Combining the power of a large optical tube, the portability of the patented collapsible FlexTube design and SynScan computerized Go-To technology, the Sky-Watcher 200mm (8") Flexible Dobsonian brings over 42,900 celestial objects right in front of your eyes, and automatically track them as they move across the night sky.

The patented dual-encoder design allows you to manually move the telescope anytime and to anywhere you wish - with no need for realignment. Slewing to an object on the opposite side of the night sky no longer feels like watching a kettle boil. Simply push the tube close to the object and let the computer do the rest of the work.

The telescope body is extremly compact due to its retractable design and easy dismantling into 2 major parts. It will not find itself out of place be it in a compact car, a small balcony or a tiny backyard! It has a long focal length of 1200mm, which means with the 10mm eyepiece supplied, you are able to obtain 120x magnification when viewing dim objects in the night sky! In other words, this is an extremely capable telescope which will offer you many wonderful moments in the night sky, allowing you to see dim objects that most other telescopes will not be able to capture in Singapore! 

In short, this is a fully-computerized telescope that packs a punch without burning a big hole in your pocket! 

Easy to use with minimal fuss. Please read the supplied manual for smooth setup. Comes with 1-Year Warranty.
