Description

Zhumell Z8 Dobsonian Telescope Bundle

 

We could not have dreamed up a better bundle at such an amazing price.  The Zhumell Z8 is already become a classic for excellent dobsonian telescopes.  This bundle comes with all the standard accessories as the Z8 includes everyday, such as the Primary Mirror Cooling Fan, Laser Collimator, 2-Inch 30mm Eyepiece, 1.25 inch 9mm Eyepiece, 8x50 RA Finderscope, Dual-Speed Focuser and more.  But we have taken it a step further.  We took it a step further... drum roll please....

 

First we insisted on including our new Z100 16mm eyepiece.  Now you can experience 100 Degree Apparent Field of View for that "space-walk" feeling.  Its 2-Inch format is perfect for use with the Z8 telescope.

 

Next we added some highly useful filters.  Sticking with 2-Inch format, we included the High Performance Moon and Sky-Glow Filter for space exploration in urban settings.  This filter makes viewing objects in light polluted areas much better.  We also included a Variable Polarizing Telescope Filter, excellent for lunar observations with such a large aperture telescope like the Z8. 

 

Finally, we just had to include a TELRAD finderscope.  Even though your Z8 includes an 8x50 RA Finderscope, so many customers tell us the TELRAD Finder is a fantastic compliment and is listed on their "must-have" accessory list.  So we included it. 

 

And finally, just cause we can, we included a great book called Exploring the Night Sky.  This book is great for young and old alike, and is great for any beginning or advanced telescope enthusiast. 

 

Well there it is, for a limited time only we will be offering this tremendous bundle.

 

 

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 (32mm 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.

 

Zhumell Z8 Dobsonian Telescope Features:

  • 8 Inch Aperture
  • 2 Inch Dual Speed Crayford Focuser
  • Clutch mount with tension knob
  • Primary Mirror Cooling Fan
  • Includes Laser Collimator
  • 2-Inch Format 30mm Eyepiece
  • 1.25 Inch Format 9mm Eyepiece

    Comments about Zhumell Z8 Deluxe Dobsonian Ultimate Telescope Bundle:

    Have had this 8in dob under stars several times now. Impressions... The Az motion is VERY good. Smooth with no start lurch.The Al motion not so much, but I am gaining on it with practice. The 30mm eyepiece supplied is a good finder eyepiece. the 16mm ultra wide (delux kit) has edge issues that are bad enough to be distracting, can you say COMA. when barlowed 2x the 16mm is somewhat better, but still not a view to stand in line for. This eyepiece belongs is a slower scope..say f9 and up. the two speed focaser is a nice up grade from rack &pin. pretty smooth for the money. Over all, I will give this rig 4 stars and am more than satisfied with it. With a good 6mm planetary eyepiece, she will give you a view of Jupitor that is excellent. Plenty of light for dso. I see many happy nights ahead.. A- for the dob

      Comments about Zhumell Z8 Deluxe Dobsonian Ultimate Telescope Bundle:

      Bought as a Christmas gift to myself with my wife's blessing. I couldn't decide between this or a smaller goto SCT, but my first view of the Orion Nebula through the Z100 16mm eyepiece showed me I made the right decision. No regrets on the added expense of the bundle. As expected from other reviews, everything seems to be high quality and the service was superb. Two boxes were shipped out the day I ordered it and I received it the next day. And that was with standard free Fedex shipping. Yea I'm happy.

