Not only does the Orion SkyQuest XX14g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian feature exceptionally large 14-inch diameter optics, but its Orion-designed collapsible GoTo Dobsonian base and truss tube make the XX14g conveniently portable, since you can break the entire telescope down into bite-size component pieces. The optical tube and base both separate into smaller components — without tools. Once broken down, everything fits easily into even a compact car, for the trip to your favorite dark-sky site. Stability of the assembled XX14g Dobsonian base is enhanced by its 1-inch thick composite wood base panels, which are laminated with water-resistant black melamine. GoTo and tracking motors are pre-installed on the base panels, making assembly nice and easy. Since all base and truss tube hardware is captive, you don’t have to worry about leaving a screw behind after a long night of viewing in the field. WARNING! When using a truss tube Dobsonian for solar observing, always use a Light Shroud and a properly sized solar filter. Make sure there are no gaps between the Shroud and the telescope where direct sunlight can reach the mirror, otherwise eye injury or damage to the telescope can occur. Before using any telescope for solar observing, install protective covers on all optical components. Glancing through an uncovered optical system can cause permanent eye damage. Always install protective caps on all optical instruments if left out during daylight hours.
