The secret of the design is to correctly balance the optical tube with special designed handles on the base. The design adds enough friction and tension to allow the tube to move easily when nudged but to stay in position when not. Users can easily add or reduce tension by turning on the handle. This feature solves the common balance problem found on many Dobsonians.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSky-Watcher 150mm \/ 6” Newtonian Dobsonian AZ Telescope\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSpecifications: \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eObjective lens diameter\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 150mm\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eFocal length\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 1200mm\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eSecondary mirror diameter\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 34.5mm\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eOptical design\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - Newtonian\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eHighest practical power\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 306x\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eFaintest steller magnitude\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 13.6\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eResolving power\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 0.74\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eFinderscope\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 6x30*\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eFocuser diameter\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 2” with 1.25” adapter\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eEyepiece(s)\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 1.25” super 25 and 10*\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eGround board diameter\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 52cm\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eTube weight\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e - 5.78Kg\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatures:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eLarge 150mm aperture has outstanding light gathering ability\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eExcellent optics with paraboloidal primary mirror to eliminate spherical aberration\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003eEasy to use\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e2\" focuser with a 1.25\" adapter, allowing the use of either eyepiece size.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"line-height: 1.4;\"\u003e\u003cbr\u003eDownload the \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0604\/4313\/files\/Sky-Watcher_Dobsonian_Instruction_Manual.pdf?4836276341932306865\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Sky-Watcher Dobsonian Instruction Manual\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eInstruction Manual\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e"}

Packed with power, this dobsonian telescope is easy to use making it an ideal choice for amateur astronomers and beginners. This telescope produces high definition views of the night sky, including breathtaking views of the Moon, planets and thousands of deep sky objects.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Sky-Watcher 8\" Dobsonian Telescope includes the new feature-tension control handle. The secret of the design is to correctly balance the optical tube with special designed handles on the base. The design adds enough friction and tension to allow the tube to move easily when nudged but to stay in position when not. Users can easily add or reduce tension by turning on the handle.
