Quoted from review: "Orion no longer sells the XT-6i."

Orion did drop the XT6i from it's website and catalog for a while, but it has been listed again the last several times I looked (including this morning, shown in-stock).

Great little scope. I've had mine a couple years.

The XT-6i is in the latest Orion catalog which I received Saturday, in addition to being shown in-stock on Orion's website. You probably should update your review so as to avoid steering folks away from this great little telescope.

I enjoyed this review. I have the XT6 basic scope and can't imagine a better bang for the buck scope. Though the "is" version just might be for someone who is pretty unfamiliar with the night sky.
