254mm Black Diamond Newtonian telescope for conventient portability and storage
Elegant truss tube design and carefully engineered to combine ease-of-use, extreme portability and consistent performance. Unlike other truss tube designs, the SkyWatcher Collapsible Dobsonian does not need to be disassembled between sessions and transports as two compact parts that can be assembled and ready to use in seconds!
Easy to collimate, once set up it holds collimation throughout the evening!
Like their traditional Dobs, the new collapsible models feature the patented tension adjustment control on the altitude bearings. This eliminates the need and added cost of clumsy counterweight systems to balance the telescope.
Includes ultra smooth Crayford focusers.
