  • More Info
    • An enormous yet conveniently portable 14" aperture truss-tube Dobsonian telescope equipped with fully motorized GoTo object location and automatic tracking of over 42,000 celestial objects
    • Colossal 14" aperture reflector optics collect tons of light for wonderfully detailed views of deep space objects such as galaxies, star clusters, and cloudy nebulas, in addition to bright and detailed views of closer cosmic quarry including the Moon and planets
    • Orion-designed collapsible GoTo Dobsonian base AND rigid 8-pole truss reflector optical tube both break down into easily manageable components for transport in virtually any car
    • Closed-loop electronics forgive accidental bumps, nudges, and even manual repositioning without losing alignment of the GoTo system. Heavy-duty clutches allow independent adjustment of motion to desired level of resistance in both axes.
    • The XX14g now comes Wi-Fi enabled, which means it can be controlled wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet instead of with the SynScan hand controller. Just download the FREE SynScan Pro app to your iOS or Android device to enjoy wireless GoTo control
