Sky-Watcher GoTo Collapsible Dobsonian 12″ (305 mm) For Sale
Say it isn’t so! I gotta give up this beautiful scope. I am downsizing and with a heavy heart this fantastic 12 inch go-to dobsonian has got to go. It has been an amazing instrument. How many of us can say they have seen Uranus and Neptune with their own eyes! I can! Not to mention the fantastic views of the other planets, star clusters, nebulas and the breathtaking views of the moon.
Here is what Skywatcher site says about this telescope:
The 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! The patented Tension Control Handle allows users to add or reduce tension, thereby increasing or decreasing the friction between the optical tube and the sideboards.
The SynScan™ AZ hand control allows you point your telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button!! The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The patented dual encoder design allows the telescope to be moved manually whenever the user wishes – but with no need for re-alignment!
