Sky-Watcher is a well-known brand in the astronomy world, and several of its telescopes feature on our lists of the best telescopes and best telescopes for deep space. We ranked the Sky-Watcher Flextube 16" 400P Synscan as our top pick for serious observers.

The Flextube 8" 200P telescope which is on sale here is less powerful, but it has a collapsible design which makes it really practical to store. Despite its smaller format, it's a robust Dobsonian telescope that will best suit intermediate skywatchers.

This telescope is already an affordable option at full price, so this $110 off deal makes it a really appealing offer.

This compact telescope, ideally suited for beginner to intermediate skywatchers, is 14.5% off in this Cyber Monday deal. With a 1200mm focal length, an f/5.9 focal ratio and an 8" aperture, it will give you great views of the moon, planets, galaxies and more. 

Finding a good telescope for under $1,000 is rare, so this Sky-Watcher Flextube 200P 8" Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope is a steal at $645. As the name implies, the space-saving collapsible design means you can fold it away for easier storage. 

But its small size is not the only thing that makes this telescope a worthwhile investment; it has an impressive 1200mm focal length, a f/5.9 focal ratio and 8" aperture. Sure, it can't compete with heavyweight telescopes like the Celestron NexStar 8SE, but it's a practical option that will suit most intermediate skywatchers looking to improve their skills.
