Comments about Sky Watcher Sky-Watcher 8 Inch Dobsonian Telescope:

The main reasons for choosing this over other Dobsonians were the collapsible tube, and included large 50mm finder. I live in a metropolitan area. Though looked small, I was pleasently surprised how SHARP the Saturn looked with the included 10mm eyepiece. The base is solid and will handle the wind just fine. There is no doubt you will be satisfied with the performance. Great bang for buck. Be prepared to handle the 54 lb weight and the size though. I don't think the handle near the base plate is meant to carry the whole thing assembled, because it is just too heavy. Use a hand truck, or separate the tube from the base and carry separately.

    Comments about Sky Watcher Sky-Watcher 8 Inch Dobsonian Telescope:

    for the price a great telescope. Jupiter, its red spot and the gallilean moons are clear. i do recomend a polarizing filter because the moon is painfully bright.
