Hubble 14" Foldable Ultra Light (UL14F) Truss Dobsonian Structure

The total price for the base structure only (no optics) is $1095 + Shipping & Handling.

50% deposit of the base price, $547.50, at the order time; rest 50% + shipping & handling will be invoiced to you via Paypal and should be paid before shipping in about 30 days.

A Premium, Ultra Light, and Ultra Portable Design: About half the weight of the traditional Dobsonian telescopes with a rigid 8-truss and foldable ALT bearings structure. It can be taken apart and assembled in just a few minutes, so you can easily move it around, take it to your favorite dark place, actually anywhere in the world.

Ultra Light and Ultra Strong: The Hubble UL14F features an ultra light all metal structure. All parts are fabricated from steel and aluminum. The UL14F has been designed with 3D CAD and optimized with FEA software to provide the optimal performance and stability.

Modular Design: The Hubble UL14F is delivered in several pre-assembled modules. The entire systems can be assembled easily and quickly, as little as a few minutes.

It is not only ideal for customers who already have 14 inch Hubble sandwich mirrors, but also a great way to upgrade your existing heavy weight traditional Dobsonians, such as Orion XT14, Celetron 14" StarHopper, and etc.

UL14F Structure Specification:

The structure includes 6-point mirror cell, 3-Vane Spider.

Standard truss length: F/4.6. Custom focal length adds $75.
Total structure weight: 13 kg (28.6 lbs)
It does not include the focuser, the finder scope or the optics.


Options:
8 x 50 Straight Through Finder Scope with Brackets and Dovetail: $65.
A top quality 50mm achromatic finder offering an inverted and reversed image, perfect for Newtonian Telescope. A deluxe quick release double-ring Finder Bracket including a dovetail base is included. There will be $15 additional charge for the surface delivery, or $25 additional charge the air delivery.

10:1 Dual Speed Linear Bearing 2" Crayford Focuser is a top quality focuser: $159. It is completely CNC machined, and has 3 super smooth stainless steel linear bearing tracks for an extremely smooth and precise motion of 45mm of focus travel, with zero backlash and zero image shift. There will be $15 additional charge for the surface delivery, or $25 additional charge the air delivery.

Eight (8) Black Color Stainless Steel M6 Knob Screws Pack: $20; Free shipping if ordered with system

1m (39.5") long, Deep Blue Color Slid-On Round Cushioned Grips. Made of vinyl foam, they insulate, cushion vibration and protect the truss tubes. $6 each. Free shipping when ordered with system.

Please understand that the surface delivery is a great value, but it does take LONG time, as long as 10 weeks (or even longer). You agree not to make the delivery time an issue with Paypal when using the surface delivery.

The main structure will be shipped in a very nice and very strong box, while the truss tubes will be shipped in a tube box.
