THIS IS A CUSTOMIZED ORION XT10 10" F8 DOBSONION REFLECTOR.  THE ORIGINAL MANUALLY OPERATED MOUNT HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A PREMIUM 3/4" 13 PLY  BALTIC PLYWOOD MOUNT AND TECH2000 DOB DRIVER II DUAL AXIS MOTOR DRIVEN DRIVE SET PROVIDING PUSH BUTTON MOTION CONTROL IN ALTITUDE AND AZIMUTH AND AUTOMATIC OBJECT TRACKING.  IT ALSO COMES WITH THE ORION INTELLISCOPE COMPUTERIZED OBJECT LOCATOR WHICH ENABLES THE USER TO  POINT THE TELESCOPE QUICKLY AND EFFORTLESSLY TO MORE THAN 14,000 CELSESTIAL OBJECTS. MOUNTED THE TELESCOPE IS APPROXIMATELY 4 1/2 FEET HIGH ( TUBE VERTICAL ), 4 FEET LONG (TUBE HORIZONTAL) AND 2 FEET WIDE.  THERE ARE A FEW SCRATCHES ON THE TUBE BUT OVERALL CONDITION IS VERY GOOD.   WITH THIS TELESCOPE YOU CAN SIMPLY SCAN THE SKY USING THE DOB DRIVER IP DOWN BUTTONS AND THE EXZ FINDER SIGHT OR YOU CAN TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL USING IT'S BUILT IN  OBJECT FINDING, TRACKING AND ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY CAPABILITIES ( CAMERA REQUIRED ).  THE ACCOMPANYING MANUALS TAKE YOU STEP BY STEP THROUGH THE NECESSARY SETUP PROCEDURES.  I ENJOYED THE MECHANICS INVOLVED ALMOST AS MUCH AS THE VIEWING.

FOR THE DRIVE SYSTEM :http://www.tech2000astronomy.com/dobdriver/driverdescrip/NOTE:  THIS DRIVE SYSTEM COSTS MORE THAN THE TELESCOPE.  SINCE I NEVER GOT INTO ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY IT HAS FEATURES WHICH I NEVER EVEN USED.