      Comments about Zhumell Z8 Deluxe Dobsonian Ultimate Telescope Bundle:

      Bought this based on online comments. Not having a local retailer where I could see it, I opted to take a chance. Really happy I did. Construction is solid. Included lens set is great for starter. Got the deluxe package for the Telrad and Z100 (16 mm eyepiece). The Z100 is impressive. Telescope was very easy to collimate (YouTube). Included laser collimator works great. Only complaint would be there was no manual in package (print from internet instead) and laser collimator could benefit from a smaller beam spot to help get the adjustment even more accurate. The finder scope is also great and it can be focused (it may appear that it's not, but it is). Overall, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

        The Z8 is a quality built precision tool. From opening the box to the first look skyward I knew this scope would deliver the stars. Like a good sports car, solid handling, great appearance, proper accessories. It has opened the world of astronomy to my grandchildren with a high fun index and no frustration. I added the ED 2X Barlow lens to expand viewing options. The Z8 exceeds expectations, an excellent product and value.

          Received as a gift,couldn't wait so i got it early. I went together easily. I was impressed by care of packaging and ease of assembly. Have owned several other scopes this is awesome. Nice and sturdy, rotates like on air. The extras for the deluxe package were worth it. The Zhumell z100 30mm eyepiece is a beast. Just the size of it.I was excited just to open the accessories before even seeing the scope. This is my largest scope yet, was collimated right out of box, just had to do a little tweak ,prob due to shipping. Now all i need is a clear night . Have had it two days and has been rainy ,cloudy and windy. Definitely would recommend to purchase!

          This package was my Christmas present. I've always wanted to get out under the stars and explore a bit. I had no clue what I was missing.I've had the Z8 out 4 nights so far and spend most of my time around Orion and Auriga. My first view of the Pleiades will be a memory that last forever. Jupiter was a beautiful sight.The package adds a Z100 16 mm eyepiece that makes the sky come alive. The Telrad is an excellent touch. The laser collimator suffers from the same problem most inexpensive laser collimators suffer from - motion in the focuser so it is unreliable.As for the lack of manual, the online manual is a little out of date but there's enough to put it together and get started. Really, there is nothing to it.I'm glad I got the Zhumell [...]

          Comments about Zhumell Z8 Deluxe Dobsonian Ultimate Telescope Bundle:

          The best deal out there for an 8" dob with the right mix of accessories. You can stop reading here knowing that I already did extensive shopping around and owned several scopes to learn what works, or go on for some specifics. The 2" optical tube with 1.25" adaptor allows for either format of EP, while the larger bore/lens format does help the eye see more/better. Two of these larger lenses are part of the kit (an OK 30mm wide angle and a great 16mm 100 degree superwide), as are 2 great filters, one adjustable and a two-piece adjustable polarized, along with an OK 9mm plossl in the 1.25" format with a moon filter. A good telrad site is also included, along with great 1.25" laser collimator and a basic book to guide you. Apperture and size is a good compromize that won't break your back, or require a van to move around. It's still a handful broken down into base and tube, but manageable if you are careful, and can fit in most small cars, either on the back seat or luggage space. Unless you live on a mountain top or in the middle of nowhere, at some point you will transport to one (the tube is 46"l x 15"w with mounting knobs in place) and the base is 19" wide by 26" high). If you want to save money, the basic Z8 will suffice, although once you shop around for a superwide 2" lens, a telrad and filters, you will realize that those items alone will set you back $0.4K if you find deals, or twice that if you go premium. My favorite item in the kit is the 16mm Z100 EP, also marketed by TMB optics as the TMB 100, which is impressive to look at and hold (the size of a can of condensed soup and heavier), and delivers the advertised view. Everything for under $600, delivered to your door, is a great deal for the kit, period.

              For the money, It's the deal. I have been researching for over three months, then decided to purchase the zhummel 8 after they offered the package deal. This package includes everything you need to check out the heavens. After using a coupon I found on the net, my cost was under 550.00. The 16mm lens they throw in was the deal maker. I love the new clutch design over the spring design, its so simple. I did a fews mods on the unit, (added wheels, and some protective padding here and there). The quality of the scope is right on, you won't go wrong purchasing this beast. Assembly instructions are a bit lacking, but, the unit was easy to figure out. I have had the unit a couple of weeks and have only been able to view the Moon and Jupiter because of bad weather, but was well pleased with the results.
