Product description:

Orion upgrades its popular SkyQuest Dobsonian telescopes!

SkyQuest Plus offers you

  • improved base design - this part, also known as the 'rocker-box', lies below the actual optics. It is now lighter, has an eyepiece tray and, above all, variably adjustable friction on the altitude axis - which allows you to adjust for the weight of your accessories. A white band has now been added around the rotary disc at the bottom - making the disc easier to see even in the dark so you won't trip over it.
  • collimation of the secondary mirror is now possible without needing any tools - thanks to high-grip screw heads.
  • but the biggest improvement is the extensive accessories that come with the 'plus' version - a suitable solar filter is now also included as well as an additional eyepiece and a Barlow lens! So your Dobsonian telescope can be used as a solar telescope right from the start!

The Orion SkyQuest telescope:

The optics of this Newtonian reflector telescope are of Orion's customary high quality. The soda lime glass mirror is supplied with high-quality aluminium and silicon dioxide coatings. Focusing on models up to 150mm aperture is via a 1.25" rack-and-pinion drive, and from 203mm aperture a 2" Crayford focuser is used.

The Dobsonian base turns on smoothly running Teflon bearings, so allowing jerk-free, effortless movement of the telescope. The tube holds position as it is suspended in perfect balance. The components of the telescope are both easy to handle and light; the telescope is eminently portable and can be assembled in just a few steps and without specialist knowledge or tools. The entire construction distinguishes itself by its insensitivity to wind and its stability.
