The National Geographic 114/500 telescope is a compact Newton mounted Dobson. It collects more than twice as much light than a 76-millimeter telescope, so you can observe many more weak objects, and at the same time the Moon and planets show more details. At the same time it is a very compact, easy to transport construction - ideal for summer or weekend trips.
Dobson's installation is very easy to use. It allows you to quickly search for objects, because we rotate the telescope in natural axes for us, related to the Earth system - in the azimuth axis ("left - right") and in the altitude axis ("top - bottom").
