The Orion SkyQuest XT8 Classic Dobsonian telescope kit will open up the night sky for your entire family to discover. With excellent light grasp, point-and-view ease of use, and an array of super helpful included accessories, the SkyQuest XT8 is truly one of the best beginner telescope values on the market today. The XT8's big 8" parabolic primary mirror collects 78% more light than a 6" mirror, so you get greater ability to discern dust lanes in nebulas, resolve the cores of prominent globular star clusters, and to reveal some of the more subtle structures in faint galaxies. The 1219mm focal length (f/5.9) mirror delivers clear and crisp views at moderate to high magnifications on clear nights with good seeing conditions. Jupiter's cloud bands and the Moon's cratered surface come alive with vivid detail in the XT8's field of view. The SkyQuest XT8 features a 2" Crayford focuser, which allows use of optional 2" eyepieces. An included 2"-to-1.25" step-down adapter accommodates 1.25" eyepieces, such as the 25mm Plossl that comes with the telescope. It provides 49x magnifying power. The XT8's 45"-long enameled steel optical tube glides with silky smoothness on the sturdy Dobsonian base. Just grasp the front of the tube and point it toward your target using simple up-down and left-right motions. The "red dot" (LED) finder scope makes it easy to find your target object and center it in the telescope's eyepiece. The Orion SkyQuest XT6 Kit comes with additional accessories to enhance your experience: 2x Short Barlow lens, MoonMap, DeepMap, Observer's Guide, RedBeam LED flashlight, and a smartphone adapter for taking pictures through the telescope's eyepiece. Meets or exceeds all California State Environmental Quality and Safety Regulations (CARB 93120 Phase 2 Compliant).
