- If the Competitor has that item in stock and displays it on their website
- If you have a written quote from the Competitor indicating the price and availability if that information is not readily available on their website.
WE CANNOT PRICE MATCH:
- Items that are not in stock at the Competitor or the price and availability is not clearly indicated
- Special bulk or discount bundles, clearance products, second-hand, refurbished or display stock or exclusive member deals offered by the Competitor

- International dealers or unauthorised distributors that are selling international goods direct to Australian consumers

The Saxon 8" Dobsonian Telescope offers ultimate convenience without compromising on optical quality. This tube comes with a wide aperture for deep sky viewing, and when you no longer require it, the tube collapses. Don't need to reassemble, just pull it out of the clasp when you need to use it again!
This collapsible telescope was redesigned from the venerable standard 8" Dobsonian telescope to include some improvements and upgrades. Saxon's extensive research brought them to design a piece that collapses at its tube for portability. Should you ever need to transport your tube, it can be taken apart as two compact pieces and then assembled again for use - in mere seconds!
The Saxon 8 inch Dobsonian Telescope is also fitted with a quality Crayford focuser. Crayfords offer very smooth motion controls so you can make fine focus adjustments. It is also easy to collimate once set up, and it holds its collimation throughout the evening!
The bearing system has been redesigned as well. The new Saxon Collapsible Dobsonians feature buttery smooth azimuth bearings. Just like the traditional Dobsonians, the new Collapsible Dobsonians feature Saxon's patented tension adjustment control on the altitude bearings. This eliminates the need and added cost of clumsy counterweight systems to balance the telescope.
Tension Control Handle
This Saxon Dob 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 8" Dobsonian Telescope is covered by a 5-Year Warranty.
