  • Summary: Great Item it´s easy to handle; I was Thik it will be more heaviest, but It´s ok. The images are really cool but, Saturn looks smallest that I expect. I recommend this product.

  • Summary: I bought this telescope for my son for Christmas. The optics are excellent. At 120x I saw a Jupiter shadow transit easily. Operation is easy. I find the mount to be perhaps a little too small.

  • Summary: I picked up an XT6 for Christmas to replace my old Jason refractor telescope and what a difference it has made. The images are sharp and crisp and the dobsonian mount makes it very easy to aim and hold the scope on an object. Also the finder is amazing once you have it calibrated.

  • Summary: I am a complete novice, but after researching scopes, and with the budget I had, the Xt6 was my choice. It was very well packaged, set up properly and after assembly all I had to do was wait for a clear night. The supplied 25 mm EP is very nice and the views were great.

  • Summary: I always wanted a telescope as a kid, so when my daughter started asking about stars and planets, I thought I'd buy one to let her see for herself. I wanted to get something that was powerful enough to not be a toy but not too big or complicated or expensive. This scope was a perfect choice.

  • Summary: I have owned my XT6i for just about a month now, and I am very happy with my choice. I did a lot of research before purchasing this telescope, and while many reviewers will say "aperture is everything," I am very glad I went with a slightly smaller scope that includes the object locator.

  • Summary: My wife and I purchased a scope from Costco and after our first look at Jupiter we decided to return it and get something better. Well I have to say I was disappointed when our view of Jupiter was no better even with the 10mm Siruis Plossl eyepiece. In fact this scope was much harder to position.

  • Summary: For (the price) you cant go wrong with this telescope. The mount functions well,even better with a few modifications. The long focal length is great for the moon and planets. A quality eyepiece and good portability are big plusses. No problems....Good on ya, Orion! 5 stars.
