The optical performance is far and away better than flimsy department store models. Its 4.5" (114mm) mirror, housed in an enameled steel tube, gathers 260% more starlight than a 60mm refractor. More light means you can see a lot more celestial objects in greater detail, from Saturn's rings and Jupiter's cloud belts to hundreds of star clusters, nebulas, and galaxies.
The XT4.5's sturdy "Dobsonian" base features Teflon/Nylon bearings, so the tube glides effortlessly up and down, left and right. The XT4.5 package includes a 6x26 correct-image finder scope and two fully coated 1.25" Sirius PlÃÂ¶ssl eyepieces. One year limited warranty.
