Designed with you in mind
Zhumell's latest Dobsonian telescope is the result of a new approach to design. Customers like you told us how to improve our Dobsonian, and we listened. Never before has a telescope been so designed with you in mind.
The Zhumell Z8 Deluxe Dobsonian Reflector Telescope features an 8-inch aperture to capture significant light for clear, long-range viewing. Used in conjunction with the two included eyepieces (30mm and 9mm) and Dobsonian stand, this telescope will make your night-sky observations and star parties more enjoyable than ever.
A primary mirror cooling fan brings the telescope into thermal equilibrium quickly so you can enjoy long viewing sessions without delay. You'll also enjoy the new adjustable azimuth bearing system, which facilitates smooth, even motion when tracking celestial objects. When you arrive at your subject, the dual-speed Crayford focuser allows for quick, easy adjustments, while the laser collimator ensures rapid, accurate optical alignment.

Q1: Can you define focal ratio? Why is this important?
A: A focal ratio is the ‘speed’ of a telescope’s optics, found by dividing the focal length by the aperture. The smaller the f/number, the lower the magnification, the wider the field, and the brighter the image with any given eyepiece or camera.
Fast f/4 to f/5 focal ratios are generally best for lower power wide field observing and deep space photography. Slow f/11 to f/15 focal ratios are usually better suited to higher power lunar, planetary, and binary star observing and high power photography. Medium f/6 to f/10 focal ratios work well with either.
Q2: Does the Z8 Deluxe come with a laser collimator?
A: Yes, the Zhumell Z8 Deluxe Dobsonian Reflector Telescope comes with a laser collimator. This is standard with this telescope.
Q3: Does the Zhumell Z8 have a parabolic primary mirror?
A: Yes it uses a parabolic mirror.
Q4: Is a tracking drive available for the Z8 dobsonian telescope?
A: Unfortunately there is no tracking unit available for dobsonians at this time.
Q5: What carrying case would be appropriate for this telescope. I couldn't find the dimensions listed.
A: Unfortunately we do not carry a case large enough for this dobsonian telescope. The focal length of the tube is just under 4 feet.
Q6: Why is a RA finder showed, a straight on finder on the main image and no finder mentioned in offer? Do you get a finder with this scope?
A: The Zhumell Z8 Deluxe Dobsonian Reflector Telescope comes with a right angle finder scope.
