Skyliner 400p Collapsible Dobsonian

The Skywatcher Skyliner 400p Collapsible Dobsonian reflector telescope has recently undergone some exciting and important design changes, upgrades and improvements. It comes complete with a Crayford focuser, and offers the ultimate in large aperture portability and performance.

This stylish truss tube design was meticulously engineered to combine convenience, extreme portability and dependable efficiency in an cost-effective package.

In contrast to various other truss tube designs, the SkyWatcher Collapsible Dobsonian does not have to be taken apart in between uses. It transports as 2 compact items that can be put together and ready to use within just mere seconds. It is an easy task to collimate once set up, and retains its collimation throughout the entire evening.

The bearing system has been redesigned too. The brand new SkyWatcher 400p Collapsible Dobsonian features buttery smooth azimuth bearings. Even the twelve-inch model can be rotated with just the push of a finger.

Just like Skywatchers traditional Dobsonians, the latest Collapsible Dobsonians include SkyWatcher’s patented tension adjustment control on the altitude bearings. This does away with the necessity and extra expense of awkward counterweight systems to balance the telescope.
