Astronomers love the Saxon 8″ Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope for its clever ability to gather a lot of light, without being too big of a hassle to store or lug around! While it is fitted and extended, the telescope helps you look into the deep sky for beautiful nebulae, and when you are done with it simply collapse the tube, put on the cap and keep it well in a little corner. You’ll love how this dobsonian makes things really easy!

The Saxon 8″ Dobsonian Telescope offers ultimate convenience without compromising on optical quality. This tube comes with a wide aperture for deep sky viewing, and when you no longer require it, the tube collapses. No need to reassemble, just pull it out of the clasp when you need to use it again!

This collapsible telescope was redesigned from the standard 8″ Dobsonian telescope to include some improvements and upgrades. Saxon’s extensive research brought them to design a piece that collapses its tube for portability. Should you ever need to transport your tube, it can be taken apart as two compact pieces and then assembled again for use – in seconds!

There are two stops when raising the tube, the first is for astrophotography, allowing the user to attach an DSLR Camera to the tube, the first stop changes the focal length, giving you the exact position for attaching a DSLR. The second stop is for visual use.

The Saxon 8 inch Dobsonian Telescope is also fitted with a quality Crayford focuser. Crayfords offer very smooth motion controls so you can make fine focus adjustments. It is also easy to collimate once set up, and it holds its collimation throughout the evening!

Tension Control Handle
This Saxon Dob is fitted with a Tension Control Handle (US Patent #6,940,642), to provide a tension adjuster so that users can easily turns to add or reduce tension, thereby increasing or decreasing the friction between the optical tube and the sideboard of the mount. Telescopes then need not be balanced in order to stay in position. A tension adjuster also allows the optical tube to stay in position although the tube can still be moved when prompted.

The Saxon 8″ Dobsonian Telescope is covered by a 5-Year Warranty.
