Orion 8964 SkyQuest XX14g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian Telescope
From the Manufacturer
This pleasantly portable, yet large-aperture Orion Dobsonian is equipped with GoTo motorization and closed-loop tracking, making it an ideal telescope for use in the backyard or at your favorite dark sky site. Not only does the Oron SkyQuest XX14g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian feature exceptionally large 14″ (356mm) diameter optics, but its Orion-designed collapsible GoTo Dobsonian base and truss tube make the XX14g conveniently portable, since you can break the entire telescope down into bite-size component pieces.
Orion SkyQuest XX14g Characteristics:
- An enormous yet conveniently portable 14″ aperture truss-tube Dobsonian telescope equipped with fully motorized GoTo object location and automatic tracking of over 42,000 celestial objects
- Colossal 14″ aperture reflector optics collect tons of light for wonderfully detailed views of deep space objects such as galaxies, star clusters, and cloudy nebulas, in addition to bright and detailed views of closer cosmic quarry including the Moon and planets
- Orion-designed collapsible GoTo Dobsonian base AND rigid 8-pole truss reflector 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. Heavy-duty clutches allow independent adjustment of motion to desired level of resistance in both axes.
- The XX14g now comes Wi-Fi enabled, which means it can be controlled wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet instead of with the SynScan hand controller. Just download the SynScan Pro app to your iOS or Android device to enjoy wireless GoTo control
