Dobsinian mount tutorial

Hello everyone! I wan't to share with you something usefull, that I made. When I was buying my first telescope I've been searching on youtube how it really looks like, what size is it or how to use it. I haven't found anything that I was looking for. So when I've bought it, I thought, that I should make a simple review/tutorial of dobsonian mount guide to beginers. So far it helped some people, so I've thought, maybe, someone will find it usefull here :)



Sorry for my bad language, English isn't my first language, as you can tell from video :D

I hope it helps someone :)

Hi  Deividas, welcome to EMS.


I am glad you like the Dob, they are great scopes for the money they cost. 

There are a good few guy's round your way and they would make you very welcome if you wanted to join them. 




Enjoy the forum, and if you want to modify your scope to make it easier to use, have a look round the DIY section for ideas. :)

It's been on the back burner for several years but I've got plans to write a beginner book that contains instructions on how to use commonly used mounts. I've seen some good beginner books around but never one that really hits the nail straight on the head.
