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 XT8 Classic has features for both beginners and experienced stargazers. Its large aperture will help you see more. Its stable base glides easily and gives you total control to point at any celestial object. All for an affordable price.
