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.
I bought the 2x barlow lens, and that gives me additional range of magnification, which made up for the tiny 6 mm. I also bought a solar filter, and for $30 I can use the telescope during the day. It's lots of fun to look at the sun and sunspots. I'm even able to hold my phone near the eyepiece to take pictures.
