The Sky-Watcher 8" Classic Dobsonian Telescope stays true to what people love about Dobsonians, a simple-to-use design with exceptional massive light-gathering power. This telescope's full 8" aperture coupled with the ability to easily rotate it on the smooth base make deep sky viewing a joy for the average astronomer.

Although motorized telescopes are great, the simplicity of this design is perfect for the astronomer learning the night sky. Yet Sky-Watcher have included advanced features that the seasoned astronomer will appreciate. The innovative optical design, the ability to use either 2" or 1.25" eyepieces, and the patented Tension Control Handle all set this scope apart from its peers.

Features

  • 8” (203 mm) Dobsonian-style Newtonian Telescope with 1200mm focal length (f/5.9)
  • The"Parabloidal" shape of the primary mirror and the super-fine (.5mm thick) supports for the secondary mirror eliminate aberration, diffraction spikes and light loss, resulting in crisper, brighter images
  • The heavy duty 2" rack and pinion focuser with a 1.25" adapter allows the use of eyepieces and accessories of both sizes.
  • With the new Tension Control Handle, the user can  easily adjust tension to allow the scope to move or to lock it in place, even when the scope is unbalanced or laden with optical accessories.
  • This package includes everything needed for viewing right away, including two Super Plossl Eyepieces (25mm and 10mm) and a 6x30 finderscope

Great purchase!

I saw Saturn with my own eyes, even the rings. So exciting to see the familiar shape that you've known your whole life. I was able to connect my phone to share a pretty decent photo on Facebook. We even had my kids friends over for a moon party. Great purchase.

Easy for novice

Ordered to use with my kids. Arrived quickly. I'm not much of an astronomer, but I could set it up no problem. The manual is clear and I didn't need any tools. So far just looked at the moon. Kids had a blast!

Whoah!

A friend recommended an 8" Dobsonian as a lifetime telescope. I'm a total newbie, so I followed his advice. First night out my daughter and I saw Jupiter, just pointing it at bright stars in the sky! It seems well made and it was easy to set up. Buy this...I don't think you'll be disappointed. My astronomer friend says next step is to get a 2" eyepiece.

This shroud covers it all.

This shroud blocks out all of the light trespass in my area. It has two slots for the eyepiece and the finder scope. A must have item for this instrument.

Nicely emersive experience.

This lens has me looking into more 2" eyepieces from the same series. The views are amazing and Crystal clear. Literally room to stretch out the eyes.
Ring Nebula is so beautiful through this lens, truly breathtaking.

Fast, reliable, spot on customer service.

I have been in the market for an Ultralight 12" Dobsonian telescope. Ryan helped me with useful information on Explore Scientific telescope. What an amazing purchase. A high quality instrument and a dream come true for collimation. Great company, great scope.

Coming equipped with two decent eyepieces and an adapter is nice. Will upgrade to a 2" eyepiece one day, but not in the budget right now. Thanks to Ryan for help with ordering.

Easy

I'm enjoying the telescope very much. It's not too hard to assemble, although very slowly the first time.
