About the Sky-Watcher Flextube 8" SynScan GoTo Collapsible Dobsonian

For those who want the Dobsonian's ability to see even the ‘faint fuzzies’ of deep space but also want the ultimate convenience of a GoTo computerized system, this is definitely the instrument of choice. Sky-Watcher’s patented collapsible steel truss tube system makes transporting such a large scope possible without the hassle of disassembly.

The beloved SynScan GoTo system brings your Dobsonian to the modern age. Align the telescope and then, with a click of a few buttons on the hand controller, take a guided tour through the heavens. The 42,000+ targets will have you exploring for some time. 

Some astronomers feel that Dobsonians are best for manual adjustment and learning the night sky. The dual-encoder Freedom Find system allows the user to make sweeping adjustments with the hands, while the system keeps track of the position. So, it is possible to switch between manual and GoTo mode without realignment! Truly the best of both worlds.

Features

  • 8”aperture, 1200mm focal length, and fast focal ratio f/5.9 Newtonian design mean wide-field deep space objects are easy targets.
  • Proprietary collapsible flextube design means less weight and the ability to slide the rear and front cells together, minimizing the profile and allowing transport.
  • SynScan GoTo system boasts a 42,000+ database and uses Freedom Find Dual encoder technology and a nifty slip-clutch to allow manual repositioning while the GoTo is in use
  • Heavy-duty 2” Crayford style focuser with 1.25” adapter allows a variety of eyepieces and offers zero backlash and shaper focus than rack-and-pinion focusers can achieve.
  • Comes as a complete package out of the box, including two 4-element 1.25” Plossl eyepieces (10mm and 25mm), and a 9x50 straight-through finderscope.

Review on Firstlight AR 102mm f9.8 on EXOS NANO EQ3

A great package for the price! The mount is steady! The Optics excel, in that the resolution and contrast are everything to be expected in a quality refractor! H.B. Appleton, Hi.

Astrozap Dew Heater Strap for Telescope

Explore Scientific Mak Cas 152 with EXOS2GT MOUNT

I did considerable shopping around and finally decided to buy my 152 Mak from Telescope Space. Ryan was very helpful with all my questions concerning Explore Scientific and my specific purchase. After a short period using my scope and mount, the mount seemed to have more play than it should have. Ryan had the Explore Scientific owner call me directly, where he immediately offered to exchange my mount. He also had the factory ship out the new mount while I was still using my original unit. Excellent service and sales support from both Ryan at Telescope Space and Explore Scientific. I will buy again from Telescope Space!

Monocular

Very clear, I am impressed for $38

Ryan knows what he is talking about.

Prompt customer service, positive attitude, great results
