For sale, a nice Orion SkyQuest XT6 Dobsonian telescope with some upgrades.

Mirrors are clean and bright. Mount moves satisfactorily in all directions. I have it labeled with decals for outreach, they will remove easily if you want them gone.

*150mm aperture, 1200mm focal length, f/8 ratio.
*1.25" focuser accepts most modern telescope eyepieces.
*Includes a Celestron branded 25mm Plossl eyepiece, yielding 48x magnification, ideal for many objects in the night sky.
*6x30mm straight optical finder, rugged and dependable with no batteries to lose
*Secondary mirror holder has been upgraded with collimation knobs, both mirrors can be aligned without tools.
Orion asks $350 for this new, without the collimation knobs and with a cheap red dot finder that never holds up under use instead of the optical finder.

This telescope performs very well, selling because I decided to roll with my 8" f/6 instead.
Other eyepieces and accessories are available at additional cost.

Asking price is $250. I'm also open to trades, especially refractors as I'm rather Newtonian and SCT flush. An Orion ST120 would be perfect. Can add cash for the right deal.
