Astro-images taken through a telescope on a tracking mount provide breathtaking color and detail that you just can't see with your eyes alone. The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope.
The SkyQuest XT10 is a very affordable intermediate Dobsonian. The stable base and the attached EZ Finder II make it easy to move the telescope and find objects. The XT10 allows you to view objects brighter and in more detail than the XT8.
The SkyQuest XT10 classic reflector has features for both beginners and advanced users. It has a huge aperture, the stable base glides easily to give you total pointing control, and this package includes a Barlow and Beginning Stargazer's Toolkit.
The Orion Build-A-Scope 10 Classic Dobsonian is perfect for the advanced viewer that wants to navigate the sky on their own. You can choose your favorite focuser, finder scope and eyepiece for a fully customized telescope to fit your needs.
