A powerful and capable telescope, the Orion SkyQuest XT8 Classic
Dobsonian is one of our most popular reflectors due to its elegant
combination of precision optics, mechanical simplicity, and rock-solid
stability. You and your whole family will appreciate the bright, clear
views of the night sky provided by the XT8 Classic. The Moon and planets
of our solar system like Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars shine brightly in
the SkyQuest XT8 Classic, allowing you to inspect them in detail. The
XT8's 8-inch aperture is also large enough to gather a significant
amount of light from more distant celestial objects for great views of
sparkling star clusters, cloudy nebulas, and faraway galaxies. The XT8
Classic Dob is a tremendous value considering the high quality views it
provides on such a wide variety of celestial objects. The point-and-view
simplicity of the Dobsonian design is not as complicated as an
equatorial (EQ) mount and tripod, so with a little practice, your whole
family can scan the heavens just like experienced hobbyists. For any
astronomer seeking serious adventure, the XT8 Classic Dob has it all!
