Sky-Watcher 12-Inch Dobsonian Telescope - Tube Only

The Celestron Sky-Watcher 12-Inch Dobsonian Telescope's OTA lets you see objects just within the threshold of a 10" aperture appear more prominent and may be worth dwelling upon for extended periods. An 8x50mm Right Angle optical viewfinder provides both magnification and light-gathering. The standard-equipment backlash-free 2" Crayford Focuser ensures ultra smooth focusing adjustments. Multi-coated, 4-element Plossl eyepieces (25mm and 10mm) provide a spacious 52° Apparent Field of View.

To ensure mechanical ease-of-use, SW uses a high performance Teflon bearing system in both axes combined with tension adjustment in altitude to facilitate setting the appropriate amount of friction, assuring smooth vertical and horizontal manual movement without free-play from small bumps or gusts of wind. This also eliminates the need to have a balanced optical tube as in an equatorial mount.

Sky-Watcher's revolutionary truss-support concept allows the optical tube's front and back cells to collapse together, aligning on the truss support rods which can then be locked down for easy and secure telescope transport. This one piece, low-hassle OTA design is mechanically simple and results in large aperture telescopes that can be reasonably handled and transported by one individual. This innovation gives Sky-Watcher users tremendous functional ease-of-transportability.
