Orion SkyQuest Newtonian

10" Orion SkyQuest Newtonian Reflector Telescope on Dobsonian (Alt-Az) Mount

Newtonian Reflector telescopes are commonly referred to as "Light Buckets" because of their incredible light-gathering ability. Dobsonian mounted Newtonian scopes are easy to set up and use, just point and enjoy. Makes a great beginner telescope.
