        Excellent Scope and Reflex finder, other accessories aren't worth much.

        The scope was excellent. Bright and clear images. Excellent collimation right out of the box. For the price, it seems this can't be beat. But if this package is not on sale to be comparable with the standalone scope, it's probably worth getting the scope and the reflex sight separately. The included planisphere, moon map, and red flashlight, are not worth paying extra for. The Reflex Sight, though, is excellent and highly recommended.

        First Light 10 inch Dobsonian

        I set up the telescope, collimated it, and took it out in my very light polluted back yard for some views. I couldn't get the lenses to focus, unless I pulled the eyepiece almost all the way out! I reached out to a very experienced astronomer, and he asked if the scope came with a black spacer tube. It did! I installed it on the focuser, and everything works fine! It is my first real telescope, and so far it has been great!

        5 Stars all the way

        Was looking for a recommended Dobsonian. I read good things about this 10 inch Dob over on the Cloudy Nights blog. I can personally recommend now. 5 Stars all the way. Ask for the offered 5 off discount.

        Love this Telescope

        This telescope was on display at our Astronomy Meetup night late last year. My wife and I were able to become somewhat familiar with it then. We used the 5% off coupon code offered by this website and then upgraded to the bundle packaged items, 2nd eyepiece and moon filter are recommended. Love this Telescope.

        Wonderful Dobsonian

        Most other 10” Dobs of similar quality won’t beat this price, not to mention - this Scope comes with an eyepiece, barlow lens, red dot finder, AND a smartphone adapter for some quick and easy imaging. Everything came packaged nicely and securely, easy assembly, easy maintenance, and most importantly - great Optics! Get this Scope while you can.
