Hi All:

 

I'm considering a Hubble 14" CDK or Hubble 14" Newtonian Astrograph. I have been looking at Planewave 12.5" CDK or another F4 Newtonian from TS Optics in Germany. Until today, I had never heard of Hubble for other than their dobsonians so I'd really appreciate some insights regarding the above two instruments. Informed opinions from non-users are welcome as well. Here's a link the Hubble:

Much appreciate it !

Gary

 

PS : Although I'm asking about the above products in a general way regarding quality and performance, the applications I have in mind center mainly around: 1) EAA observing and 2) Exoplanet and Variable Star science.

Chris Westland has reviewed his 14 inch Hubble under the article section - user reviews of cloudy nights. It's a different model, but you can get a good idea about the pros and cons of the brand.

That's a Dob review, or am I missing something?

 I mentioned that it was a different model, but it's a good indicator of the build quality and functionality of the brand. The odds of finding a review of a specialized, limited production scope are low.

Thank you both for responding. It seems that no one with either of the scopes is passing by this topic. The review article was interesting - thanks Trucker for that.
