Rating - Orion SkyQuest XX12i IntelliScope Truss Dobsonian Telescope

Recommended Posts

Dear Star Gazers,  What is your take on this model Dobsonian?  How does it compare with other Dobsonians?  Anybody out there have one?  I asked earlier this week about startup eyepiece recommendations for this scope.  Thanks!

They are reputed to be pretty good scopes. Made by the same manufacturer that Skywatcher uses - Synta. So the mirrors and mirror cells are most likely the same as in the Skywatcher Flextube 12" dobsonians. What sets the Orion XX12i apart is a different design to the trusses and the Intelliscope "push to" system. The latter has a good reputation as well although it does not actually drive the scope - the owned has to do that !
