From now on, you can build yourself your "Dobson Factory" telescope with a kit!

 

Here is a 12 " fd 4,5 Travel scope, which you can order as a kit, and built in you living room, even if you never touched a piece of wood.

 

This telescope is similar to the many telescopes made by "The Dobson Factory" during the 10 last years,  robust, stiff, accurate, with very  smooth movements. The refined design is the result of all the experience accumulated during those years, in order to make it simple and efficient. 

 

The telescope weights 17 kg, including optics, and the transportation box is 48x45x23 cm.

The kit is complete, including not only the wood pieces, but also all the accessories required for the building, stainless screws, rods and bolts, the 8 carbon trusses already cut at the right length, teflon pads,  and a helicoidal focusser. It is possible to use a crayford focusser. 

 

The wood pieces, which are cut very accurately with cnc machines,  are assembled with dovetails and glue.

 

The complete kit, optics not included,  costs 1490 € with an helicoidal focusser . A Moonlite focusser: +320 €.

 

As for the optics, you can choose you favorite local maker, or order the optics proposed by The Dobson Factory (Mirrosphere, Astroreflect).

10" and 16" kits are also available.
