    SkyWatcher 8" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope

    The Ultimate Convenience
    SkyWatcher does it again. An old favorite gets a complete facelift with new features and upgraded components - the new SkyWatcher 8" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope features a collapsible truss-tube Dobsonian design requiring no reassembly between uses!

    The venerable Dobsonian reflector design has recently undergone some important upgrades and improvements: SkyWatcher is pleased to introduce the all-new Collapsible Dobsonian 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 SkyWatcher 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.
