Reserve a Telescope!

The Salem Public Library telescope lending program uses the Orion StarBlast 4.5-inch Astronomical Telescope along with a zoom eye piece and supportive material. The telescope is easy to use and is robust. There is nothing to assemble. It has a wooden base, not the usual spindly tripod legs. The telescope is of manageable size, but has a relatively large optical tube. This means that the Moon and deep sky objects will show far more detail than one could see with the common "beginners" telescopes. It also has a large field of view that allows the object to stay in the eyepiece longer. This is a quality instrument, reviewed by a number of astronomical publications and found quite worthy.

The sky is the limit with this program so click here and reserve this telescope today!
