  • Sky-Watcher's stylish truss tube was constructed to allow for ease of use, portability and consistent performance – in an affordable package. Compare to its peers, the SkyWatcher Black Diamond GOTO 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope does away with tedious disassembly between uses. This Go-To 10” Dobsonian comes apart into two compact pieces, and setting it up takes mere seconds!

    Collimating this scope becomes quick and easy, requiring no fiddly readjustments even throughout an entire night's use. By using its Tension Control Handle, you can add and reduce tension to adjust the amount of friction between the optical tubes and sideboard. This allows you to control the angle of the telescope's tilt.

    The SynScan AZ hand control allows you 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. The patented dual encoder design allows the telescope to be moved manually whenever the user wishes - but with no need for re-alignment! The Sky-Watcher Go-To Dobsonian Series combines the convenience and affordability of the traditional Dobsonian with the convenience of a computerized Go-To telescope.
