Description

The Saxon Dobsonian 12" Reflector Telescope is a powerful telescope which allows you to see further into the nightsky without bursting your budget. They are one of the Best First Time User's Telescope as they give the most value. This is due to its unique design, whereby the majority of the product cost goes into its high-quality lens.

PYREX GLASS ON THE 12"
The Saxon 12” Dobsonian features a primary mirror made of Pyrex glass. Because of its very low coefficient of thermal expansion, Pyrex glass is less affected by changing temperatures. This greatly reduces the cooling time of a telescope larger than 10” in diameter without using an extra fan. The great stability of this low expansion glass ensures high quality images. It is also substantially more resistant to scratching then plate glass.

*Please note, the image through all finder scopes will be upside down.

The telescope arrived parcel at a time over 4 days in good condition. Unit was packaged well. Assembling the telescope was simple with tools provided in the kit. I did find it practical to use a better quality screw driver and spanner but those provided will do the job.
The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I was able to align the finder scope with the telescope during the day time without issue but to date have not had a single clear night to check out the skies! The daylight image while setting up the finder scope was clear and the unit easy to use.

Pros: user friendly, Positive adjustments, great first telescope
Cons: Size; it's not small. But that's because it's a Dob; it's expected
