A large aperture easy to use telescope with all you need to observe the wonders of the night sky, the Dobsonian design offers maximum light grasp at the pricing level and the Bresser Messier is cleverly designed to be easily upgraded.
The Bresser Messier Dobsonian 8-inch uses two large radius altitude trunions to support itself and sits on a smooth, heavy duty, yet lightweight Dobsonian base, which puts it the telescope at a useful height for adults to observe comfortably. Remove these trunions from the telescope's rings, easily mount a Vixen or Losmandy profile dovetail plate instead and this telescope can be fitted to a wide array of commencially available equatorial and alt/az mounts - demonstrating a clear potential upgrade path. This telescope also comes with a red dot finder, the new ultra-stable Hex-Focuser (upgradable to dual speed version) and eyepiece and accessory rack with room for both 1.25" and 2" accessories.
