Will a laser collimator like the Gosky 1.25 Metal Laser Collimator, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M4IVUYG/ref=crt_ewc_title_dp_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AHQ6VCR020F8X, work for a dobsonian even though it says it's for a newtonian?


A Dob is a Newtonian, so yes it will work. Strictly speaking the Dob bit is the mount, but it's nearly always a newtonian that's mounted.
