More about the Orion Dob Pod for 4.5 - 10" Dobsonian Telescopes
Bring your Orion Dobsonian to new heights - literally - with the Dob Pod for 4.5-10" Orion Dobsonian Telescopes! The Dob Pod for Orion 4.5-10" Dobsonian Telescopes attaches securely to the base of your compatible Dobsonian reflector and raises the entire telescope a full foot upwards for more convenient and comfortable use while stargazing.
Dobsonian telescopes are arguably one of the best values available in stargazing equipment. Unlike their tripod-mounted counterparts, Dobsonian telescopes utilize a more affordable and easy-to-use wooden base mount as their foundation. While a Dobsonian base is stable, secure, and exceptionally functional, you cannot adjust its height as you would with a tripod. This can sometimes lead to awkward positioning of the telescope eyepiece, making it necessary to uncomfortably crouch or bend in order to observe certain celestial objects with the telescope. By attaching your compatible Dobsonian to the Orion Dob Pod, the height of the eyepiece is increased by 12" so you don't need to be a contortionist to look into the ocular comfortably. The extra height provided by the Dob Pod will make every observing experience much more comfortable when standing by the telescope in your favorite observing site.
Constructed of sturdy, 1" thick melamine-coated particle board, the rock-solid Dob Pod features built-in handle cutouts on each leg panel which serve to both decrease the overall weight of the Dob Pod for enhanced portability, and make it easy to grab and transport. The Dob Pod requires a simple, one-time assembly procedure.
Attaching your compatible Orion Dobsonian to the Dob Pod is easy and requires no tools. Simply place your compatible Dobsonian telescope's base on top of the Dob Pod so the plastic "feet" on the Dobsonian base register into the slots on the Dob Pod's triangular base board. This solid, secure connection makes it so your Dobsonian cannot slide off of the Dob Pod.
The Dob Pod has been designed to complement the Dob Dolly for Orion 4.5-10" Dobsonian Telescopes (sold separately). Using both the Dob Pod and Dob Dolly together will make it so you can roll your compatible Orion Dobsonian to and from your observing spot using the Dob Dolly, while also enjoying increased viewing comfort with the added height provided by the Dob Pod.

- Orion SkyQuest XT4.5 Classic Dobsonian Reflector Telescope
- Orion SkyQuest XT6 Classic Dobsonian Reflector Telescope
