There are many reasons why the Orion SkyQuest XT10 Classic is one of our most popular Dobsonian reflector telescopes. Three of these reasons rise above the rest: simple operation, jumbo optics, and bang-for-your-buck value. These three features come together elegantly in the XT10 Classic Dobsonian, making it one of the best telescopes to own for anyone interested in astronomy. The SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian brings a “new level of joy to simple observing” as Astronomy magazine raved, thanks to its synthesis of big aperture optics and uncomplicated operation. It’s jumbo, 10″ (254mm) diameter parabolic primary mirror gathers a ton of light from the night sky, so you can see more objects than you would with an 8″ or smaller telescope. What’s more, the XT10 Classic Dobsonian reflector telescope’s big mirror yields exceptionally bright views with high contrast. All XT Classic Dobs feature an expertly figured parabolic mirror housed in an enameled steel optical tube. The tube rides on a stable Dobsonian base that allows easy point-and-view navigation and has a convenient carrying handle. A 2″ Crayford focuser (XT6 has 1.25″ rack and pinion focuser), EZ Finder II aiming device, 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece (1.25″), and quick-collimation cap are all standard equipment. Setup takes only a minute, leaving the rest of the evening to marvel at the planets, the Moon, and a myriad of deep-sky treasures. Enjoy the fantastic views – and savings! One-year limited warranty.
