This is a gently used Orion SkyQuest 6 inch dob. It comes with the following items:

Sirius 25mm Plossl eyepiece
Sirius 10mm Plossl eyepiece
Telerad viewfinder
Orion 4 piece planetary filter set
Soft carry case for telescope

This package sells new for about $450 retail. I'm selling it used for $300 plus buyer pays actual shipping cost. Pickup available if buyer is local to New York City, NJ area.

I am moving up to a 10" dob, but this 6" dob has given me some wonderful viewing nights!

The 6" aperture reflector has traditionally been suggested by fellow astronomers as the first serious telescope for the amateur up through the 1970's. In his best-selling book Nightwatch: A Practical Guide to Viewing the Universe, veteran author and astronomer Terrence Dickinson says, "There may not be a perfect telescope for the beginner, but the closest thing to it is the 6-inch Dobsonian-mounted Newtonian reflector."
