8" Dobsonian - Collapsible

This is the type of telescope Astro Pete used when he started viewing the night sky. He highly recomends it for beginners and advanced users. You'll see the planets Jupiter, Saturn and its rings, the Orion Nebula, Globular Clusters and much more.

It transports as two compact pieces that can be assembled and ready to use in just seconds! And collapses down into a compact size for transport and storage. The ultimate in portability and performance.
