Orion Telescopes & Binoculars announces the Orion FunScope Astro Dazzle 4.5″ Reflector Telescope ($179.99). This 114-mm f/4.4 Newtonian reflector features a plate glass parabolic primary mirror in an eye-catching tube. Its rack-and-pinion focuser accepts 1¼-inch eyepieces and includes a pair of 25- and 10-mm Kellners that yield 20 and 50×, respectively. Its single-arm altazimuth mount produces smooth motion in both axes, and, combined with the EZ-Finder II red-dot sight, makes aiming the scope quick and easy. The telescope comes with a quick-collimation cap, a copy of MoonMap 260, and a free download of Orion’s Starry Night Special Edition software.
