    Skywatcher Black Diamond 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope

    The Ultimate in Convenience

    SkyWatcher does it again. An old favorite gets a complete facelift with new features and upgraded components! The new Skywatcher Black Diamond 10" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope presents a collapsible truss-tube design. The best part? It requires no reassembly between uses - the ultimate in convenience!

    The venerable Dobsonian reflector design has recently undergone some important upgrades and improvements: SkyWatcher is pleased to introduce the all-new Collapsible Dobsonian complete with Crayford focuser – the ultimate in large aperture portability and performance.

    This elegant truss tube design was carefully engineered to combine ease of use, extreme portability and consistent performance in an affordable package. Unlike other truss tube designs, the SkyWatcher Collapsible Dobsonian does not need to be disassembled between uses. It transports as two compact pieces that can be assembled and ready to use in just seconds! It is easy to collimate once set up, and it holds its collimation throughout the evening!

    To top it off, all of the new Collapsible Dobsonians are shipping with ultra smooth Crayford focusers.

    Better than I expected!
    Overall Score
    At first, thanks to OzScopes for amazing service, speed of the delivery and communication as well. At second, this telescope is the best choice what you can make if you are starting with stargazing and you realy want to explore and see the beauty hidden up there. Get more eyepices after your first observing to get closer (that is what I did) and you are ready! Absolutely clean and crisp image (Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mercury, detailed observing of surface of the Moon) and as far from the lights you will be as much you will see (Nebulas, Comets, etc).
    Excellent quality of telescope, no plastic crap from China, this is something, what can stay with you for ages...You will not be disapponinted! 10/10

    Overall Score
    i had original planned on buying an 8 inch dob but ended up geting this as it was on sale for 750 at a local closing store in perth. although i didnt buy from oz scopes its a great site!

    Building the mount took about 20 mins, easy enough to do no probs. the quality of the parts was great , more than i expecting. there was 8 heavy gauge screws holding the base together!!!

    on that same night i was able to view Jupiter and its moons as well as the orion nebula all with the eye pieces supplied
    quality of the parts and viewing was A+

    only down side is how heavy the whole thing is (as a whole) if the scopes detached its probably a different story, but this just adds to the rugged build quality of the base

    A truly great first telescope
    Overall Score
    I received this telescope for my 21st birthday, and it turned out to be a lot better than I had expected it would be. After reading the manual, I was sure getting it ready to use for the first time would be a chore, trying to get the thing properly collimated etc. But the first time I set it up, pointed It at some street lights a few K's away and aligned the finderscope, I could already see the picture was crisp and just perfect.

    We then pointed it at Jupiter and what we saw was amazing: you could clearly see the clouds of Jupiter, and 4 of its moons, it was beautiful!

    I've yet to take it out for a proper nights stargazing, but I'm sure when we do, we'll be just as impressed as we were this first time.

    The only minor problem I had was that the bearings needed to be a lot tighter than I understood the instructions said they should be to stop it from dropping the front while aligning it. It would be nice if it were more balanced, I'm not sure how well this thing will cope when I try attaching my SLR to it.

    If you're looking for a first time telescope and you can afford this one, go for it, you will not regret it.
