Description

With its Z8 Dobsonian telescope, Zhumell took a completely new approach to the telescope design process, starting with you! Its no wonder this telescope has been a smash success among amateur astronomers; the Z Series is based on customer feedback to be the best telescope value on the market. From suggestions about materials and construction to your wish list of must-have accessories, its all been included in this family of high-quality and affordable Dobsonian telescopes. The Zhumell Z8 Dobsonian telescope features an 8 parabolic primary mirror that captures a substantial amount of light and produces crisp, bright images free of visual defects like spherical aberration. Youll also get two fully multi-coated eyepieces: a 2 30mm eyepiece for wide field views and a 1.25 9mm eyepiece for higher magnification. With the Z Series, Zhumell has put your money where it belongs: into Beyond the optics, the rest of the Z8s design is simple and streamlined. A durable, sturdy construction means your Zhumell will stand up to years of use at public star parties, camping trips, and more. Using this Dobsonian couldnt be easier. A primary mirror cooling fan brings the telescope into thermal equilibrium quickly so you can enjoy long viewing sessions without delay. Once youre set up, push the scope on its ball bearings toward your desired object. When youve centered your target in the 8 x 50 finderscope and your eyepiece of choice, bring it into razor-sharp focus with the dual-speed Crayford focuser. Then, lock your view in place with improved manual clutches. As your object begins to drift across the sky, the new adjustable azimuth bearing system facilitates smooth, even motion for tracking objects. The Z Series is affordable, but that doesnt mean its stripped-down. This telescope includes well over 100 in bonus accessories! Its everything you need to have a great first night out and enjoy stargazing for years to come.

Okay, so, yeah, I was a bit frustrated after ordering too. I initially received just the base (""box 2 of 2"") but after chatting online with amazon, a second order was placed and 1 weeks later I received both boxes: one containing the optical tube and the 2nd with (another) base. I returned the unopened box via UPS (no cost to me). A bit of a hassle, but it worked out in the end. Shipped quickly each time. (Not sure what happened to Sarah (see her review), I guess I got lucky.Anyway, this is a fantastic scope. I have an Orion XT8 dob, which I love, but decided to jump into a larger aperture, and WOW what a difference. With the Z12, you can see bright deep sky objects (Messiers, etc.) without averted vision. You can see a bit of color on the ring nebula. I even captured images of the ring nebula and several globulars with my cell phone through the eyepiece! (Not fabulous astrophotography, but ""mine"" anyway.). There is a noticeable improvement in light capture and detail in the deep sky objects, planets, and the moon. Dim galaxies are still dim, but much better detail of spiral arms, etc.It is heavy, admittedly, but fairly easy to carry the tube and base separately. I like the tube design over the truss tube design because despite its weight, it can still be a ""grab and go scope"" with short den-to-deck set-up time. Also, it maintains it's collimation fairly well, and easy to collimate with a laser collimator.It is the same scope, apparently, as available on Orion (and others), but Orion's price jumped to $999 in the past month (I assume due to the tariffs) and the shipping was very delayed. Orion's customer service is stellar (excuse the pun), but in this case I got it faster and cheaper.. and Amazon did provide immediate help and solved the shipment errors quickly.for me, anyway..Sooooooo�..not sure what to say about the shipping issues, but once I got it, I LOVE IT!
