The Astronomy Club of Asheville has donated some 4.5-inch Orion StarBlast Reflector Telescopes (f/4.0; 450mm FL) to the Asheville-Buncombe County Library System for use by the community as loaners. You do not have to be a member of this club to “check-out” these telescopes. However, you must have a valid library card and be 18 years of age or older to check these telescopes out of the library. Younger members of the community may have one of their parents check the telescope out for them under their supervision.
These are fine beginner, astronomical telescopes that will display some of the wonders of the Moon, the planets, and the stars to the patient and inquiring user.
The Astronomy Club of Asheville is proud to be the sponsor of this community telescope loaner program and to be partnering with the Asheville-Buncombe County Library System.
