Dear CN folks,
My name is Phuc Dang, from Vietnam. I am a CN member since 2014, and my first telescope was made in 2005, it's a homemade 60mm F1000 refractor (with spectacle objective lens). Since that very first humble telescope, the passion of telescope making just keep growing up with me over the years, and I had made dozens of telescopes, range from 76mm to 12.5", all Dobsonian designed. Last year, I and some of my fellow stargazers decided to start a business in manufacturing astronomical telescope for Vietnam's market - which is currently 99.999% flooded by cheapo refractor and Newtonian telescope from China.
In the past 1.5 years, we had worked hard to introduce to stargazing enthusiast in Vietnam our very first product, which is called SW114 telescope.
SW114 is a classical Dobsonian with 114mm spherical primary mirror and 900mm focal length, this is a familiar and popular spec for a 114mm Newtonian telescope. What set us apart from others small-scaled telescope making company is that we're capable of designing our own mechanical telescope parts like focuser, mirror cell, spider... for our Newtonian to fit the overall design of the telescope.
Here're some photos of the SW114:
Bearing materials for Dobson mount are teflon ride on PVC on both Alt and Az axis.
The SW114 comes with 1.25" crayford focuser, collimation cap, 2 Plossl eyepiece, eyepiece tray, red-dot EZ-II finder and 2 years warantty.
Retail price for the SW114 in Vietnam is 5,000,000 VNĐ (about $215 USD), and is now ready to be shipped to the customer at anytime.
Currently our website is under construction, so I will update the link later. Incase any one of you here happen to live in Vietnam and is looking for a good telescope, please call me at (+84) 374050887 to place an order.
Thank you for your interest.
