Orion SkyQuest XX14g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian Telescope Notes: This telescope travels to other locations, but is stored in the observatory, ready to use any clear night. The observatory was built in 1984, and has contained several scopes over the years. Primary usage had been astro-photography, but I've reverted back to an observer with this scope. I've been an observer since 1965.
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 Orion SkyQuest XX14g Dobsonian telescope is good for the advanced user wanting to see the best and brightest views of deep sky objects as well as planetary detail. Fully computerized GoTo telescope, and the trusses allow for a compact breakdown.
