Dobsonian telescopes are made to be popular among amateur astronomers who seek ease of use, simplicity and guaranteed elegance. The Dobsonian Collapsible Telescopes have Collapsible truss-tube design that needs no disassembly because you can transport the package in two compact pieces. This simple and easy to use collapsible model is combined with Crayford focuser in a Dobsonian mount having large 406mm diameter aperture and performance of a 1800mm focal lengthlens. It features Buttery smooth azimuth bearings to keep the telescope easy to rotate with just a push of the finger. The Tension control handle is Sky-Watcher’s latest technology that is capable of adjusting the tension to modify the friction between the sideboard mount and the optical tube.


Product Features in Detail

Collapsible truss-tube dobsonian design
A collapsible truss-tube dobsonian design that requires no reassembly -the ultimate convenience!

New features and upgraded components
SkyWatcher does it again. An old favorite gets a complete facelift with new features and upgraded components!

Dobsonian reflector design
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.

Ease of use, extreme portability and consistent 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!

Buttery smooth azimuth bearings
The bearing system has been redesigned as well. The new SkyWatcher Collapsible Dobsonians feature buttery smooth azimuth bearings. Even the twelve-inch model can be rotated with just the push of a finger. Like our traditional Dobsonians, the new Collapsible Dobsonians feature SkyWatcher’s patented tension adjustment control on the altitude bearings. This eliminates the need and added cost of clumsy counterweight systems to balance the telescope.

Crayford focusers
To top it off, all of the new Collapsible Dobsonians are shipping with ultra smooth Crayford focusers. 90 degree finderscope is also available.
