the wife and I were trying to figure something out that would be educational and possibly something the whole family could enjoy. Looking outside one evening at the sky, it hit me, a telescope! I had one 30 years prior, so I had an idea of what to look for.
After a few days of light research, the Orion StarBlast seemed to be a good telescope to go with. I was leaning towards a refractor telescope initially, but this Orion was about $100 more than the one I was looking at. It came in a giant box, we wrapped it up, and my son was genuinely surprised and excited when he opened the gift.
Nothing much to assemble. Only tough part was lining up the sight but the little red dot made it fairly easy.
After sitting through Sunday's super blood moon lunar eclipse for 3 hours, I realized that even after the kids leave for college, I'll be able to personally enjoy this for years to come. They loved watching the eclipse as did my wife and had loads of questions. The two lenses that come with it are excellent. I do plan to order the recommended Barlow lens in the future though. Looking forward to looking at planets now.
I was able to line up my lens with my iPhone for some pics. Took some work but it was fun.
This scope came with 6mm and 17mm Kelner eyepieces. Supposedly these are not as good as Plossl, but I haven't had enough experience to tell the difference. I did buy a 2x and a 3x Barlow lens to increase the zoom of the default lenses. What was I able to see? On the first night I used the scope, I saw Jupiter with 3 of its moons and Saturn with its rings. Saturn was very clear and much better than I expected to ever see with an entry-level scope. Randomly scanning the sky resulted in all sorts of interesting star formations that I couldn't see with the naked eye. For reference, I am in a coastal city in Southern California with lots of light pollution.
I noticed that the 17mm lens with either the 2x or 3x Barlow is perfectly clear as can be. The 6mm lens can be either clear or hazy depending on the weather. I suspect that the extreme zoom (75x by itself, 150x with 2x Barlow, 225x with 3x Barlow) pushes the limits of what can be seen through our atmosphere from a light-polluted city. In any case, I am hooked on astronomy so I'll get some Plossl lenses and see if it improves the view at higher zoom levels.
From what I understand, this is a good reflector telescope for wide views - looking at constellations and deep sky objects. For viewing planets, you will probably want a refractor type telescope. That's my understanding, anyways. This unit comes with a table-top mount and red dot finder, which is super easy to use once calibrated. I find myself wanting a tripod type mount for better portability, but this is fine for using on a table in the backyard.
