Our view

A fun, simple to use table-top telescope mounted on a single arm Dobsonian mount. The tube telescopes out to twice its stored length, and can even be carried in one hand by an older child. Same primary and flat as the standard 130P f/5. Great entertainment for the family and neighbours. Observing at its absolute simplest.


Keep it covered when not in use if you don’t wish to collapse it down after each night’s use.
