read the instruction good before taking it out for a spin !
