Product Description

This is a big, friendly horse of a telescope you can ride off into the sunset with, and then thrill to well resolved celestial views when twilight fades. The SW 10" DOB is an very satisfying telescope to own, an instrument that will provide a lifetime of continuing exploration of the heavens. This telescope will hit the sweet-spot for many amateurs, providing all the capability and value you are seeking in a large aperture telescope. 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 a large aperture telescope that can be reasonably handled and transported by one individual. This innovation gives Sky-Watcher users tremendous functional ease-of-transportability.

This really is all the telescope you will ever need! Absolutely worth every penny! The base is slightly too cumbersome to make this scope as portable as I would have liked (although it is still very portable for someone that doesn't live in a second floor apartment! :)) but the ease of use and ease of set up makes up for it. I am currently a beginner but in the process of studying for my BSc. in Astrophysics and this scope will accompany me through every level of study and beyond.
