    SkyWatcher Black Diamond GOTO 16" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope

    A COLLAPSIBLE TRUSS-TUBE DOBSONIAN DESIGN WITH FREEDOM FIND™ TECHNOLOGY & SYNSCAN CONTROL -- ULTIMATE CONVENIENCE & TRACKING!

    The venerable Dobsonian reflector design has recently undergone some important upgrades and improvements: Skywatcher is pleased to introduce the all-new Skywatcher GOTO 16" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope complete with Crayford focuser – the ultimate in large aperture portability and performance.

    This elegant truss tube design was carefully engineered to combine ease of use, extreme portability and consistent performance in an affordable package. Unlike other truss tube designs, the Saxon Collapsible Dobsonian does not need to be disassembled between uses. It transports as two compact pieces that can be assembled and ready to use in just seconds! It is easy to collimate once set up, and it holds its collimation throughout the evening!

    To top it off, all of the new Collapsible Dobsonians are shipping with ultra smooth Crayford focusers and together with the SynScan AZ hand control allows you to point your telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button!! The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. What more, the patented Freedom Find (dual-encoder) technology allows the telescope to be moved manually whenever the user wishes - but with no need for re-alignment!
