25" Obsession Dobsonian

Position: S 23° 27' 38,6 " / E 18° 01' 01,7"

Forget averted vision. Globulars, nebulae, and galaxies will come screaming out of the eyepiece. Join the realm of Herschel whose famous NGC catalog of deep sky object descriptions are exactly what you will experience. This is the telescope that Dave Kriege, founder of Obsession, uses for his personal observing. The Obsession 25" is considered to be the ultimate telescope for the serious deep sky astronomer. One person set up, one handed guiding, one incredible observing machine. Try direct vision - you'll get used to it.

Probably the largest instrument for visual observing under southern skies!

Standard 25" f/4 Obsession Dobsonian telescope with:

Equipped with Argo Navis Digital setting circles, using 10.000-step optical encoders, for quick, easy access to all objects in the NGC, IC, and Messier catalogs. Maximize your Southern Hemisphere viewing experience.
