This is the 'big daddy' dobsonian telescope from Heebie Jeebies, allowing you to see further into Solar System. Great value and simple to use.

As the name suggests, at the right time of night Mars - about the size of a 5 cent piece - can be seen clearly. This telescope is physically larger than the Lunarscope, thus allowing more light to enter and the distance-range improved.

So easy to you use, select and insert the magnification eye piece, take the cap off the tube and point skyward for great viewing of the red planet and more.

Lightweight and compact, this scope is easy to take anywhere. There is an electronic red dot finderscope to aid in the discovery of small objects in the nigh tsky. The telescope is mounted on a base which allows movement in altitude (up and down ) and azimuth (left and right).

Galileo would be proud!

How does it work?

The optical tube assembly consists of a primary parabolic mirror and a flat secondary mirror in an open ended tube. Light enters the tube, reflects off the parabolic mirror onto the flat and then into an eyepiece. Focus simply with the eyepiece mounted on the side.

Sometimes referred to as a 'light bucket', the simple but clever design, allows a lot of light to enter making distant and faint objects visible.

The telescope is mounted onto a base that can be moved in the Altitude (up and down) and Azimuth axis (left and right).

Isaac Newton was the first person to build a practical reflector in 1668. His design was placed into an alt-azimuth mount and made popular by amateur astronomer John Dobson in the 1960s hence the term Dobsonian.
