Skywatcher Skyliner 16" FlexTube GoTo Dobsonian - Aperture 406 mm / Focal Length 1800 mm
The new ultimate Dobsonian is born!
Combining the power of a large optical tube, the extreme portability of the patented collapsible Flex Tube design and SynScan computerised Go-To technology, the new Skyliner Flex Tube Synscan Dobsonians bring over 42,900 celestial objects right in front of your eyes, and automatically track them as they move across the night 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.Transportability
This is the biggest Dobsonian of Skywatcher and of course the biggest
transportable dobsonian in our opinion. It´s possible to carry and
assemble this telescope with one person only. At the nightsky 16" offers
you new dimensions. Nebulae and galaxies show uncountable details.Observing
adjustment of the SKFXD16 is very easy. The horizontal and vertical
adjustment happens through bush bearings. At every position the optics
stay at their place. You only have to move the telescope, leave it and
you are able to observe. The adjustment of the altitude friction through a
so called "Tension Control". So you are able to adjust the clearance of
the adjustment of altitude and also to lock the telescope.Delivery contents
