XXg GoTo Dobs combine large-aperture optical performance with state-of-the-art computerized GoTo pointing capability. Moreover, this telescope was designed by Orion to be remarkably transportable - both the base and optical tube break down into easily manageable components that can fit into any standard size vehicle.
ORION SKYQUEST XX12G GOTO TRUSS TUBE DOBSONIAN FEATURES
- An elegant combination of three astronomical attributes: powerful optical performance, convenient collapsible portability, and modern motorized GoTo and tracking technology
- Big 12" aperture reflector optics bring in a huge amount of light from the night sky for great views of nebulas, galaxies, star clusters and solar system targets like the Moon and planets
- Orion-designed collapsible GoTo Dobsonian base AND 8-pole truss optical tube both break down into easily manageable components for transport in virtually any car
- Closed-loop electronics forgive accidental bumps, nudges, and even manual repositioning without losing alignment of the GoTo system and the rigid 8-pole truss tube design eliminates flexure observed in 6- and 3-pole truss Dobsonians
- Includes a 35mm DeepView 2" eyepiece, 12.5mm illuminated Plossl 1.25" eyepiece, eyepiece rack, EZ Finder II reflex sight, 2" extension tube, reflector collimation cap, 12V DC power cable, Cooling fan, Starry Night software, and more!
