Skyliner 250p Dobsonian

The Skywatcher Skyliner 250p Dobsonian 254mm/1200mm (10") is the largest in the series and 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.

Pyrex Glass On The 10"

The Skywatcher 10” Dobsonian features a primary mirror made of Pyrex glass. Because of its very low coefficient of thermal expansion, Pyrex glass is less affected by changing temperatures.

This greatly reduces the cooling time of a telescope larger than 8” in dameter without using an extra fan. The great stability of this low expansion glass ensures high quality images.

It is also substantially more resistant to scratching then plate glass. Please note this is available on the 254mm/120mm (10") only.
