Orion SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope Dobsonian Telescope
Panasonic Lumix 16x Other Equipment Used: Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount Notes: I ended up taking approximately 30 shots of the lunar eclipse. Conditions were a little breezy, but the sky was very clear. Really captured the reddish shadow using the Orion xt10i Intelliscope.
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.
Looking to expand your viewing power? The XT10i mirror gathers 56% more light than the XT8i, allowing you to view fainter objects. As with the XT8i, this telescope allows you to locate more than 14,000 celestial objects with the push of a button.
