Hello everybody,
Mike from StarStructure Telescopes.

 

Just a quick announcement:

 

I have a few remaining spots for 2024. Sizes up to 30" available. I'm still entertaining structures up to 40".

 

Also, during 2023, I started building extra parts for a few select sizes. At the moment I have two 24" structures being completed.

 

One of them is fixed at F3.3 and will include brand new Terry Ostahowski optics.

 

The other can be finished with optics of your choice.

 

Focal length restrictions from F3 to F3.6. Note that all my structures are optimized for F3.3.

 

Call or email for details.

 

A safe and healthy New Year to all!

 

Michael

Great the 'see' you, Mike, and glad to hear that you still have StarStructure on the move. 

 

I've been down a lot of roads by way of my amateur astronomy journey, and I don't think I've ever been more satisfied with a piece of equipment along the way that I have with your StarStructure telescope. 

 

Wishing you Happy Holidays and a bountiful New Year!

 

Steve

Hey Steve, great to hear from you! If life allows, hoping to get a few road trips in this year and take SST on the road. Maybe we could hook up at a starparty or something.

Hi All,

Following up...I have 2-24" structures now fully fabricated and ready for finishing. The one with trusses is configured to a focal length of F3.7 (88.8") as we are offering it with our 24" F3.7 Steve Kennedy testing mirror. Call or email for details.

 

Both scopes can be configured to any focal length from F3.7 to F3.0. Both have been built considering all available options. Call or email for details.

 

We also have a brand new 24" F3.3 Terry Ostahowski optical set in house intended to be used on the one without trusses.

 

Both of these scopes are ready to view!

 

Mike

A 20: F/6 would be fun for my planet viewing.
