12" travel dobsonian
This ultralight 12", fd4 dobsonian telescope is particularly dedicated for travelling and easy transportation. Usually accepted as a hand luggage in aircrafts, it is the ideal instrument for mobile astronomers, flying to the very dark skies, in Chile, Maroco, Namibia or Australia. It can be carried in its bag on shoulders or even on the back, when hiking in the mountains.
This is a REAL telescope, without compromise in terms of stability, stiffness and robustness.
This is also the ideal instrument for easy and sudden observations. You can keep it fully assembled and carry the hole to your garden for plug and play observing cessions.
When disassembled, everything including optics, will find its place in the transportation box. The dimensions of the box are 45 x 45 x 25cm
