This telescope has a large light-gathering capability and provides bright, clear images when you observe deep-space objects such as galaxies, nebulae, planets, and much more. There are models with 10, 12, & 16-inch apertures. Due to the open truss design, this telescope is portable and features an easy setup. The redesigned Dobsonian base with a no-tool assembly provides a stable stand. The telescope comes with roller bearings, a hand-adjustable variable tension brake for smooth and stable movement, and a mounted eyepiece holder that can carry 2” and 1.25” eyepieces.
This telescope features an upgraded 2” two-speed Rack & Pinion Focuser. The Rack & Pinion design includes a 10:1 fine focus knob for precise focusing and includes a Vernier scale with millimeter markings on the drawtube to assist with focusing accuracy.
