Sky-Watcher GOTO 12-inch Dobsonianadd this item to shopping cartThis product is highly recommended
Code: SWDOB300CGT
305mm Black Diamond GOTO dob mounted Newtonian telescope for seriously convenient observing


Never before has large-aperture motorised observing been so affordable and convenient. We tested this telescope and it is simploy excellent all-round with renowned supurb optics and a great GOTO system that'll keep you observing all night from a simple 2 star alignment.

Skywatcher's excellent collapsible scope is now combined with powerful dual-axis encoder servo motors in the base for automatic slewing and convenient tracking of celestial objects with an easy-to-use SynScan controller with 42,900+ objects.

Tracking is good enough for planetary and lunar imaging plus short exposure deepsky imaging with cameras like the GSTAR-EX.
