The XT6i, with its object locator, allows the novice stargazer to find more than 14,000 objects with pushbutton ease. The Dobsonian telescope base is very stable yet portable, and the computerized IntelliScope system helps locate objects in seconds.
I got my SkyQuest XT6i for my birthday, and my dad and I had our first experience using the telescope this weekend. It was easy to set up, easy to adjust, and amazing what we were able to see. We used it in our driveway, and had a lot of lights on around us, but we were able to still see many stars and the moon. We are excited to take it to a remote area and see even more. This is my first telescope, and I am excited about the one my dad picked out for me. Being as young as I am, I still learned how to use this telescope in just a few minutes.
