Visually the moon will appear sharper than in the picture shown, but it will take an exceptional "seeing" night to see Saturn as well as the digital image obtained with this model. But if you don't have optics this good that night will pass and you wont have noticed!

First constructed by Sir Isaac Newton this optical design employs two mirrors (a parabolic and an elliptical flat) to gather and reflect light to focus at an eyepiece. A good Dobsonian mounted Newtonian reflector can offer the best view per dollar

The use of a simple Alt-Azimuth mounting, lightweight mirror and modestly priced components evolved from a goal of San Francisco sidewalk astronomer John Dobson to get the most telescope possible into the hands of the amateur observer
This model is popular among those who desire an easily manageable telescope with the light gathering and field of view potential for observing many of the most popular deep sky objects (Galaxies, Star Clusters, Nebulae)

And still this telescope affords the good contrast and clarity qualities required for lunar and planetary observing. With a comparatively small central obstruction, and fewer optical surfaces, the contrast and brightness can actually surpass more expensive designs such as the SCT

Noteworthy improvements over conventional economical Dobsonians include:
* Multicoated, high reflectivity Pyrex Parabolic mirror improves brightness and contrast.
* Optics hand finished to 1/16 wave
* Crayford style 2" & 1.25" focuser
* patented adjustable tension altitude bearing
* 9x50 finder
* 2 Super Plossl eyepieces; 25mm & 10mm
