SkyWatcher 8" GoTo Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope with WIFI
Congratulations - you've found the pinnacle in portability and performance!
The pioneering new SkyWatcher GoTo Dobsonian series is precision engineered to allow users to find and view celestial treasures quickly and easily. Planets, nebulae, star clusters, galaxies and more – they're all ready for you to admire! With SkyWatcher and their patented collapsible tube designs, these Dobsonian telescopes are the epitome in portable performance.
Usability, portability, consistent performance - That's what you get with the SkyWatcher 8" GoTo Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope in an affordable package. 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 friction between the optical tubes and sideboards. To top it off, the Sky-Watcher Collapsible Dobsonians are equipped with a 2″ Crayford focuser and focuser locking screw.
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!
