Explore FirstLight 10-inch Dobsonian - Ultimate Bundle Package - w/ Bonus Accessories

No telescope type has changed the hobby quite as much as the Dobsonian. Before the introduction of the Dobsonian by John Dobson, the vast majority of amateur telescopes consisted of small telescopes with primitive mechanics - barely enough to see the polar caps of Mars or the rings of Saturn. Larger telescopes, such as the Schmidt-Cassegrain were reserved for the wealthy. The ingenious combination of simple yet effective mechanisms with the greatest possible opening gives the Dobsonian telescope a unique triumphant march around the world. Nowhere do you get as much light for your money like a good Dobson.

Now, Explore Scientific has come up with the ultimate universal design. This Dobsonian can be converted into a Newtonian telescope. If you ever wanted to take pictures, simply unscrew the bearings from the tube and place the scope on an EQ mount with the included Vixen style dovetail plate.

The unrivaled stiffness of the included 2.5" HEX focuser with helical gearing makes focusing easy and allows the use of both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces. Including the 2.5" Hex focuser is a quantum leap for this price class of telescope.

A Red Dot viewfinder as well as a 25mm SPL eyepiece are included with the device. If you want to transport the telescope as compactly as possible, the new 10" FirstLight Dobsonian / Newtonian is easy.

The Rockerbox can be dismantled with a few tools, because the parts are assembled with metal quick connectors. Thus, a bulky rocker box quickly becomes a handy flat package of boards. The ideal workhorse for the deep sky observers. Details on planets and deep sky objects will be visible even for inexperienced observers. Bright star clusters are resolved to the core, and the sight of the terminator on the moon is an unforgettable experience.

The scope is ready for use with our optional coma corrector.


  • 10" aperture provides impressive light-gathering power making this an ideal instrument for deep sky observations.
  • Scope and mount can be transported in pieces and reassembled within minutes.
  • Rockerbox is easy to assemble with few tools and includes accessory tray for eyepieces.
  • 2.5" HEX focuser has helical gearing.
  • Universal design makes it easy for imagers to use the telescope as a traditional Newtonian by removing the bearings from the OTA and attaching the tube to an equatorial mount using the included Vixen-style dovetail plate.
  • Model comes with a 25mm SuperPlössl eyepiece and a red dot viewfinder for locating observing targets.
  • Included smartphone adapter helps observers use their smart device to capture and share images.

    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.
