Hubble Ultra Light UL12 Truss Dob (Structure Only)
      #4377694 - 02/10/11 09:27 PM Attachment (187 downloads)

A Premium, Ultra Light and Ultra Portable Design: About half the weight of the traditional Dobsonian telescopes with an exceptional rigid 2-stage truss 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 UL12 features an ultra light all metal two-stage truss with exceptional rigidity. All parts are fabricated from steel and aluminum. The UL12 has been designed with 3D CAD and optimized with FEA software to provide optimal performance and stability.

Two in One Telescope: Hubble UL12 is not only a complete Dobsonian telescope, but with the optional Dovetail Mounting Adaptor, also can be used with an equatorial. The 6-point mirror cell supports both Sling and Clips/Screws lateral support system. Of course, you can also RTV the mirror to the cell.

Modular Design: The Hubble UL12 is delivered in several pre-assembled modules. The entire systems can be assembled easily and quickly, as little as a few minutes. Just tight a few screws, it is that simple!

It is not only ideal for customers who already have 12 inch Hubble sandwich mirrors, but also a great way to upgrade your existing heavy weight traditional Dobsonians, such as Orion XT12, Meade 12" Light bridge, Celetron 12" StarHopper, and etc.

The UL12 Structure is price at $995 + S&H. We will offer 30% discount for first 5 experienced customers (Feedbacks and photos of your scope in operation are required for these customers). There will be 50% deposit required at the order time. The system will be delivered in ABOUT 30 days.

UL12 Structure Specification:
The structure includes 6 point mirror cell, 3 Vine Spider. It does not include the focuser, the finder scope or the optics.
Standard truss length: F/4.9. Custom focal length adds $75.
Total structure weight: 12 kg (26.5 lbs)
Mirror cell: 6 point mirror cell

Options:
2 inch Focuser: $169
2 inch, 2.75 inch travel, precision 10:1 dual-speed super smooth top quality with stainless steel track Crayford focuser.

8 x 50 Straight Through Finder Scope with Brackets and Dovetail: $55
A top quality 50mm achromatic finder offering an inverted and reversed image, perfect for Newtonian Teleacope.


UL14/16/18/20 Structures Only will be available soon!

Thank you
Tong

Sorry, we are not going to be at NEAF. But here are some 3D CAD models.

Thanks,

Has anyone with a 12 inch Lightbridge converted to the Hubble UL12, if so is there a review of their experience in Cloudy Nights?
