condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: ORION
model name / number: STARBLAST 6
size / dimensions: LIGHT, SHORT
Excellent condition Orion StarBlast 6” f5 750mm focal length Newtonian astronomy telescope OTA (Optical Tube Assembly) with front cap, 1.25” collimation cap (also serving as a focuser cap), movement knob, finderscope or red dot finder shoe (neither included, we can talk about that if you don’t have it), rings and Vixen spec dovetail as shown.

Excellent views, tested, collimated (optical alignment) and used by me, a great little scope. Do your research, check out the reviews.

Regarding collimation any reflecting telescope will require occasional checking and adjustment of the angles of the mirrors. If you are not familiar with this please do your research (as in “collimation of a Newtonian telescope”) as it is required. A “collimation cap” and instructions for using it are included with the scope but a laser collimator (not included) is more accurate and much easier to do, taking about a minute.

Weighs about 11lbs so will work with a large variety of mounts that have a Vixen spec saddle. No mount included.

$175, price firm for now, thought I'd offer it locally before posting it on Astromart.

Cash only unless you have astro stuff of interest to me towards a trade. Local pickup/meetup in the Chico/Redding/Oroville area only, I won't ship this.

Use the CL email system to reply, put "Orion StarBlast" in the subject line and the same along with your name in the body of your reply or it will be ignored.

PS: I have been involved in amateur astronomy and dealing in astronomy equipment on a casual basis for 16 years, have had literally hundreds of scopes, mounts, eyepieces and accessories. Point is this is not just a garage sale find being flipped, this is being sold by a knowledgeable and experienced seller that has tested and used the equipment I offer for sale.
