<strong>SKYWATCHER DOBSONIAN TELESCOPES</strong>
SKYWATCHER DOBSONIAN TELESCOPES
The Dobsonian telescope is an economical way to own a large aperture telescope as most of the cost of making a Dobsonian is in the Optics which is really the bit that counts!
The Dobsonian telescope has got more sophisticated over the last few years with the addition of computer systems.
The Dobsonian is a no fuss and easy to use telescope.
SBTC Highly recommends The Skywatcher range of Dobsonians

<em>HERITAGE-76 Telescope </em> HERITAGE-76 Telescope
HERITAGE-76 76mm (3") f/300 mini Dobsonian Telescope
“International Year of Astronomy Special Edition”

The Sky-Watcher Heritage-76 has been specially designed to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy (IYA) and the 400th Anniversary of Galileo’s first telescope. This is not only a highly functional precision optical instrument but also a beautiful collector’s piece, desk or shelf ornament, and ideal gift.

The beautiful, luxurious tube graphics depict a richly historical theme. The images have been specially designed to symbolise Galileo and his conflict with the Catholic church. Galileo Galilei’s public championing of Copernicus’ theory of heliocentrism, which was contrary to the geocentric beliefs at the time, eventually led to him being denounced to the Roman Inquisition. He was subsequently tried, suspected of heresy, forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest. Of course Galileo, “The father of modern science” and “The father of modern observational astronomy” was proved right in the end.
The telescope tube is also adorned with the words “Galileo 400” and “International Year of Astronomy” as well as key dates in the lifetime of Galileo.

SKYLINER-350P FLEXTUBE  355MM (14") F/1600 PARABOLIC TRUSS-TUBE DOBSONIAN TELESCOPE  SKYLINER-350P FLEXTUBE 355MM (14") F/1600 PARABOLIC TRUSS-TUBE DOBSONIAN TELESCOPE
Dobsonian telescopes offer an incredible aperture-to-price ratio. The Dobsonian mount, popularized by John Dobson in the 1970.s, is a simple and efficient method of mounting a Newtonian reflector, based on the Alt-Azimuth principal. 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 use frictional materials which allow it to be moved 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 provide excellent all round performance for the observation the Moon and Planets and Deep Sky Objects such as Galaxies and Nebulae.
