Table[{n 10 ^20, ToString[n] <> "\[CenterDot]10^20"}, {n, 1, 6}]

will work if you mark 10^20 with mouse or keyboard and press
Ctrl-Shift-N and delete the generated parantheses. Probably there is an
easier way, but I am not aware of that :(

P.S. In place of \[Centerdot] you might want want to try \[Times],
\[Cross], \[Star] or sth. like these.
