Orion XT8 Plus Dobsonian Telescope Review

Something new to the channel, another hobby…

Great telescope for someone who wants a quality first scope or someone who wants to move up from a more basic model to something that can really reach out.

Thanks for watching and as always subscribe for more!

Orion just released the Orion SkyQuest XT10 Plus!!!

Im trying to get my hands on it, hopefully.

Dialectical Materialism says:

Were you able to find Uranus or Neptune with this?

Bob Causey says:

I’m looking into getting this scope. Your video is very helpful. Do think that it would be a hassle to transport it in your car? (I have a Jeep). Also, do you think the XT10 would be that much bigger to make it difficult to haul around?

Pyrotech Nick says:

I love my xt8 plus I would recommend the 9×50 right angle finder scope from Orion it’s a really nice and helpful finder scope

Cygnus Array 12 says:

can’t go wrong with one of those!!

Agent Carolina says:

I’m gonna order this thing tonight and I’m gonna get a 2 inch Moon filter to go with it!

Through the Telescope! says:

Nice Scope!

Looking at this just makes me want to paint my Dob the same colour!

How heavy is this?

SubOrbitalBen says:

I got mine this past summer and it was way better than I expected. I ended up buying a ton more options and accessories for it and it made the XT8 Plus even more of a pleasure to use. Highly recommended for a beginner astronomer.

InfinitySnipes says:

great video man, bought the exact scope and it has been absolutely incredible!!! That being said though I have started to get aperture fever and I have a feeling you might as well lol

keeler1160 says:

I’m debating whether to get xt8 plus or xt10 plus. Which one should I get?

Does the base and scope detach easily?
