ORION 200mm F6 Dobsonian Reflector Telescope

ORION 200mm F6 Dobsonian Reflector Telescope

Product code: TO430
Manufacturer: Orion Optics
£562.43

Best 200mm for General Viewing!

Orion Optics 200mm F6 Dobsonian is one of their most popular Dobsonian models. Being F6 the tube easily fits across the back seat of a family car with room to spare. Weighing less than 20 Kg, it is an ideal quick set up medium sized instrument with minimum weight. The mounting is made from aluminium plate, similar to that used in aircraft production and is incredibly strong and coated with hard polymer for scratch resistance.

One of the special features of Orion Optics 200mm F6 Dobsonian is the ability for existing owners of their OTAs or even competitor's OTAs to be able to just drop their tube straight into one of their mounts. A further tremendous advantage is the ability to exactly balance the tube to avoid it moving with the weight of added equipment, large eyepieces, cameras, large finders etc. This is a feature only current, or past owners of Dobsonians are all to familiar with. Typical Dobsonian designs are renowned for the tube swinging down when equipment, even of the slightest weight, is added. To avoid this, elaborate devices are often used which seldom work properly. More common is to increase the drag on the declination axis thus increasing the drag on those bearings and, as a consequence, creating a severe problem in not allowing smooth adjustment of the telescope's position. With the use of Orion Optics fully adjustable tube cradles and PTFE bearing surfaces you have the capability of adjusting the balance point exactly to accompany the additional equipment you may have added. If you feel the focus mount is not exactly in the most comfortable position for viewing, just rotate the tube for a better, more friendly position. For users who wish to have total control, we offer an optional variable friction brake.
