Great first scope
Thursday, 14 March 2013  | 

I bought this last week and got to use it properly for the first time on Monday and then again yesterday. It is really easy to use being on the dobsonian mount and is not to big to lug around. The tube fits perfectly across the back of my peugeot 306 with the base easily going in the boot. Assembly is very quick and takes almost no time. So far I have been able to find the Leo Triple galaxies, Andromeda galaxy, Beehive Cluster and a few other deep sky objects. The lenses that are included are ok but not brilliant. The 25mm is better than the 10mm. The service from FLO (Martin specifically) was also fantastic. I ordered the scope on Tuesday at about 2pm and it was with me the next day (just a shame the clouds seemed to come with it too! lol)

I have had the sky-watcher 250xp dobson now for about three weeks, only had chance to use it a couple of times.
first impression when I received this scope were; very well made, easy to assemble. on using the scope; collects alot of light and very clear views although the lenses that come with this scope are not that good, so I would set aside a few pounds for some decent ep's..I have looked at Jupiter and the light gathered from it is excellent!! I have ordered a decent barlow lens and a good 10" ep so the scope can show what it can really do!!
I was undicided on this scope and the sky-watcher

An amazing piece of kit

I have now owned this telescope for two years in a semi rural location. It does exactly what you would expect for a large dob scope. It collects so much light which has allowed me to see over 400 galaxies!

Its limiting magnitude in practice is around 14.2!

It is also a fantastic scope for planets, double stars, star clusters.

The low F ratio does mean that you have to choose your eyepieces carefully to avoid the seagulls effect at the edge of the field.

It is just at the limit of portability when the tube and mount are carried sepately.

Would I buy this scope again. You bet!
