Description: Using the XT8 Classic as a starting point, we added top-notch features and accessories to create the Orion SkyQuest XT8 PLUS Dobsonian Reflector. This deluxe upgrade of our stalwart 8" reflector telescope boasts a redesigned Dobsonian base, adjustable altitude axis tension, a 2" dual-speed Crayford focuser, and a host of other upgraded features and included accessories. The sleek redesigned base of our SkyQuest XT8 Plus Dobsonian not only looks great, it also features weight-reducing cutouts which help make the XT8 PLUS more portable than its XT8 Classic counterpart. more...

Amazon Customer Review:Fantastic starter telescope for those looking for a bit more right off the bat. Easy enough to set up, slightly awkward to carry around, but all in all, fantastic value. The 28mm eyepiece is great. The 10mm and Barlow can produce some fantastic deep sky views and close ups of the Moon. more...
