    SkyWatcher SkyLiner 150P Dobsonian Telescopes

    Sky-Watcher Dobsonian Telescopes are popular among amateur astronomers for being able to get large aperture sizes at affordable price, is one of the most practical optical instruments in world of astronomy. Designed to be simple, Sky-Watcher Dobsonian consists of 2 parts: a solid tube and a wooden mount, almost immediately allows you to start your observation sessions without spending time on setup.

    The Sky-Watcher 6" Dobsonian is a large aperture newtonian reflector telescope with f/8 focal ratio, make it ideal for wide field and deep-sky observation. Big aperture means better light gathering power, with this Sky Watcher Telescopes, you are able to see prominent deep-sky object such as nebulae, star cluster and many more. Come with a 2" focuser with a 1.25" adapter, users are allow to use either eyepiece size.

    Tension Control System
    Allows you to adjust the friction setting, to increase or reduce the amount of resistance when moving the tube on the wooden mount, so you always have the appropriate resistance setting. The secret of the design is to correctly balance the optical tube with special designed handles on the base, adds enough friction and tension to allow the tube to move easily when nudged but to stay in position when not.

    Great first telescope - Review by
    Overall Score
    Ordered this telescope on a Saturday and it arrived over here in West Aus on the Wednesday so super fast postage, double boxed aswell.

    Well what can i say, its BIG, skies have been a little cloudy since i got it but managed one clear night so slipped the supplied 25mm eye peice in and found Jupiter no problem replaced the eye peice with the supplied 10mm and could easily see the 4 moons of Jupiter and also just make out one of the red cloud belts.

    Once i get some more clear nights i am really going to look forward to scanning the night sky to see what i can find and cant wait for a quarter and full moon.

    Great first telescope for anyone, only niggley thing is trying to find things in the night sky with the finder scope, i would reccomend replacing the one that comes with the scope with either a red dot finder or TELRAD finder.

    Cons: May encourage you to buy a big telescope!, Size; it's not small. But that's because it's a Dob; it's expected

    Is the mount motorised or hand operated?
    It's a hand operated mount.
    Is this the same as a SkyQuest XT6 Classic Dobsonian telescope?
    It is not exactly the same but virtually all the Dobsonians on the market have very similar specifications and build quality. If you were after a 6" Dobsonian, we are running a special for Saxon 6" Dobsonians for $289 (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/dobsonian-telescope-saxon-6inch.html)
    Are there available adapters so you can take photos with the skywatcher Dobsonian or would you need to go to another telescope - if so which 6" would you recommend?
    There are 2 types of adapters that can be used for this telescope depending on whether you are using a standard Digital Camera or a SLR. For the standard digital camera, the Saxon Universal Digital Camera Adaptor would be most suitable. You can find that here: http://www.ozscopes.com.au/universal-digital-camera-adaptor-large-saxon.html For Digital or normal SLR cameras, you'd require 2 parts. The first part is the Universal Celestron T-Adapter (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/celestron-t-adapter-universal-1-25-in.html). The 2nd part is a T-ring which will depend on what type of SLR camera(Canon, Nikon etc) you have. You can find them here(http://www.ozscopes.com.au/catalogsearch/result/?q=t-ring) As these adaptors are universally made and fit all 1.25inch eyepiece fittings, they will work fine on the Dobsonian.
    Why does the Skywatcher 6" Dob seem very similar to the Saxon 6" Dob, and why the different sale prices? Which do you recommend?
    The Saxon and Skywatcher dobsonians have identical specifications as the dobsonians are manufactured in the same factory and are simply re-branded for sale. In terms of pricing, the resale price is dependent on the pricing we are getting from our supplier at the time. At the moment, the Skywatcher Dobsonian is in stock and currently on sale. I recommend getting the Skywatcher at this time
    Can I pickup in person, if so, where are you?
    Yes, you can definitely pick one up from our warehouse. We are located at Unit 2/21 Scoresby Road, Bayswater Victoria, right behind Impala Kitchens.
    What eyepieces and accessories do your saxon and skywatcher dobsonian telescopes come with? What is the finderscope?
    Our dobsonians are provided with two eyepiece: The Saxon comes with a 25mm low magnification and a 10mm high magnification eyepiece. The Skywatcher comes with a 20mm low magnification and a 10mm high magnification eyepiece. Both telescopes come with a finderscope, which is designed to help locate an object in the sky first, to make alignment of the telescope easier. The Saxon comes with a 6x30 finderscope and the Skywatcher comes with a 9x50. Both telescopes will allow the use of 1.25" and 2" eyepieces.
