The Sky-Watcher 12″ DOB is a big gun. If you are shooting for well resolved, elusive 12th-magnitude fuzzies, you now have the power. In fact, a very significant wow-factor extends down to viewing the stuff people usually concentrate on with 8″ and 10″ telescopes. Except they say, “WOW!”, when they view through this super aperture amateur 12″ SW telescope. You can not only be a hero to yourself, but a mystical guru to other backyard astronomers, scout groups, friends, and neighbors. Astronomy is a great hobby to share, and a SW 12″ DOB makes you potentially the hit of any star party. Well, so much for ego satisfaction – the point is – the SW 12″ DOB is a serious telescope that will be purchased by a serious amateur who wants serious deep-sky penetrating resolution. Be advised this Light Chariot is one sweet astronomical ride!
