About the Sky-Watcher Flextube 10" SynScan GoTo Collapsible Dobsonian
Get the famous light-gathering value of the traditional Dobsonian with the added convenience of a GoTo computerized mount. Storage and portability are made simple with Sky-Watcher's patented collapsible truss tube system, which allows you to greatly minimize the size profile without the hassle of complete disassembly.
Let the renowned SynScan GoTo system be your guide. It can locate and track over 42,000 celestial objects, which should keep even seasoned enthusiasts busy exploring for a while.
Many feel that Dobsonian telescopes are great for learning the night sky through manual adjustment. This ethos is maintained with the the dual-encoder Freedom Find system, which allows the user to make even large adjustments by hand, even when the GoTo system is in use. The computer keeps track of those movements without the need for realigment. The best of both worlds!
