10" Z-Scope Newtonian Reflector Telescope on Dobsonian (Alt-Az) Mount (No Tracking)

Newtonian Reflector telescopes are commonly referred to as "Light Buckets" because of their incredible light-gathering ability. Dobsonian mounted Newtonian scopes are easy to set up and use, just point and enjoy. Makes a great beginner telescope.

Donated to Fort Bend Astronomy Club in 2012. Built by telescope builder Dennis Zwicky in about 1995.
