Dobsonian telescopes are made to be popular among amateur astronomers who seek ease of use, simplicity and guaranteed elegance. Sky-Watcher now brings in a wow factor in the presence of the 18” Dobsonian Telescope with an aperture of 458mm diameter and 1900mm focal length. The remarkable light gathering power will be able to catch the most subtle night sky features. Its stylish and rigid all metal truss tube design can easily be transported when unassembled, and can be assembled in just a hefty 20 minutes. Just like its kin, it operates via Alt-Azimuth mount and parabolic mirror that limits diffraction. It includes a cloth light shroud with supporting ribs.
