Two included Sirius Plossl eyepieces

Use both of the included eyepieces to alternate between lower and higher-power views of interesting objects in the sky. We recommend starting with the 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece to obtain wide, 30x views. This lower power makes it easier to scan the night sky for objects to explore. Then for closer looks, you can boost the power all the way up to 75x by using the 10mm Sirius Plossl telescope eyepiece for more magnification.

Orion EZ Finder II red-dot sight

Following a simple alignment procedure, you can use the EZ Finder II sight to accurately aim the StarBlast 6 IntelliScope at objects in the sky. This is especially useful when calibrating the IntelliScope object location system and centering alignment stars. Once the EZ Finder II is lined up with the telescope, just turn on the sight and peer through its circular viewing window and move the telescope until the red dot is on the target object or star.

IntelliScope Object Locator

The StarBlast 6i IntelliScope’s Object Locator hand controller will tell you exactly where to point the telescope to see any of over 14,000 celestial objects within its database. Simply select the object you wish to view using the IntelliScope controller’s menu buttons, then follow the directional arrows on the controller’s display screen to aim the telescope right at the desired object.

Built-in navigation knob

The StarBlast 6i IntelliScope Reflector’s enameled steel reflector optical tube boasts a handy “navigation knob” for easy slewing, or re-positioning of the telescope. To aim the StarBlast 6i, or point it to a different target, simply take hold of the navigation knob near the front opening of the reflector tube and gently move the telescope up or down and left or right as desired. Not only does this handy knob make slewing easy, it also helps keep the tube itself nice and cool in temperature for optimal viewing performance.
