The Skywatcher 10" Dobsonian Telescope is an affordable large-aperture scope which is very popular with amateur astronomers of all levels. The 10" aperture gathers more light than the 8" Dobsonian, enabling you to get greater detail when viewing the moon, planets in our solar system and deep space objects such as stars, constellations, double stars, nebulae and galaxies, giving you a stellar viewing experience. The patented Tension Control Handle means the mount will properly stabilise the optical tube so the telescope can remain in its desired position to view an object and will maintain its position even when the mount is rotated.

Dobsonian telescopes - 'Dobson' refers to their style of mount - are renowned for being simple and uncomplicated to use, making the Sky Watcher 10" Dobsonian a perfect telescope for beginners.
