      5.0 Skywatcher has a great telescope


      Solid build, excellent light gathering power. Especially recommended for deep sky objects. Retains collimation .


      Not recommended for viewing planets, rather heavy and bulky.


      I have had this telescope for about four months and am completely delighted with its performance. Though most Dobsonians need to be constantly collimated. I have often times used this scope for five consecutive nights without needing to collimate it. The views I have had of deep sky objects are nothing short of spectacular! This scope is made for 2" eyepieces. I recommend eyepieces with at least a 70% apparent field of view. Though it will accept "1 and 1/4" eyepieces you will be disappointed in the tight field of view of any eyepiece of this size. Even a wide angle 70% apparent view does nothing to correct this problem with the "1 and1/4" eyepiece. Also the right angle spotter scope takes a while to get use to. Due to the 50 lbs. weight of this scope do not expect to be carrying it up and down stairs too easily. [..]
