This special package for the Skyline 8" Dobsonian Reflector Telescope includes all of the top notch features of our base 8" Skyline Dobsonian Reflector Telescope AND is loaded with great features and a deluxe set of performance enhancing accessories, including:

Deep Map

Use the Orion DeepMap 600 to enhance your celestial discovery.

Full-color star map of the night sky with clearly indicated positions of 600 of the finest celestial objects to view. Star chart conveniently folds up just like a road map for easy storage and transport. Orion DeepMap 600 shows the night sky from declination +90-deg to -60-deg. Back of chart lists essential data for all 600 objects of interest, including a brief visual description of each object - an ideal reference for beginners and advanced observers alike! Printed on dew-proof plastic for durability in the field, even in damp conditions

The Orion UltraBlock is the ideal eyepiece filter for deep-sky observers located at highly light-polluted sites.

Narrowband filter blocks all forms of light pollution. Enhances the presence of a significant number of fainter deep-sky objects

The Orion Variable Polarizing eyepiece filter acts like a dimmer switch for your telescope,

to tone down brightness and accentuate contrast of bright celestial objects. Gives you much finer control of the image brightness compared to a standard fixed-transmission telescope eyepiece filter for optimal performance. Adjust the amount of light transmission from 1% to 40% by rotating the eyepiece filter housing

Four vital Orion guides to the most popular planets to observe in telescopes.

Use the Orion Moon Map 260 to learn more about the lunar features you see in the telescope. With locations and names of over 260 features on the Moon such as craters, mountains, valleys, "seas", and more. Use the included Mars Map and Observing Guide to learn all about the red planet and how to obtain the best views. Learn helpful tips and facts about the largest planet in our solar system with the included Jupiter Map and Observing Guide. Explore the ringed planet like never before with the included Saturn Map and Observing Guide. Plastic-laminated for durability, each included Map and Observing Guide measures 25.25" x 11" when fully unfolded, and folds up to 8.5" x 11" for easy portability.

Take smartphone pictures of the view through your telescope with this SteadyPix Telescope adapter.

Quick and easy self-centering eyepiece clamp provides fast installation. Provides a stable platform for your smartphone to yield stable, clearly focused snapshots. Compatible with even the biggest modern smartphones as large as 3-3/4" wide. Twist-lock eyepiece clamp compatible with telescope, binocular, and microscope eyepieces measuring 25-45mm in diameter

With an assembled weight of 54 lbs., the SkyLine 8" Dobsonian is a big telescope that promises big and bright views. The 45.25" long telescope optical tube can be separated from the Dobsonian base quickly for easy, two-component transport.
