    6" Skywatcher classic Dobsonian Telescope

    The Sky-Watcher Dobsonian Telescope 153mm/1200mm (6") telescopes have a parabolic 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.

    ** Freight is just $88 to all capital cities and most regional towns, enquire us with your postcode to confirm freight **

    With its larger aperture and longer focal length than the Kson 4" tabletop , this scope is at its best with the bright planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Venus & Mars) Bright nebulae, Galaxies, Star clusters and more. It has the same easy set up as the 102mm Kson but sits on the ground rather than on a table. A larger Aperture (mirror size) means more light gathered, giving a more detailed image of fainter objects.

    It is a great choice where the very portable telescope is not as important as the larger aperture of the 150mm. It is the economical choice where your budget will not quite stretch to the 8" dobsonian.

    The venerable Dobsonian reflector design has recently undergone some important upgrades and improvements: SkyWatcher is pleased to introduce the all-new Collapsible Dobsonian complete with Crayford focuser – the ultimate in large aperture portability and performance.

    This elegant truss tube design was carefully engineered to combine ease of use, extreme portability and consistent performance in an affordable package. Unlike other truss tube designs, the SkyWatcher Collapsible Dobsonian does not need to be disassembled between uses. It transports as two compact pieces that can be assembled and ready to use in just seconds! It is easy to collimate once set up, and it holds its collimation throughout the evening!

    The bearing system has been redesigned as well. The new SkyWatcher Collapsible Dobsonians feature buttery smooth azimuth bearings. Even the twelve-inch model can be rotated with just the push of a finger. Like our traditional Dobsonians, the new Collapsible Dobsonians feature SkyWatcher’s patented tension adjustment control on the altitude bearings. This eliminates the need and added cost of clumsy counterweight systems to balance the telescope.
