Orion SkyQuest XX14i IntelliScope Truss Dobsonian
Colossal 14"-aperture parabolic optics open up the heavens to new visual adventures!

Enhanced reflectivity (94%) aluminum mirror coatings for brighter images

14" optics collect 36% more light than a 12" mirror, and an amazing 96% more light than a 10" Dobsonian allowing you to resolve significantly fainter objects and more subtle details

Orion-designed for great pack-it-up portability! Both optical tube and base disassemble without tools to fit easily into a standard-size car

The Orion-designed collapsible base, made of 1" thick engineered composite wood with a weather-resistant laminated finish for rock-solid stability, adds to the portability of the XX14i

Included IntelliScope object location technology pinpoints thousands of objects with pushbutton ease- Much more affordable than comparably sized boutique" Dobsonians

Eight-pole truss design ensures greater structural rigidity than competitors' 3- and 6-pole designs- Ultra-smooth azimuth base motion optimized by Ebony Star on virgin teflon bearing surfaces

All collapsible base and truss-pole hardware is captive to prevent accidental loss

Dual-speed (11:1) 2" Crayford focuser allows sharp views of even the most elusive celestial targets
