The Dobson mounts are very popular, usually the larger aperture Newton telescopes are used with Dobsonian mounts. Dobsonian mounts are very robust and steady and are also affordable for larger scopes as well. The telescope can be mounted easilty and very quickly, and is ideal for children as well. The eyepiece is located at the same position on the tube making the observations more comfortable. For imaging purposes it has some limits and can be used to take photos of the Moon or planets only. The telescope used on a Dobsonian mount can be later mounted on an equatorial mount as well. Telescopes up to 50 cm are available.
