I'm offering this Orion XT6 Classic 6" Dobsonian Reflector. I purchased it several months ago and have used it sparingly. I bought it from Orion and the total including shipping and customs charges was about $520. There are very few Canadian dealers who offer Orion scopes and this is an opportunity to get one in almost-new condition without any taxes or fees. The reason I'm selling it is that I've purchased a different scope more suited to my needs (long-exposure astrophotography). I've used this scope outside a total of three times. This is a fantastic beginner-to-intermediate level scope. The 6" aperture collects enough light to view many fascinating deep-sky objects such as M42, M45, and M31. It is fairly compact and can easily be carried in one piece.
The scope is fully assembled and shows no signs of wear. The finish is shiny, the mirrors are pristine, and the dobsonian mount moves effortlessly across the sky to whatever object you please.
Included is exactly what the scope came with:
-Red-dot laser finder scope
-25mm Plossl eyepiece
-Dust cap and eyepiece cap
-User's manual/instruction booklets

Below are a couple pictures I snapped with a digital camera through the eyepiece.
