Sky-Watcher are proud to introduce a new range of truss-tube dobsonian models. The new FlexTubeTM Dobsonians all feature retactable OTA’s, making them easy to transport and store, offering the ultimate flexibility for owning an otherwise large telescope. They all feature 2-part telescope tubes attached with 3-arm supports. When in use the tube is fully extended and each arm’s axis is clamped to ensure a rigid optical system. After use, the clamps can be loosened and the tube retracted into a convenient compact size. Owning a large telescope has never been so easy!!
SKYLINER FLEXTUBE PARABOLIC DOBSONIANS Ade Ashford Says... "Despite their great performance to cost ratio, Dobsonians can be rather bulky in larger apertures, but Sky-Watcher have addressed this with their innovative and aesthetically-pleasing Flextube range. With their collapsible tube design, these versatile instruments are easy to store and can be readied for observation at a moments notice. Ideal for deep-sky viewing, these 'scopes will also deliver stunning planetary images."
