Product Description & Reviews

This 10"-aperture reflector Dobsonian telescope features a precise 2" dual-speed Crayford focuser, adjustable altitude axis tension, a streamlined Dobsonian base with helpful white trim, easily adjustable secondary mirror thumbscrews, and more. The SkyQuest XT10 PLUS comes with a bevy of useful stargazing accessories including a 2" 28mm eyepiece, 1.25" 10mm eyepiece, Shorty 2x Barlow Lens, eyepiece rack, EZ Finder II reflex sight, and the popular DeepMap 600 Folding Star Chart. We even include a safe solar filter so you can use the XT10 PLUS during the day to look at sunspots, eclipses and other interesting solar phenomena. The SkyQuest XT10 PLUS has it all! The SkyQuest XT10 PLUS Dobsonian Reflector Telescope is built around a 10" (254mm) diameter parabolic primary mirror mounted in a sturdy, cast-aluminum support cell. With 56% more light-grasp than an 8" telescope, you'll enjoy a significant increase in ability to observe the more subtle structures in faint galaxies, nebulas and other deep-sky objects. Besides stunning views of deep-sky fare, you'll be amazed by bright, exquisitely detailed views of the Moon and planets of our solar system like Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars in the Orion SkyQuest XT10 PLUS. Enhanced-reflectivity mirror coatings boost the XT10 PLUS Dobsonian telescope's reflectivity up to 94% so as much light as possible is transmitted to the eyepiece, resulting in exceptionally bright, clear views. The sleek redesigned base of our SkyQuest XT10 PLUS Dobsonian not only looks great, it also features weight-reducing cutouts which help make the telescope lighter and more portable than its XT10 Classic counterpart. The base is conveniently visible, even in the dark of night, thanks to its white trim to help avoid accidental bumps. Topping the base (literally) is the large, 10"-aperture, f/4.7 reflector telescope optical tube with an eye-catching metallic blue color.

Features & Highlights

  • This deluxe upgrade of our popular XT10 Classic Dobsonian boasts multiple key feature enhancements and additional included accessories
  • 10" aperture reflector optical tube rides on a redesigned base with adjustable altitude tension knobs. Highly visible white trim on base makes it easier to see and step around in the dark
  • Convenient thumbscrew-adjustable secondary mirror for easy collimation without tools
  • Features a 2" dual-speed Crayford focuser with 11:1 fine-focus provides precise focus adjustments for sharp views
  • Upgraded accessories include a 2" 28mm DeepView eyepiece, 1.25" 10mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece, Safety Film Solar Filter, Shorty 2x Barlow, eyepiece rack, EZ Finder II reflex sight, DeepMap 600 folding star chart, collimation cap, and more
