Using the "push-to" IntelliScope system is easy for any backyard stargazer. Just select an object to view from the IntelliScope controller's menu buttons, press Enter, and then move the telescope in the direction of the guide arrows on the liquid crystal display. In seconds, the IntelliScope's two high-resolution, 9,216-step digital encoders pinpoint the object, placing it right in the telescope's field of view. The Computerized Object Locator's database includes a lifetime of celestial objects to view: 837 stars (including double and variable stars), 7,840 NGC objects, 5,386 IC objects, 101 Messier objects, 8 major planets, and 99 user-entered objects. It features illuminated buttons and a backlit, two-line LCD display. The intuitive menu buttons allow selection of objects by type (e.g., Planet, Nebula, Cluster, Galaxy) or catalog number (e.g., M57, NGC 253). Press the Tour button to select one of 12 tours of the best objects visible in any given month. If you happen to find an object you aren't familiar with, you can even use the controller's ID button to find out the name of the object you're viewing.

Since the Orion IntelliScope Computerized Object Locator system does not involve motors, you actively push the telescope following the directions displayed on the handheld IntelliScope controller until the object you've selected is centered. The XT8i IntelliScope will actually teach you about locations of objects in the night sky during use as you gently push the telescope from object to object. Instead of relying on power-draining GoTo system motors, the "push-to" IntelliScope XT8i saves energy and expense by running on a single 9-volt battery cell (included).

The Orion SkyQuest XT8i IntelliScope Computerized Dobsonian Telescope is capable of providing you and your family with years of entertainment under the stars. Its 8" (203mm) aperture parabolic primary mirror serves up jaw-dropping images of the planets, cloudy nebulas, star clusters, and galaxies. The 8"-aperture reflector telescope tube rides on a streamlined, ultra-stable Dobsonian base, which moves smoothly on non-stick PTFE and UHMW polyethylene bearing pads. The Orion CorrecTension system keeps the telescope tube perfectly balanced on the Dobsonian base for simple, effective point-and-view ease of use.
