Sky-Watcher are proud to introduce a new range of truss-tube dobsonian models. The mount is designed to be driven by hand as opposed to slow motion controls. When in use the tube is fully extended and each arm’s axis is clamped to ensure a rigid optical system. Owning a large telescope has never been so easy!! The new FlexTubeTM Dobsonians all feature retactable OTA’s, making them easy to transport and store, offering the ultimate flexibility for owning an otherwise large telescope. The Dobsonian mount, popularized by John Dobson in the late 1970’s, is a very simple but effective method of mounting a Newtonian Reflector, based on the alt-azimuth principle. The Dobsonian mounted telescope is popular among amateur astronomers and telescope makers because of its simplicity. The user-friendly mount makes the scope easy to handle, while its tension control adjuster enables you to tighten the optical tube in a desired position.
