The Dobsonian design is a relatively recent development, which has brought enormous light gathering ability to the individual astronomer. Maneuver this 8" telescope easily on its swiveling base and navigate even the dimmest parts of space.
But Explore Scientific has gone a step further to create the ultimate in versatility. Simply unscrew the bearings from the tube and attach the telescope to a standard mount, using the included Vixen style dovetail base, and you now have a Newtonian, perfect for astrophotography.
Included in this package is a 2.5" Hexagonal focuser offering unparalleled ease of adjustment and allowing both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces. A Red-dot finder is also included.
Since the rocker box is assembled with quick connectors, this is the perfect portable instrument for late night expeditions.
