  • More Info
    • Our 16" truss-tube GoTo Dob presents a perfect combination of big-aperture optics and sophisticated, fully motorized object location technology for the ultimate in Dobsonian telescope performance and observing convenience
    • A big, 16" aperture telescope designed for maximum portability - both the optical tube and Dobsonian base can be broken down quickly without tools into easily manageable components for convenient transport in any standard size car
    • Features accurate, motorized GoTo pointing and tracking of over 42,000 celestial objects within its GoTo system database, and enough aperture for great views of each one
    • Closed-loop electronics forgive accidental bumps and allow the telescope to be moved manually without losing alignment of the GoTo system. Heavy-duty clutches on both axes allow independent adjustment of motion to desired level of resistance
    • The XX16g now comes Wi-Fi enabled, which means it can be controlled wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet instead of with the SynScan hand controller. Just download the FREE SynScan Pro app to your iOS or Android device to enjoy wireless GoTo control.
