Explore Scientific 10-inch Truss Tube Dobsonian Telescope - Generation II
This Truss Tube Dob Telescope brings serious deep space observation to the individual astronomer. The full ten inches of aperture allows you to bring faint deep space objects into crisp resolution, while the focal ratio (f/5) allows for a usefully wide field of view.
Explore Scientific has designed the entire structure to assemble and disassemble entirely without tools, making it easy to transport in your car. The lightweight and portable two-piece design allows the primary objective to store in a unique self contained aluminum housing with a lid for transport, and the secondary fits inside the aluminum rocker box. Two large radial fans are installed to hasten thermal equilibrium.
Collimation of the instrument can be done by one person without any additional tools, using easy-to-adjust mechanisms, a unique feature of this design.
Over-sized bearings make altitude and azimuth adjustments smooth, even at very high magnifications.
The package is rounded out with a very user-friendly 2" two-speed focuser with 10:1 speeds and a red-dot finder.
