An 8" Dobsonian can be a lifetime workhorse of a telescope. It's a great size to start out with. Even when people get bitten by the aperture bug, they will commonly keep a trusty 8" Dobsonian around as their scope to pull outside for a quick look or take on a trip.

  • 1200 mm focal length (f/5.9)
  • 2” single-speed Crayford-style focuser with 1.25” adaptor
  • Super 25 & 10mm 1.25” eyepieces

The Sky-Watcher Traditional Dobsonian Telescope 203mm/1200mm (8″) has a “paraboloidal” primary mirror to eliminate spherical aberration and a four-arm, secondary- mirror bracket with fine supports (0.5mm thick), to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss. In addition, this model include a 2″ focuser with a 1.25″ adapter, allowing the use of either eyepiece size. This model also include the new feature-tension control handle.
