Compare it to other truss tube designs and you'll find that the SkyWatcher GoTo 8" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope doesn't need you to disassemble it between uses. Simply transport it as two compact pieces, assemble it in seconds and you're ready to go!
Collimation also becomes a quick and easy process with this Dobsonian, and collimation is retained throughout the single use – doing away with the fiddly need for constant adjustments. The patented Tension Control Handle enables you to manipulate the tension, and thus the fruction between the optical tubes and sideboards.
