The saxon 12″ DeepSky Dobsonian Telescope (305/1500) is the perfect partner to begin your astronomy adventure with. This affordable telescope comes with a “paraboloidal” primary mirror to eliminate spherical aberration and a four-arm, secondary-mirror bracket with fine supports (0.5mm thick) to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss.

This telescope comes with an aperture of 305mm and a focal length of 1500mm in a 12″ tube. This scope features quality parts and accessories – the special roller-bearing construction, Crayford focuser, eyepieces and finderscope are all designed to aid with your observing experience.

The saxon 12″ DeepSky Dobsonian Telescope also features a primary mirror made of Pyrex glass. Pyrex glass promises high quality images by reducing the cooling time of telescopes larger than 8″ in diameter without the need of an extra fan. This is because the Pyrex glass is less affected by changing temperatures. The solid build of the Pyrex glass also makes it substantially more resistant to scratches compared to plate glass.

Once assembled and with a little practice, you’ll soon be able to find and view the rocky surfaces of the Moon, planets in the Solar System as well as deep sky objects such as star clusters, double stars, nebulae and galaxies.

The saxon 12″ DeepSky Dobsonian Telescope requires no additional tools during assembly and is incredibly easy to use, making it the perfect scope for serious astronomers.
