Celestron introduces StarHopper series of Dobsonian Telescopes available in 6", 8", 10" and 12" apertures. Dobsonian Telescopes are recognized within the astronomy hobby as an excellent value for the aperture size, and Star Hopper line is as rich in features as it is in value.

All StarHoppers use optical quality BK-7 glass, this is the same high-quality glass used in most binocular prisms and refractor telescope lenses. All StarHoppers Celestron Telescopes use a roller track bearing on the azimuth surface providing dozens of support points for smooth swivel motion. They also use a variable tension clutch system for proper balance and control in both altitude and azimuth. The 10" & 12" StarHoppers have cooling fans built-in to the rear cell to decrease cooling times. The 8", 10" & 12" models come standard with 2" focuser and 1.25" adapter.

The 10" & 12" telescopes come standard with a 32mm 2" eyepiece and use a 9-point flotation mirror cell for equal support of the primary mirror.
