A well-made Dobsonian telescope is an excellent observing machine. It features unmatched stability and smoothness of motion. Plus, it is eminently compact and transportable. However, the Dobsonian has one major drawback - no motor drive. You have to push it around to follow what you're viewing. This can get to be a hassle.
Set a Dobsonian on an Equatorial Platform and experience instant motorized tracking! Wherever you point, you're tracking - smoothly, precisely - without losing stability, ease of operation or portability.
A Dobsonian mounted
on an EQUATORIAL PLATFORM becomes the ultimate user-friendly telescope.
Perfect for High-Power Drawing, Classes, Star-Parties, Group Viewing,
