Item #  10019

The Orion SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope Dobsonian Reflector telescope entertains amateur astronomers worldwide by virtue of its dazzling optics, contemporary design, and most exciting of all, the ability to locate any of more than 14,000 fascinating celestial objects with pushbutton ease! Our big, 10" diameter IntelliScope Dobsonian features an expertly figured 10" (254mm) parabolic mirror with a long, 1200mm focal length (f/4.7). The reflective optics gather 56% more light than an 8" mirror, allowing you to view stars as faint as magnitude 15. This is truly a Dobsonian telescope of a lifetime.

With the Orion SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope Computer Controller, locating and viewing even the most elusive deep-sky curiosities becomes a "no brainer." Just select an object to view from the controller's 14,000+ object database. High-resolution, 9,216-step digital encoders integrated in the telescope then pinpoint the object and provide you with simple left/right and up/down directions so you can gently push the telescope to your specified target. Using the "push-to" XT10i IntelliScope helps you learn the night sky more quickly than motorized GoTo systems, since you are actively involved in slewing the telescope to the correct viewing position. Additionally, the "push-to" SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope Dobsonian runs on a single 9V battery cell for hours, which is a lot less power than more costly motorized GoTo systems require. You can use the handheld IntelliScope Computerized Object Locator to choose from dozens of additional menu options, including tours of the best deep-sky gems each month and identification of any object in the field of view. Oh, so that's the Cat's Paw Nebula!

The steel optical tube of the Orion SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope, finished in an attractive deep bronze metallic enamel, is equipped with a 2" cast aluminum Crayford-style focuser for smooth, backlash-free focus adjustments. The XT10i IntelliScope's Crayford focuser is more accurate than a rack-and-pinion design focuser. Roller bearing construction eliminates image shift due to drawtube "rocking". Upgraded metal focusing knobs with rubber grips give you a great feel, and a thumb screw for locking the focus position and adjusting tension give you greater control. The focuser includes an adapter for 1.25" telescope eyepieces, so you can use 2" and 1.25" eyepieces easily.

The XT10i IntellIScope Dobsonian features a built-in navigation knob on the reflector telescope tube for easy slewing. A big, 9x50 finder scope is included to help precisely aim the telescope. Two included telescope eyepieces, a 25mm and 10mm Sirius Plossl, provide you with views of 48x and 120x respectively. Right out of the box, you can survey wide swaths of sky using the 25mm eyepiece, then boost up the power to 120x for closer looks with the 10mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece. A handy 2"/1.25" eyepiece rack is also included so you can keep any idle eyepieces at the ready. 

We've streamlined the XT10i IntelliScope's rock-stable Dobsonian Telescope base and upgraded it with a springless CorrecTension system that ensures smooth manual tracking control and optimal tube balance. Bearings molded from ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene and non-stick PTFE material provide silky smooth motion of the telescope on both axes. An ergonomic handle on the base makes it easy to transport to your favorite stargazing site, whether it's in the backyard, or far off in the hills.
