"This telescope is fantastic! We've used it already to look at Jupiter and Saturn and we've never had such an outstanding experience in astronomy before. It is easy to build and impressively easy to operate. It is also very light. Delivery was good, everything is new therefore in a perfect state."

2" Crayford style focuser worth $200 factory installed. You dont get these on older Dobs. Or the brilliant new altitude bearings

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 design remains the first choice among serious deep sky observers, and it is not uncommon to find custom or home made & commercial 5" to 25" aperture "Dobs" at observing events

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, Planetary Nebulae, etc.).

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 Dobs include:
* Multicoated, high reflectivity mirror coatings improve brightness and contrast.
* Parabolic optics
* Focal length 50" (1200mm); F6
* Crayford style 2 speed 2" & 1.25" focuser worth $200
* 8x50 finder
* Super Plossl eyepiece 9mm f.l.,141X
* Super Plossl eyepiece 25mm f.l., 48x
