The "Canopus" has a stronger focus on stability, strength and easy use. It's the perfect telescope for every individual who wants to have the most stable telescope Sumerian Optics offers.
The "Canopus" has a rockerbox which also serves as a rotating platform in the form of a large ring. This makes the "Canopus" a very stable and rigid Dobson with an amazing design. Despite the larger size, the weight remains low. If you compare the size of the "Canopus" with most other Dobsonian telecopes then you will see a difference.
Prices include GSO 16" F-4.5 primary and 75 mm secondary, MoonLite CR2 dual speed focuser, metal Red Dot Finder and cooling fans for the primary mirror. Batteries are only included for the anti-dew heater secondary mirror.
