The Orion SkyQuest XT6i is my first telescope (received as a gift three years ago) - a perfect choice for getting started in visual astronomy... quick and easy to use, with plenty of power. This image of Ganymede's transit of Jupiter was captured from my backyard in Newark, Delaware on December 27, 2013 shortly after 11pm EST. Light pollution here is terrible, but the seeing on this night was the best I had seen.
