Orion’s SkyQuest XT4.5 is the smallest of their XT-series Dobsonians. While arguably my least-favorite scope in the XT line, the XT4.5 has a number of features that make it appealing, particularly to children.
Overview Of Orion SkyQuest XT4.5
Unlike most other tabletop scopes the XT4.5 is tall/long enough that it doesn’t necessarily need a table, per se. Small children can use it without raising the scope at all, and most kids and adults can elevate the scope to a proper height for seated use with just a milk crate (which is also ideal for transporting accessories) or a suitably flat/steady bench, chair, bar stool, or rock.
