Orion SkyQuest XT8 Dobsonian Intelliscope with Object Locator and Holster.


  • 203mm f/5.9 (FL = 1200mm) primary mirror
  • 10mm and 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepieces included
  • 9x50 Right angle correct image finder scope
  • Crayford style focuser
  • Collimation cap
  • Eyepiece rack
  • Navigation knob
  • Carry handle
  • Large Dobsonian reflector telescope with 8" aperture allows you to see faint deep-sky objects such as nebulas and galaxies, in addition to fantastic views of the Moon and planets
  • Locating those faint deep-sky objects is simple with the IntelliScope Computerized Object Locator - it includes more than 14,000 objects in its database, and points you right to each one
  • Select the object you wish to view from the IntelliScope database, then simply follow the directional arrows displayed on the hand controller by moving the telescope until the object is right in the eyepiece field of view - it's easy!
  • The ultra-stable Dobsonian telescope base keeps the reflector optical tube perfectly balanced for easy point-and-view use
  • A precise Crayford focuser allows use of larger format 2" telescope eyepieces - the bright, wide-field view of the Andromeda galaxy in a low power 2" eyepiece is jaw-dropping!

Dobsonian IntellisScopes features exquisite optics and the 8" aperture offers 65% more light gathering power than the 6" counterpart. That is more than half a magnitude in brightness. Giving you jawdropping viewing of planets, nebulas, clusters and galaxies and other deepsky objects. The Dobsonian is an extremely easy telescope to set up and operate. It can be stored in a small area (less than 0.5 m2).
