Hi,

Can anyone share collapsed height, width and weight of the Sky-Watcher 10-inch and 12-inch collapsible (non goto) dob?

Also is coma a distinct issue with the 12-inch?

Thanks!

Agena has this info.  See under "Specs"

 

10"

 

12"

 

Both have a Focal Ratio of F4.9 so Coma is evident however also acceptable provided you don't insert a Coma Corrector to see the difference.

I find for magnification of 200X + I don't require the Coma Corrector.
