|This Classic 6-inch Dobsonian from Guan Sheng Optics offers high optical performance at a low price. The optical and mechanical quality are without any compromises. This dobsonian is a wonderful beginner telescope. |
This telescope is easy operable wth its alt-azimuthal Dobsonian mount. The crisp and contrasty image definition on the other hand will also convince experienced astronomers. Sharpness and image definition are on par with a 120 mm apochromatic refractor costing 6x more. The steel secondary spider vanes are very thin for nearly no diffraction effects.
The telescope is also good for deep-sky. With 6" aperture, you have 78% more light gathering power compared with a standard 4.5" Newtonian. Objects are shown therefore brighter.
