The Dobsonian or Dob telescopes are optically similar to reflector telescopes and offer the most cost effective way to start and develop your astronomy hobby.
Where the Dobsonian is different is in the mounting system that allows you to find and track objects.
A Dob base is elegantly simple, there are no knobs, levers, switches, gears, handles, dials, or anything complicated required to operate the telescope. Everything is moved by hand and in an altitude-azimuth (up-down/left-right) configuration making it simple and intuitive to use . Pointing a Dob to any celestial object is easy and this makes Dobs ideal for beginners and there is also the opportunity to move to larger models that have the capacity to provide viewing for intermediate and expert astronomers.
