Details from web below:

This pleasantly portable, yet large-aperture Orion Dobsonian is equipped with GoTo motorization and closed-loop tracking, making it an ideal telescope for use in the backyard or at your favorite dark sky site. Not only does the Oron SkyQuest XX14g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian feature exceptionally large 14" (356mm) diameter optics, but its Orion-designed collapsible GoTo Dobsonian base and truss tube make the XX14g conveniently portable, since you can break the entire telescope down into bite-size component pieces.
Imagine, a 14" diameter Dobsonian reflector with motorized GoTo object location and tracking, capable of being packed into a small car. The optical tube and base both separate into smaller components - without tools. Once broken down, everything fits easily into even a compact car, for the trip to your favorite dark-sky site. The rigid 8-pole truss tube of the XX14g virtually eliminates flexure observed in 6- and 3-pole collapsible tube designs. Stability of the assembled XX14g Dobsonian base is enhanced by its 1" thick composite wood base panels, which are laminated with water-resistant black melamine. GoTo and tracking motors are pre-installed on the base panels, making assembly nice and easy. Once the tube and base are assembled, the optical tube attaches to the base with a dovetail trunnion and locks securely in place with a single captive hand knob. Since all base and truss tube hardware is captive, you don't have to worry about leaving a screw behind after a long night of viewing in the field.
