Interested in tracking, but Got a somewhat BIGGER than average Dobsonian ?
We are currently producing small batches to order of our bigger platform, The Watch House XL, which suits Dobsonians of 16”– 20" and ultralights up to 24” aperture, which weigh less than 120lbs all up.
These platforms have bigger footprints to suit bigger rocker boxes, upgraded bearings and drive systems, and they are currently being built to order only as they involve non-standard machining , etc.
The cost of these larger platforms is £530.00 + £25 shipping, and delivery will be normally be 15 - 20 working days from receipt of your paid order.
Below is a shot of a large Dob and it's transport system, + clever ramps used to get it on and off our platform without dissassembly.
The platform is a custom built 450 XL-platform built for a customer in Europe.
So.........if you have a fairly BIG Dob, and you want to track your targets, without spending Mega $$$ on a US import system, then please contact us by email, or by using the "contact us" form below, to confirm your scope is suitable, and then you can pay using the "buy it now" button below.
and remember :
" Experienced astronomers agree you increase your apparent telescope aperture by up to 40% when using tracking; you can concentrate on the object in the eyepiece, rather than moving the scope around."
