If you've never probed the heavens with an instrument of this size before, then you ain't seen nothin' yet! The XT10's 254mm parabolic mirror gulps in 56% more light than an 8" scope. The sheer number of objects visible in this telescope is staggering, and its prodigious resolving power reveals intricate structure in nebulas and galaxies. The mirror is precision figured from BK-7 glass and is center marked for precise collimation.
Aiming is wonderfully easy. You just slew and view. Orion's CorrecTension Friction Optimization ensures silky smooth, controlled motion and superior balance control.
Includes a 2" rack-and-pinion focuser which accepts both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces, navigation knob, EZ Finder II, one 1.25" Sirius Plossl eyepiece, eyepiece rack, quick-collimation cap, and hard dust cap. One-year limited warranty.
