Which is the better 10 inch reflector

Postby mckinnell » Wed Jul 04, 2018 11:23 pm

Greeting to all,

After some many years out of Astronomy i have decided to come back to the fold as it were, with this in mined i have but one question on the two 10 inch Dobsonian reflectors i have to choose from and they are the Bresser, or, the SkyWatcher Skyline 250 PX.

Excepting the mounting of the tube to the main mount stand as it were, i see no great difference in either of them, so, if any kind persons out their have these two types and could/would enlighten me as the over all advantages of one over the other, it will help me to ascertain which i finally get.

Many grateful thanks to all and regards,

Tom................ :) ;) 8-) age 64

I don't know but have two other Skywatcher telescopes and think they're great!
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

I have a 10" Skywatcher retractable dob. It's a nice instrument optically. The movement of the tube on the mount could be smoother but the more you use it the easier it gets!

Apology not required! Have you decided which telescope to have?

I am going to get the SkyWatcher 250 Dobsonian, in about two weeks time... :D unless a better model or make is found wondering if a collapsable of the 250 might be better than the solid tube type :?: any feelings on this point chaps :!: :?:

Regards.............Mckinnell

I've just sold one of those on Ebay! The collapsible is better for moving about and putting it away.

Regards

Graeme

Graeme, What are you going for now then???, i must admit to looking at getting a 10 inch tube and an EQ3-2 and getting dual motors at a later date, but, as usual, it's the overall price, must do some thinking, really want to do some photo taking of object, well, would like to as i say!!!!!!!!!!

Best regards..............Mckinnell......

I'm getting a 9.25" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. I've had a dobsonium for a few years so now I'm changing to an EQ mount and planning on having a dabble at astrophotography. It's being delivered today!
