Alt-Azimuth-mounted Newtonian telescopes is a design popularized by John Dobson in 1965 and credited with vastly increasing the size of telescopes available to amateur astronomers. Dobson’s telescopes featured a simplified mechanical design that was easy to manufacture from readily available components to create a large, portable, low-cost telescope. The design is optimized for observing faint, deep-sky objects such as nebulae and galaxies. This type of observation requires a large objective diameter (i.e. light-gathering power) of relatively short focal length and portability for travel to less light-polluted locations.

Dobsonians are intended to be what is commonly called a “light bucket” operating at low magnification, and therefore the design omits features found in other amateur telescopes such as equatorial tracking. Dobsonians are popular in the amateur telescope making community, where the design was pioneered and continues to evolve. The term Dobsonian is currently used for a range of large-aperture Newtonian reflectors that use some of the basic Dobsonian design characteristics, regardless of the materials from which they are constructed, but can also be applied to smaller diameter designs.

Small but powerful, this bright, Dobsonian for stargazers is extremely portable, easy to use and available at a very reasonable price! This reflecting telescope is easy to operate, even for beginners and offers a straightforward introduction to the fascinating world of astronomy. The scope comes fully assembled and ready to use right out of the box. You can simply place it on a table, fit one of the two supplied eyepieces and begin exploring outer space. All required accessories are included, even a small book that introduces you to the starry sky and planetarium software for your computer.
Please note: Reflectors with a Newtonian optical design are very good for astronomical observing of the night sky. But these telescopes are not well suited for observing landscape and nature during daylight. Therefore we suggest refractor (lens-based) scope for easy conversion to terrestrial landscape and nature observations.
