Skywatcher 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope

SKU
SWK-SWDOB250C

A Dobsonian is a telescope that is set up on a simple mount that requires no nuts and bolts to assemble. In fact, this Saxon 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope is so space conscious that it folds inwards at the tube and, can be taken apart to two pieces for easy storage or transport to your next astro camp out in a dark sky site!

    So, you've heard the term Dobsonian used in the Astronomy circles for a while now but what exactly are these scopes and how do they work? Dobsonians are actually reflector telescopes that use the classic optical system of a newtonian, except the scope sits on a mount like the one you see above. Typical Dobsonians come in 6 to 12-inch sizes. The Saxon 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope is an example of a 10-inch tube.

    The simplified mount of the Dobsonian makes it very easy to take apart (tube and mount can be separated) and assemble for transporting or storage. What's even better about the Saxon 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope is the collapsible tube that folds inward at the middle of the tube. Being extra small and well protected with lens caps, this telescope makes for easy storage. If you are planning to take your telescope along on campaing trips, you'll love how this scope is hardly a space hogger! 

    By the way, the bearing system of this scope has just gotten a redesign. The new Saxon Collapsible Dobsonians feature buttery smooth azimuth bearings. The Saxon inch Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope can be rotated with just the push of a finger, thanks to the patented Tension Adjustement Control. This eliminates the need to purchase additional counter weight to balance the telescopes especially on non-level surfaces. 

    To top it off, all of the new Collapsible Dobsonians are shipping now with ultra smooth Crayford focusers and the 10mm and 25mm 1.25" Plossl Eyepieces. 

    The Saxon 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope is covered by a 5-Year Warranty.
