Orion SkyQuest XT10 Classic 10" Dobsonian
Telescope 08947






  • Orion SkyQuest XT10 Classic 10" Dobsonian Telescope is a reflector telescope with a Jumbo 10" parbolic primary mirror.


  • The SkyQuest XT10 is a Dobsonian design and is supported by a wooden base making it easy to use.


  • Orion SkyQuest XT10 provides smooth motion in both altitude an azimuth axes.


  • The Orion SkyQuest XT10 has 254mm aperture and 1200mm focal length.






Simple operation, jumbo optics, and bang-for-your-buck value are just three simple reasons why the Orion SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian is one of Orion's most popular Dobsonian reflector telescopes. As Astronomy magazine raved, the SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian brings a "new level of joy to simple observing". With a jumbo 10" diameter parabolic primary mirror gathering a ton of light from the night sky, obervers are able to see more objects than you would with an 8" or smaller scope. The XT10 Classic Dobsonian reflector telescope's big mirror yields exceptionally bright view with high contrast.






Because of its "point and view" Dobsonian design, the XT10 Classic Orion Dobsonian telescope is refreshingly easy to use. The optical tube on the XT10 is supported by a sturdy wooden base which makes it easy to use. The base supports the 10" reflector optical tube handily while the Orion CorrecTension springs help keep the tube in perfect balance and also provide secure attachment to the base. Providing smooth motion in both altitude an azimuth axes as you move the telescope from object to object are the Teflon and UHMW bearings. With a convenient handle on the base, carry the XT10 Orion Dobsonian telescope anywhere you wish. For set up, simply set the base down, bring out the reflector optical tube and securely couple the tube to the base using the CorrecTension springs and viola! The XT10 Classic is a great instrument offering superb observing whether it be the planets, the moon or a myriad of deep-sky treasures, the XT10 Orion Dobsonian telescope yields amazing adventures amongst the night sky.





The Orion SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian can give you deep-space thrills without deep-pocket frills. Orion kept the 10" Dobsonian lean and mean to keep its price low for tight budgets. But don't misconstrue an affordable price for sacrificing quality. The XT10 Classic Dobsonian reflector comes fully equipped for adventure out the box. Standard equipment on the XT10 includes a 2" Crayford focuser, 25mm Sirius Plossl telescope eyepiece, EZ finder II reflex sight aiming device, and quick collimation cap. The 2" Crayford focuser features a step-down adapter so you can use both 1.25" and 2" telescope eyepieces with the XT10 Dobsonian. The included EZ Finder II makes it easy to aim the telescope accurately, and the 25mm Plossly eyepiece will astound the whole family with bright, clear, 48x power views through the XT10 Classic Dobsonian Reflector. Don't delay, enjoy the wonders of the night sky with the Orion SkyQuest XT10 Classic Dobsonian Telescope!
