Obsession Telescopes continue to be at the leading edge of design, quality and engineering. And with a full line of telescopes they have the products to match every astronomers personal mission for large aperture.
It was back in 1989 when Obession introduced their first Dobsonian, with large diameter side bearings and anti-friction surfaces, that resulted in finger-tip guiding and incredibly easy motion in every direction.
Always looking to be innovative they also developed the first open steel frame, self-cooling mirror cell.
Having now sold in excess of 1,500 large scopes, Obsession is currently one of the most imitated Dobsonians on the market today. Obsession scopes are employed by a number of users, such as amateur astronomers, academic institutions, and several observatories.
Many other manufacturers use counterweights and bulky bottom boxes with several inches of slop between the primary and mirror box, whereas Obsessions are ultra-low profile and well balanced for optimal use and enjoyment.
It has been noted that all these scopes provide astounding views and can be set up in just a few minutes.
Scopes range from the 12.5" f5 Classic upto the 22" f5 and f4 Classic. Without doubt one of the biggest assets of these scopes is their portabilty.
