10 Inch Dobsonian Computer Aided (PushTo) Telescope

Important: This is a heavy and bulky telescope and it is usually loaned for extended periods.  It may require 2 people to lift it and a bigger vehicle to transport it.

The Orion SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope is a 10" aperture Dobsonian Reflector with a Push-To computer system for aiming the telescope. 


The Orion XT10i features a fairly large 10" apperture mirror combined with a Dodsonian mount. The telescope includes altitude and azimuthal encoders and a computer controller for push-to navigation. With the Orion SkyQuest XT10i IntelliScope Computer Controller, the user can select an object to view from the controller's 14,000+ object database, and the computer indicates the directions that the telescope must be moved to point at the selected object

A 9x50 finder scope is included to help aim the telescope. 

This telescope is similar in performance to the XT10g, but the XT10i Push-To system is not as heavy as the motorized Go-To XT10g. Never-the-less it is a heavy and bulky telescope.  It may require 2 people to lift it and a bigger vehicle to transport it.
