Designed exclusively for astronomy, the reflector telescope is the workhorse of telescope designs, offering the most visual bang for the buck. Reflector telescopes collect and focus starlight with mirrors, which can be made in large sizes very economically. For deep-sky observing, an Orion reflector telescope is the way to go. Its big, precision-crafted mirror will reveal striking views of faint nebulas, galaxies, and star clusters — and resolve subtle detail on the planets and Moon, too. While reflector telescopes can be bulky and their mirrors require occasional alignment, their affordable prices and the breathtaking images they deliver make them the telescope of choice for many amateur astronomers.
