Somehow the location seems very unsafe for the open optics...how do u keep the loose sand from getting on the mirror? Even a little breeze or someone walking around might cause some damage..

Yes, we can ship worldwide, including to the USA. We recently sent a 22" scope to Chile.

We can built the mount including the optics made by a hight quality French optician, or make only the mount, and you put your own mirror inside.


Here is a 12" travel dob in front of VLT (Very large Telescope), in Chile:

Beautiful photos of beautiful telescopes! My main worry would be Sand People or Jawas, however.

Pierre:

Lovely, minimalist scope in an incredible, austere setting. I can't decide if I want one of your telescopes or rather to go to Tunisia more.

Great work.

I think it would look just as nice in the Negev desert of Israel. I. WANT. ONE!
