Style:8" Collapsible Dobsonian Corresponding to the escalating "aperture
fever" that has gripped amateur astronomy for several decades, an 8" diameter
is now generally regarded as the minimum entry-level aperture for serious
observing. The low cost, large diameter, and fast focal ratio of the 8" Sky-
Watcher Dobsonian make it an ideal dedicated telescope for wide-field, deep-
space observation of faint galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. The low-power
dramatically captures wide swaths of sky in a single view. Galaxies and nebula
appear to pop out of the heavens as bright, expansive masses of stars, gas,
and dust.
