    Following Saxon's sought after Saxon 12" Dobsonian Telescope, Saxon has made some improvements and refinements to the scope to make the now venerable Saxon 12" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope. This mighty intelligent tube features a 1500mm focal length, which is although colossal, has the ability to collapse at the tube to offer portrability and transportability. With 10mm and 25mm eyepieces accompanying this telescope, you are afforded more than sufficient magnification to experience beautiful nebulae and galaxies.

    As an astronomy enthusiast you'll appreciate the 2" Crayford focuser that comes with the Saxon 12" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope (12 inch). This particular focuser ensures extra smooth and precise focusing, which will extremely useful when trying to look at the finer details of planets. Also comes with a 1.25" adatper so this scope can take eyepieces of any size. 

    The collapsible version of this 12" Dobsonian was designed with improvements made to the 12" version. This scope can be folded inward in the middle so that the tube shortens to save you space. When the scope is required, it can be easily assembled without any tools involved. Since the scope sits on a heavy and stable flat based mount with Saxon's proprietary Tension Control Handle, viewing at such high magnifications become less troublesome.

    Tension Control Handle
    This  Saxon 12" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope is fitted with a Tension Control Handle (US Patent #6,940,642), to provide a tension adjuster so that users can easily turns to add or reduce tension, thereby increasing or decreasing the friction between the optical tube and the sideboard of the mount. Telescopes then need not be balanced in order to stay in position. A tension adjuster also allows the optical tube to stay in position although the tube can still be moved when prompted. 

    The Saxon 12 Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope is covered by a 5-Year Warranty.
