Features:

  • This clever push-to computerized Dobsonian reflector telescope can lead you to more than 14,000 celestial objects with its included IntelliScope Object Locator
  • Big 10" (254mm) aperture reflector telescope gathers loads of light for bright views of nebulas, galaxies, star clusters, and close-up study of the Moon and planets
  • Stable support provided by the wooden Dobsonian telescope base and CorrecTension adjustment knobs keep the telescope optical tube balanced in any viewing position
  • Simple Dobsonian point-and-view ease of use plus IntelliScope smarts equals a reflector telescope for a lifetime
  • Includes 2" Crayford focuser, two 1.25" Sirius Plossl telescope eyepieces (25mm and 10mm), a 9x50 right-angle correct-image finder scope, eyepiece rack, collimation cap, and Starry Night software

Take a "push-to" tour of the heavens with the included IntelliScope Object Locator.

The SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope's Object Locator hand controller will tell you exactly where to point the telescope to see any of over 14,000 celestial objects within its database. Simply select the object you wish to view using the IntelliScope controller's menu buttons, then follow the directional arrows on the controller's display screen to aim the telescope right at the desired object. Or, you can press the Tour button to select one of 12 tours of the best objects visible in any given month.

Dial-in celestial details with the smooth and accurate 2" Crayford focuser.

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" and ensures all focus adjustments are smooth, accurate, and virtually free of backlash and flexure, even with heavier 2" accessories installed. A removable 1.25" adapter allows use of both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces and accessories.

Aim your XT10i comfortably with the included 9x50 Right-Angle Correct-Image Finder Scope.

A big, 9x50 right-angle correct-image finder scope is included to help precisely aim the XT10i telescope. The finder scope's eyepiece is oriented 90ø from its objective lens, so you can aim the XT10i without having to contort your neck to see through the finder. The finder's correct-image view makes it easy to navigate across the night sky to zero in on interesting targets and accurately center alignment stars.

Use the navigation knob to slew the XT10i IntelliScope from target to target.

The XT10i IntelliScope's enameled steel reflector optical tube boasts a handy "navigation knob" for easy slewing and repositioning of the telescope. To move the telescope, simply grasp the navigation knob near the front opening of the scope and gently move the tube up or down and left or right as desired.

Begin your night sky explorations with the included 25mm Sirius Plossl Eyepiece.

The included 1.25" Orion 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece provides a 48-power view when used with the SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope reflector. Using this eyepiece's moderate magnification is a great way to begin exploring interesting objects in the sparkling night sky. Offering a wide 52ø apparent field of view, the 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece yields extremely sharp images of impressively high contrast.

Take a closer look with the included 10mm Sirius Plossl Eyepiece.

When you're ready to study objects with more magnification, use the included 10mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece. When inserted into the SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope reflector, the 10mm Plossl provides a powerful, 120x view with a 52ø apparent field of view, so you can inspect interesting objects more closely. We recommend starting out with the lower-power 25mm Plossl, then switching to the 10mm ocular to boost the power of your telescope's view.
