My new scope
Video Rating: 4 / 5

How to decipher all the secrets in the observatory. The anti-cube code depends on what direction you are facing. If you keep entering the code eventually you will be facing the right direction.

  2. kenskebabs says:

    Wow, how informative. Thanks so much to this contribution to knowledge.

  3. a6km says:

    how about that truss mechanism ?? it doesn’t look very stable at all

  4. iphonejunkyev says:

    its about 60-70lbs

  5. Lexonas says:

    How much does it weigh? As i understand, it should be pretty heavy, though it seems like you lifted it pretty easily

    My SkyWatcher 254mm. Diameter ,Focal Length 1,200mm. F/4.72 Synta SkyWatcher is FULLY Enamel White Aluminum Tube and Pyrex Thermal Releasing Parabolic Mirror. My Dobsonian hold the Collimation FIRM-PERFECT whereas Truss Dosbosonians might need Collimation due to their Collapsable Truss Mis-Alighnments due to shifting slightly of the Truss-Bars!!!!

  7. Jules7892 says:

    What I like about the 254mm. 10″ Aperture SkyWatcher is that it is still in the 1 Man Capable Lifting control Parabolic Mirrored Diffraction Limited Perfect-textbook image Pyrex 10″ Reflector controlibilities!!!!

    wouldld you reccommend the ‘auto track’ version of this ‘scope.?

  9. SireSquall77 says:

    Very nice video guy

  10. iphonejunkyev says:

    @jgstargazer can you email me a pic of the spool your referring too? Evsimonenko@gmail.com

  11. jgstargazer says:

    I have a 10″ Meade dob with a 9×50 RA and red dot finder. I was lucky enough to find a 12″x24″ wooden wire spool which I painted to match my scope’s colors. Really is easy on your back during those long observing nights because the focuser is now at a comfortable level.

    Best Video ever….no bullshit, no talking, ….cut and dry

  13. Dvamber says:

    I wnet back to the shop and the viewfinder was changed with the one from a 12 ich in the store. I cannot focus it well, however.

    Thanks for posting this video. Amazing a very simple demonstration can convey so much.

    I just priced the 12″ Sky watcher GOTO Dobsonian..I am so going to buy one..great design..

  16. Iphonejunkyevan2583 says:

    that sucks the 10″ dont come with a right angle finder like they do in the states.. and lifting by the adjustment handles is not recomended.. ill post another video on where i mounted the additional handles.

  17. Dvamber says:

    I bought the same scope 3 days ago. Mine has one dust over in plastic (as on the video) and one in fabric. Also the finder has no right angle but is a straght one. Only the 12 inch scopes here in Belgium have a right angle viewer. Is lifting by the handles also not allowed for the 10 inch version? The 12 inch is a lot heavier. Where dit you put the extra handles? I do not see them on the video.

  19. TheAcidHairball says:

    Are you sure? None of the other input codes mattered.

  20. Jollygoodfellowz says:

    It depends on what direction your facing. Forgot to mention that in the video. I’ll put it in the description.

  21. TheAcidHairball says:

    I think you got some of the codes wrong for the first telescope part, because when I first do the code, it doesn’t work, but then I go to start it again, and the first two or three inputs get the anti-cube to form.
