Orion SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope Dobsonian Telescope
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Phone Other Equipment Used: 12.31" ID Orion Full Aperture Solar Filter
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.
For safe viewing of the sun through a telescope you need a solar filter. The 12.31" ID Orion Full Aperture Solar Filter provides better contrast and more durability than a Mylar filter. This filter fits 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes.
