Home Telescopes SkyWatcher Telescopes SkyWatcher Dobsonian Telescopes SkyWatcher Skyliner 150P Dobsonian Telescope
These instruments offer an incredible aperture-to-price ratio. The Dobsonian mount, popularized by John Dobson in the late 1970s, is a very simple but effective method of mounting a Newtonian Reflector, based on the alt-azimuth principle. Fast and easy to set up, the Dobsonian mount consists of a box-type mounting which allows the telescope to pivot in altitude, while the box itself is rotated on a base in azimuth. The secret of the design is to correctly balance the optical tube and to use frictional materials, which allow it to move easily when nudged but to stay in position when not. The mount is designed to be driven by hand as opposed to slow motion controls. Sky-Watcher Dobsonians feature a unique patented Tensioner/Carrying handle. By lifting the handles together, you can easily carry the whole unit in an upright position with the help of a friend.

Excellent First Scope Had my 150P for a couple of years now. It has to be the easiest to use and best view from a budget scope.Invest in a few extras like a Barlow or Plossl lenses and you will be happy. Saturn and it's wonderful rings, Jupiter and it's moons, and of course the Moon looks fantastic. (04/07/2017) Mike Dack - Westfield UK
