Orion Dobsonians have at all times been recognized for excellent optical and mechanical high quality, superb ease of use, and remarkably inexpensive costs. One more thing they – and nearly all different Dobs in the marketplace – have had in commonplace: you driven the telescope for your observing target by way of hand. Till now. Orion is happy to usher in some other large jump in Dobsonian evolution with the introduction of the SkyQuest XTg series of absolutely motorized GoTo Dobsonians. Now, pointing a Dob to even probably the most elusive of NGC curiosities is as simple as pushing a button or two at the XTg Dobsonians’ illuminated hand controller. Top-torque servo motors guided by way of two pairs of Top-solution encoders then slew the telescope proper for your object of pastime – any of over 42,000 objects within the GoTo controller’s database. Not more nudging the telescope tube often to stay the item from drifting out of the sphere of view, both. The XTg robotically tracks the item’s motion, keeping it focused within the eyepiece even as you savor the view. What is more, the closed-loop electronics of the XTg can help you move the telescope manually – or bear the accidental bump – with out dropping orientation for correct, computerized GoTo pointing!
