Due to its simplicity, the Dobsonian mounted telescope is popular among amateur astronomers and telescope makers.
This telescope is simple to operate, as long as stablisation of the optical tube is achieved, it can remain in its desired position to view an object and maintain its position even when the mount is rotated.
This 8'' Dobsonian has a large aperture (203mm), the aperture is the factor for a telescope's light gathering power, the greater the aperture the brighter/clearer the view, which means a bright image delivery is easily achieved.
This telescope has excellent wide field and deep-sky exploration properties due to its high levels of magnification, making this model an ideal choice for its cost
Aperture: 203mm -focal length:1200mm
This Skywatcher Dobsonian telescope offers the advantage of an inexpensive instrument which comes with a large aperture of 203mm. It is great for beginners & hobbyists. Also, this versatile model gives excellent magnification for deep sky exploration such as star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.
