SOLD: Orion SkyQuest XT8 Dobsonian Telescope

We used our telescope to watch and record (photos through the eye-piece) the lunar eclipse while we were in Togo. It was awesome. Sadly, it hasn't been used since. There wasn't anywhere in driving distance in Chennai that didn't have massive light pollution. And truly, a telescope likes to be put together, left together, and shifted only to find a better spot to view the night sky. This kind of telescope does not like to be disassembled, put in trunks of cars, or generally moved a great deal via shipping container or any other container.

So it needs a new home.

We have the solar filter for it too.

If you're in the NoVA area and interested, email me.

Selling price: $300 OBO
