Dobson 406/1800 Flex tube Go-To Wif


Explore the Cosmos with the Sky-Watcher Dobson SynScan GOTO 16″ WIFI Telescope

The Sky-Watcher Dobson SynScan GOTO 16″ WIFI Telescope offers an extraordinary viewing experience with its 406mm diameter and 1800mm focal length. Featuring a Pyrex parabolic primary mirror and a four-arm support system for the secondary mirror, this telescope ensures outstanding optical performance, making it perfect for deep-sky observation.


Unlocking the Secrets of Dobsonian Telescopes:

The Dobsonian telescope, pioneered by John Dobson in the late 1970s, is renowned for its simple yet effective altazimuth mount design. This design features a box-mounted optical tube assembly that pivots in altitude and rotates on an azimuth base. However, achieving stability while observing celestial objects can be challenging due to the need to balance friction and stability.

Enhanced Stability and Control:

The Sky-Watcher Dobson SynScan GOTO 16″ WIFI Telescope introduces innovative features to address stability and control issues commonly associated with Dobsonian telescopes. The inclusion of a Tension Control Handle allows users to adjust friction effortlessly, ensuring smooth movement and stable positioning of the optical tube assembly. This eliminates the need for perfect balance, providing a hassle-free observing experience.

Next-Generation Precision and Performance:

Experience the next generation of precision engineering with the Sky-Watcher Dobson SynScan GOTO series. These telescopes offer unparalleled portability, performance, and value, thanks to their patented folding tube design and advanced SynScan AZ computerized mount. With a comprehensive database of over 42,900 celestial objects, including planets, nebulae, star clusters, and galaxies, the SynScan AZ mount allows for precise object targeting and automatic tracking.

Seamless Connectivity and Convenience:

Equipped with an integrated Wi-Fi module, the Dobson SynScan GOTO 16″ WIFI Telescope enables wireless control via your smartphone or tablet. Simply download the SynScan app from Google Play or the Apple App Store to access a wealth of features, including object identification, automatic slewing, and point-and-go functionality. Enjoy effortless navigation through the night sky and discover celestial treasures with ease.
