Explore Scientific Dobsonian Telescopes at the AAS

Welcome to the 236th Meeting of the American Astronomical Society.

 

Dobsonian telescope pairs a large-aperture Newtonian reflector with a smooth, low-center-of-gravity alt-azimuth mount that is easy to assemble, is very stable, and this combination gives you the largest aperture for the least expense in a complete ready-to-use telescope. Our Dobsonian line is available in 8-inch, 10-inch, 12, inch, 16-inch and 20i-inch models. These telescopes are a great choice for deep-sky enthusiasts who love the live visual view through the eyepiece.
