Dobsonian Telescopes are well known for their value for money and it's ability to take you to the deeper skies. The Saxon 6" Dobsonian Telescope has been providing great value to beginner and seasoned Astronomers for many years through its simple mount that rotates and Pivots to locate objects.

This 6-inch Dobosnian features a Paraboloid primary mirror that effectively eliminates spherical aberration, offering the user maximum edge to edge clarity. Also designed with a four-arm secondary mirror bracket that is firmly supported, this Dobosonian telescope reduces diffraction spikes and light loss. 

All models of the Saxon dobsonian are built with a 2-inch focuser and a 1.25-inch adapter, giving you the option to use 1.25" or 2" adapters. 

Due to the nature of its simple mount, most of the cost goes into the optical components of the telescope. This is one of the best sellers and most recommended telescope by most of the team here at OpticsCentral. Your Saxon 6 inch Dobosonian Telescope comes with 2 Eyepieces (25mm and 10mm), a 6x30 Finderscope, a mount with a patented Tension Control Handle, the ability to support 2" and 1.25" Eyepieces and an industry leading 5 Year Manufacturer Warranty by Saxon Australia.

Bang for your buck! Review by Rob
Rating
This telescope is fantastic value for money. You get a lot of aperture for a reasonable price. Delivery was 2 days after i placed the order which is fantastic!

The telescope took about half an hour to assemble give or take then the next step was aligning the finderscope which was easy. I got lucky with the weather as viewing conditions were clear and there was no shortage of sights to behold. The moon first and then Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The belts of Jupiter and 4 moons were clearly visible and on Saturn Titan is easy to spot as is the Cassini division. Can't wait to see more.

Highly recommend! (Posted on 27 August 2018)

We love this telescope Review by Josh

This is the perfect first telescope. It didn't take me long to assemble it at all. My kids and I love it. There is so much that you can see. It's unbelievable! I didn't think I would be able to see the belts of Jupiter and Saturn's rings. Definitely a great first telescope! (Posted on 22 August 2012)

Its Big. If Only I Could Take It Around Review by Alice
Rating
This telescope arrived 2 days after I ordered and when I saw the courier taking it out the van, I knew that it would be a little bigger than I expected. No Complains though!

Assembly was quick and the moon and the craters is amazing. My only issue is that I can't see to find a way to fit in my little Mini easily and safely. I guess it will just have to stay at home.

I wonder if I can see Curiosity Rover with this telescope?

You get alot of telescope for your Money Review by Timothy (Perth)
Rating
I was expecting a little telescope which sits on my desk. When the courier guy came with 2 big boxes, I knew straight away this is alot larger than what I was expecting. Just to be sure, I thought I'd check the box to make sure this was a Dobsonian 6" which I ordered.

Looks great, can be hard to carry but once you get it out there, it is worth the effort. I used to have a small telescope I bought from the post office and this is on a completely different level. The Moon is actually bright and sharp! Saturn just used to be a blur and I can see the actual rings now. (Posted on 17 July 2012)
