Orion 8968 SkyQuest XX16g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian Telescope
From the Manufacturer
Our largest Dobsonian reflector yet is an ideal combination of three key telescope features: large aperture, convenient portability, and precise GoTo object location. Thanks to its 16″ aperture parabolic primary mirror, the Orion SkyQuest XX16g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian will astound you with spectacular views of the night sky. Its Orion-designed collapsible Dobsonian base and 8-pole truss optical tube makes transportation of this hefty telescope easy since the entire telescope can be disassembled without tools into small, manageable component pieces that can fit in virtually any standard size car. You’ll be able to enjoy the XX16g’s large-aperture optics thanks to the accurate, motorized GoTo system which will automatically locate and track any of over 42,000 celestial curiosities within its computerized database of night sky objects.
