Saxon 12-inch F/4.9 Collapsible Dobadd this item to shopping cartThis product is highly recommended
Code: SAXON-CT12
305mm Deep-Sky Newtonian telescope for conventient portability and storage


The saxon 12" DeepSky CT Dobsonian Telescope is the scope that combines performance with portability.

This telescope comes with a massive light-hungry aperture of 305mm and a focal length of 1500mm. Immerse yourself with spectacular views of constellations, planets, double stars and galaxies with this advanced telescope.

Elegant truss tube design and carefully engineered to combine ease-of-use, extreme portability and consistent performance. Unlike other truss tube designs, the Saxon 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!

The Saxon Collapsible Dobsonians feature buttery smooth azimuth bearings and can be rotated with just the push of a finger. 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.
