The instruction Manuals are well written and very understandable.

The base has a convenient handle on it, but it's just an awkward shape to carry.

I have not yet connected the electronics - looking forward to that!

Ten inches of aperture, portability, ease of use, high quality construction, and a great price are what attracted me to this beginner-friendly Dobsonian.

After using the XT10i a few times at a dark sky site, I quickly learned how to handle the instrument and am quite pleased with its performance.

First light with this 'scope gave me a stunning view of Orion Nebula complete with a lavender hue (however, keep in mind that the ability to see coloration depends largely on dark sky conditions, age/sensitivity of the viewer's eye, and telescope aperture). I've also spied a purple Ring Nebula, the Whirlpool Galaxy, two cloud bands on Jupiter and four of its moons, a ringed Saturn flanked by four satellites, and Earth's moon using a 15% moon filter.

Overall, the XT10i is an excellent choice for anyone, like myself, looking to graduate from the flimsy Sears catalog reflector of their youth.

The XT10i is my first telescope and overall I'm really pleased with it. It's well made, easy to operate, and provides a very large aperture for the price. The intelliscope locator is impressively accurate if carefully calibrated against reference stars, and I've found it very useful indeed for finding objects. I love the elegant simplicity of this telescope, and that there is really very little that can go wrong with it (no motors, gears, etc).

I could go on about its many other great features, but perhaps some criticisms would be more valuable:

- The intelliscope device does not work well when it is cold! I've been out a few times with the XT10i in temperatures around freezing point. The LCD display on the intelliscope unit basically becomes almost unreadable (e.g. missing segments) and is very slow to update. You might be able to improve things by attaching a handwarmer or something to it, but I've not tried this yet. In warmer temperatures I've had no problems, but it's inconvenient that on cold clear nights it performs poorly.

- I'm not all that keen on the finder scope (9x50). I find that the right-angle and the high magnification actually make it difficult to find a particular star. For example, last night I was trying to put the finder on to a very bright star that I could clearly see with my unaided eyes. I pointed the scope in what I thought was roughly the right direction, but actually struggled for quite a while to find it in the finder scope. If there was no right-angle and lower magnification, I think it could be easier - it would be more like aiming down a gun barrel and there would be more stars in the finder's field of view. Perhaps as my knowledge of the night sky increases it will become easier.

At my first glance I was little reactant to use this telescope as it is somewhat big and heavy.But my first few movements showed me that it is very delicate in all directions and very versatile. The construction is excellent and I didn't find any cheap plastics anywhere.The base is astonishingly stable than I thought.The instruction Manuals are well written and very understandable. If you are having any problem in assembling you can use two demo videos on Youtube also.
The finderscope is well made and the optics are excellent and it is very easy to align with main tube. The collimation was superb and dead centre,It was well preserved during this long journey to Sri lanka.
I like the Object locater also and found it is dead accurate in finding object. But I tried my best to do finding objects my own and if I failed only I use it, because I like to feel the joy of finding objects by my self.
The views are excellent and one should observe himself to see the difference of the views,which it delivers. You will find how easy to locate object in the sky with minimum effort with the help of large finderscope.I only added red dot finder which help you to get the general direction of the sky.
I have observed many objects with this telescope and I'm extremely satisfied with the purchase.
Thank you very much Orion...!

Good optics but the "GoTo" mount is terrible with any eyepiece under 15mm. I was trying to see the "Great Red Spot" on Jupiter using a 10mm but I could never get the mount to stay still while I looked and it is impossible to track. With a 20mm or larger eyepiece, you can easily see the bands and the 4 main moons. If you want very close up views, I'd suggest getting the largest refractor you can afford with a tracking EQ mount.
Nebulas and galaxies are best viewed with a 2" eyepiece using a narrow band filter, especially near city lights.
As to the finder scope, I suggest using the deluxe green laser pointer with the mount it fits(items 52062 and 5673). I take off the 9X50 at night and use the laser and it points exactly at the star you want. Works like a charm. I only use the 9X50 for moon and Sun viewing.
Also, buy the laser collimator, I thought I had the telescope collimated but when I bought the laser, I found my secondary mirror off. A small tweak and you can collimate the main by the screws used to do it, easy as pie!
