Thanks to a generous gift from the Northwoods Explorers of Space and Astronomy (NESA), the Minocqua Public Library has a brand-new beginner friendly telescope available for checkout.

The telescope, an Orion StarBlast 4.5″ comes with attached “EZ Finder” scope, Celestron 8-24 mm zoom eyepiece, the National Audubon Society Pocket Guide: Constellations, Instruction manual, Lens Pen and accessories bag.


The telescope may be borrowed for one week by any Minocqua Public Library card holder eighteen years or older with a borrowing history of at least three months and an account in good standing. The telescope must be checked out and returned to the library during regular library open hours.


Thank you again to NESA for their generous donation. We hope this addition to the Minocqua Public Library’s collection will encourage community members to take an interest in the night sky. Happy stargazing!
