Item #  05780

For owners of the SkyQuest XX16g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian telescope, we offer this suggestion: Let's roll! That's right, with the Orion Wheel Kit for the XX16g, you can roll the fully assembled SkyQuest XX16g GoTo Dobsonian telescope from your garage to the yard or driveway and back with ease.

This minimalist portability solution for our largest GoTo Dobsonian telescope features 10" pneumatic wheels and 35", lock-in "wheelbarrow"-type handles that make it easy for one person to move the big XX16g to and from your favorite observing spot in the yard. This streamlined design is much more convenient and compact than bulky carts or dollies, and the big 10" pneumatic wheels help absorb shock as you roll the SkyQuest XX16g Dobsonian over pavement, dirt or lawn. 

Once included heavy-duty handle brackets are installed on the XX16g telescope base, the Wheel Kit can be attached and detached quickly without having to hassle with tools. With the steel handles and wheel assemblies attached, just lift the handles and roll the entire telescope like a wheelbarrow to your favorite observing or storage destination. There's no need to break down the optical tube or base into more-manageable component pieces just to move the telescope short distances! Once you've rolled the telescope to your destination, the handles and wheels can be detached quickly - again, without any tools - then set aside so they won't be in the way while you stargaze. All attachment hardware is conveniently captive, so you won't lose anything in the dark.

The XX16g Dobsonian base is conveniently pre-drilled at the factory for installation of the Wheel Kit. Wheel struts and handles are made of powder-coated steel for strength and durability. All hardware is included. Weighs 24 lbs. total.
