25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece

The included 1.25″ Orion 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece provides a 48-power view when used with the SkyQuest XT8 Classic Dobsonian telescope. Offering a wide 52° apparent field of view, the 25mm Sirius Plossl eyepiece yields extremely sharp images of impressively high contrast. With the 25mm Plossl in the included Shorty 2x Barlow of the Beginner Barlow Kit, its magnification is boosted to 96-power!

Orion EZ Finder II red-dot sight

Following a simple alignment procedure, you can use the EZ Finder II sight to accurately aim the StarBlast 6 IntelliScope at objects in the sky. This is especially useful when calibrating the IntelliScope object location system and centering alignment stars. Once the EZ Finder II is lined up with the telescope, just turn on the sight and peer through its circular viewing window and move the telescope until the red dot is on the target object or star.

Orion CorrecTension springs

The telescope tube attaches securely to the base by virtue of Orion’s CorrecTension Friction Optimization system, which utilizes heavy-duty springs to both securely couple the tube to the base, and to keep the telescope in constant balance to avoid drifting during observations. Even with large 2″ eyepieces and accessories installed, the XT8 Dobsonian telescope optical tube will remain balanced throughout your viewing sessions.

2″ Crayford focuser

The SkyQuest XT8 Classic Dobsonian features a 2″ Crayford focuser with a removable 1.25″ adapter so it can accept both 1.25″ and 2″ eyepieces and accessories. The Crayford mechanism ensures all focus adjustments are smooth, accurate, and virtually free of backlash and flexure, even with heavier 2″ accessories installed, so you can achieve precise focus easily.
