Discovery 15" f/5 Premium DHQ Split-Tube Dobsonian Telescope

Discovery Telescopes 15" f/5 Premium DHQ (PDHQ) Split-Tube Dobsonian Telescope

When you talk about a Discovery Dobsonian Telescope, you aren't just talking about any run-of-the-mill, mass-produced dob... You're talking hand-figured quality and all American pride in workmanship. When you lay your hands on a Discovery, you'll discover what you've been missing.

All Discovery Split Tube Dobs include the finest hand-figured optics available today and are custom made-to-order. Discovery optics are manufactured in their own state-of-the-art facility, not sold out of the country to the lowest bidder. Every set of optics is painstakingly tested until it passes Discovery's strict standards for "diffraction limited". They incorporate the use of Fizuea, Equal-plate and Scatter-path interferometers and documentation can be provided for your telescope for an extra fee.

You won't find any shortcuts or substandard parts in a Discovery Telescope. There are no design flaws. Every Discovery Split Tube Dobsonian Telescope is fully assembled and checked for fit and finish before it ever leaves for shipment. All of their telescopes are handcrafted and masterfully built. You will never find a Discovery Telescope sold in a discount department store... Ever!

Will you pay a little more for a Discovery Dob? Yes. But you won't have to pay for extras that should be part of a standard package. All Discovery Split Tube Dobsonian Telescopes come with a 2" Crayford focuser with 1.25" adapter, dust cover and Telrad viewfinder.

Excellent scope

I bought this a year and half ago and have not regretted it for a second. The optics in this scope are exceptionally good. Motions of the scope are o.k.-functional, but the scope just kills it on every type object you point it at if seeing permits.Fantastic scope for the money and the optics are either premium or are so close to premium that it does not really matter.The views have been incredible at any magnification if conditions are right. It is a big scope, but it can fit into a sedan if you are creative.Can be managed by one person and as six footer I don't have any issues with it.If you are a small person, it could be a struggle.
