The Ultimate Light Gatherer

The Sky-Watcher Collapsible Go-To Dobsonian combines the great light gathering of the Dobson telescope with the convenience of the computerised system SynScan. Once the telescope is aligned, the Go-To system allows the user to slew the telescope toward planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, clusters and much more. The SynScan has 42,900 celestial objects in its memory, allowing for an amazing  journey in the night sky. The Deep Sky Tour function suggests a list of the most interesting deep sky objects so even the inexperienced astronomer can easily observe faint objects with a touch of a button.

The patented collapsible system is the ultimate in technology and portability and is ready for night sky action in seconds; the spring loaded system enables easy, single handed extension of the tube.

The Freedom Find technology (dual-encoder) allows the telescope to be moved manually whenever the user wishes, but without losing any of the pre-set alignment.

To top it off, the Sky-Watcher Collapsible Dobsonians are equipped with a 2″ Crayford focuser and focuser locking screw.

All Sky-Watcher Goto telescopes are equipped with either a SynScan hand controller or Wifi Adaptor. Please check product specifications before purchasing.

For amateur astronomers seeking superior equatorial control and the ease of a high-precision computerised Go-To telescope mounting system for imaging or visual applications, the family of SynScan TM Pro Series mountings are the answer. All SynScan TM Pro Series models are premium-grade observing platforms which have been thoughtfully designed for ease of operation. With the user-friendly push-button hand control, locating and viewing the treasures of the night sky becomes a walk in the park. The SynScan TM hand control allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or tour the skies 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 observation sessions.
