Telescopes on Dobsonian Mounts

A Dobsonian mount is a type of an alt-azimuth mount, which was designed by John Dobson. The mount consists of a flat platform, on which sits a so-called rocker box — a rotating box with two depressions cut at the top. These depressions support the weight of the altitude axle of the telescope. Dobsonian mounts are most commonly used with amateur telescopes and larger optical tubes, due to their light weight, simple assembly and precise controls.

Though you might find just what you need in other sections of our catalogue.

Besides the easy-to-use and quick-to-assemble practical Dobsonian mount, Dobsonian Telescopes feature high-quality optical elements made of BK-7 glass, 2" dual-speed Crayford focuser for precise focusing that comes with a 1.25" adapter, which allows using eyepieces of both 1.25" and 2" barrel diameters. Included in the kit are additional eyepieces that allow you to extend the abilities of Dobsonian Telescopes. A 9 mm Plössl eyepiece will help you get more detailed views of the Solar System planets, while a 30 mm SuperView eyepiece will provide you with quality views of nebulas, galaxies and other deep-sky objects. Dobsonian models are mostly amateur telescopes, but they are also favored by professional astronomers for their large apertures.
