The SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian Telescope and Beginner Barlow Kit bundle isn't just a good bang for the buck, it's a supernova of value!

Classic Dob Chart

Our SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian gives you the deep-space thrills without the deep-pocket frills. We?ve kept it lean and mean to keep its price low for tight budgets. But rest assured, the XT10 Classic Dob come fully equipped for adventure, whether you're a beginning stargazer or are graduating to a more capable telescope. The XT10 Classic Dobsonian features an expertly figured parabolic mirror housed in an enameled steel optical tube. The tube rides on a stable Dobsonian base that allows easy point-and-view navigation and has a convenient carrying handle. A 2" Crayford focuser provides smooth, backlash-free focus adjustments so you can achieve a tack-sharp view each and every time. An Orion EZ Finder II reflex sight is included for easy aiming of the XT10 Classic Dobsonian reflector telescope. A 25mm Sirius Plossl telescope eyepiece (1.25") provides 48-power magnification. A quick-collimation cap is alos included so you can maintain the alignment of the reflector telescope's optics.

Setup takes only a minute, leaving the rest of the evening to marvel at the planets, the Moon, and a myriad of deep-sky treasures like galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters. Enjoy the fantastic views with the Orion SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian Telescope - and boost your viewing magnification with the included Beginner Barlow Kit!

A great combination of accessories for anyone beginning a hobby of amateur astronomy, the handy Beginner Barlow Kit includes the powerful Orion Shorty 2x Barlow Lens and the useful Orion Beginning Stargazers Toolkit. A 2-power (2x) Barlow lens is an extremely versatile eyepiece accessory that doubles the magnification of any eyepiece installed. For example, if you have a telescope with a 1200mm focal length, using a 25mm eyepiece will yield a view with 48-power magnification (1200 divided by 25). If you installed the same 25mm eyepiece into the Shorty 2x Barlow Lens and then inserted into the XT10's focuser, your viewing magnification would be increased to 96-power magnification (48 x 2). Barlows are great eyepiece accessories for beginning astronomers since they allow you to double the power of the eyepieces included with your telescope. They are a great and affordable way to add to your arsenal of viewing magnifications. What's more, the Orion Shorty 2x Barlow gets it's "Shorty" moniker from its compact size compared to other Barlow lenses, so it's easier to find a spot for it when packing your gear for a night under the stars.

With the included Orion Beginning Stargazer's Toolkit, you'll never be "lost in space!" It contains four items designed to help new astronomers find their way around the heavens.

1.    Orion Star Target Planisphere - Dial in your local date and time and it shows you the locations of the constellations and deep-sky objects in the night sky
2.    Discover the Stars - A wonderfully written and illustrated observer's guide
3.    Orion MoonMap 260 - Identify more than 260 craters and other lunar features with your telescope and this detailed map of the Moon. The correct-image MoonMap 260 is oriented to match the Moon as it appears to the unaided eye. Turning the map may be required to match the view seen in your telescope.
4.    Orion RedBeam Mini LED Astro Flashlight - Emits pure red light that won't spoil your night vision. Perfect for reading your planisphere or seeing what you're doing at the telescope.

The included Orion MoonMap 260 is a useful reference map of the Moon's surface that will help the whole family learn the names and locations of more than 260 craters, mountains, valleys, "seas" and other interesting lunar features you can explore with your telescope. Use the MoonMap 260 to identify craters you've observed, or use it before you go out with a telescope to plan a night full of Moon-watching family fun.
