  • Saxon DeepSky 6" Dobsonian Telescope
Summary
The Saxon Dobsonian 6 Reflector Telescope is a powerful telescope which allows you to see further into the nightsky without bursting your budget. They are one of the Best First Time User's Telescope as they give the most value. This is due to its unique design, whereby the majority of the product cost goes into its high-quality lens.

The Saxon Dobsonian range of telescopes come in 6", 8", 10", and 12".

It also comes with Plossl lens which are one of the more expensive to manufacture because of the quality of glass, and the need for well matched convex and concave lenses to prevent internal reflections. Set up is a lot easier compared to tripod-based models. Simply mount the main unit on the base and you're good to go.

*Please note, the image through all finder scopes will be upside down.

Great First Telescope - Review by
Overall Score
100
I purchased this second hand from a man who got it from ozhut and it was still in new condition. First night out and easily set up, playing around with lens and finally got a great pic of moon. Even took photos with the iPhone thru the eye piece. Next onto Mars. It's very fiddley and close up a slight nudge of the stand puts you off. Not sure if it's touchy do simian stand of beginners error. All up I am very happy with picture quality and how easy it is. Point and shoot. Definitely recommended. It's a little big and heavy but I roll it around on a skateboard to get around. (Posted on )

Amazing telescope, good for the money - Review by
Overall Score
100
Having previously owned a 60 mm refractor, this was my first 'serious' telescope. So far, the views of the moon and planets are awesome, with lots of detail. Have barely scratched the surface in terms of deep sky objects.

It strikes the perfect balance between aperture and portability, as well as price an quality, and is probably the all round best beginner telescope. Additionally, it is big enough to keep you satisfied for many years.

Unless you happen to have a good local dealer (rare, Australian Geographic doesn't count), I thoroughly recommend buying from ozscopes. To upgrade, colour filters as well as more and better eyepieces will fully unlock the potential of this magnificent scope.

Disclaimer: I'm a amateur so what would I know.

Fast shipping. Easy setup. I have managed to align the finder scope with by pointing at a mountain. Also managed to look at some distant high rise buildings on the gold coast and a small boat far out to sea. Looking forward to a clear night for star gazing.

Awesome telescope! - Review by

Telescope arrived 2 days after I purchased it. All items were packaged appropriately and flawless. Telescope was properly collimated and instructions of assembly were sufficiently easy to follow.
First night out revealed great detail on jupiter and some clusters and M42 nebula that I had time to investigate.
So far I have been thoroughly impressed with the telescope and great service from ozscopes!

Great first telescope - Review by
Overall Score

It is quick and easy to assemble.
I've seen the moon and its craters in crisp detail.
The belts of jupiter are clearly visible along with its large moons.
The finder scope is very good for quickly locating objects.
It's relatively easy to carry given its size.

Great telescope overall and definitely recommended.

Amazing first telescope - Review by

I finally got a few good viewing nights in a row, and what an amazing telescope this has turned out to be.

I've been able to see the moon in crisp detail, along with a small yet clear mars. But to my delight i've been able to see a very clear Saturn along with it's rings. This is really a great first telescope and it has fueled my passion for more star gazing

I got my scope just two days after order was placed. The staff support is fantastic and they really know what they're talking about. What this scope sees blows my mind away; nebulas (I even found the dark nebula in Carina!), distant comets, distant star clusters etc. You can see the red belts on Jupiter and the sharpness of Saturn's rings (even the black Cassini division), and you can see some of their moons. All this from my yard in a light polluted suburb! Though heavy to carry (ended up putting wheels on it). Unlike a tripod setup, this scope takes up very little room and looks good ornamentally so there is no need set up every time. If it had the wheels and the red dot finder i would have given it the 5th star.

Great scope overall and would recommended it without hesitation.
