About this product
Part Number: 10231
406mm (16") f/4.4 Parabolic GOTO Dobsonian
Combining the power of a large optical tube, the portability of the patented collapsible FlexTube design and SynScan computerised Go-To technology. The new Skyliner FlexTube Synscan Dobsonians finds over 42,900 celestial objects and automatically tracks them as they move across the sky - its as easy as a walk in the park!
The patented dual-encoder design allows you to manually move the telescope anytime and to anywhere you wish - with no need for realignment. Slewing to an object on the opposite side of the night sky no longer feels like watching a kettle boil. Simply push the tube close to the object and let the computer do the rest of the work.
Please note - due to the size of this scope it is delivered on a pallet so deliveries can take slightly longer than the 1-2 working days advertised.
