The Orion SkyQuest XT6 Classic Dobsonian telescope can open up the night sky for you and your entire family. With excellent light grasp, point-and-view ease of use, convenient portability, and a low price that can't be beat, the XT6 Classic Dobsonian reflector should be on the top your wish-list.

 

Built around a big, 150mm diameter parabolic primary mirror, the XT6 Classic Dobsonian collects nearly 80% more light than a 4.5" reflector telescope, rendering brighter views of the cosmos with greater detail noticeable when viewing deep-sky objects such as open and globular star clusters, nebulas, and brighter distant galaxies. With a long focal length of 1200mm and resultant focal ratio of f/8, the XT6 Classic Dobsonian performs especially well at planetary and lunar observation. Brighter planets such as Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars show an impressive amount of detail when viewed through the XT6 Classic. Jupiter's four brightest moons are easily visible surrounding the Jovian giant, and its cloud band "stripes" display nicely. If timing and good seeing conditions permit, you can even glimpse Jupiter's Great Red Spot (which has become more of a beige color in recent years) through the XT6 Classic Dobsonian reflector telescope. Saturn's stunning rings are quite a sight when looking through the SkyQuest XT6 Classic, with clear evenings providing views of the Cassini division between the rings, and even of Saturn's gigantic moon, Titan. When Mars cooperates with a clear atmosphere free of dust-storms, the XT6 Classic Dobsonian and its winning combination of aperture and focal length will yield great views of Martian surface markings and polar icecaps.
