About the Sky-Watcher Flextube 14" SynScan GoTo Collapsible Dobsonian
Enjoy the huge 'light-bucket' value of the wide-aperture Dobsonian design, but have extra space in your car or storage space due to Sky-Watcher's propietary collapsible design, which allows you to minimize the telescope's profile with the turn of a few screws without the hassle of disassembly.
Paired with the beloved SynScan computerized GoTo system, you can take a tour of the more than 42,000 celestial targets on offer in the databse. With such a huge aperture, you'll be able to take see most of those targets relatively clearly. The GoTo system is able to locate and track items through the night sky automatically.
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.
- 14” aperture, 1650mm focal length, and fast focal ratio f/4.6 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 sharper 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.
