REFLECTING TELESCOPES THAT GIVE MORE SKY FOR LESS
8-Inch f/6 Ultimate Reflector Kit
by Stargazer Steve
The Eight-Inch f/6 Ultimate Reflector Kit combines the advantages of
both Solid-Tube and Truss Tube Telescopes.
It provides a unique way to experiment with Telescope Optics and find out how to make them work together to make a powerful astronomical instrument. This makes an ideal project for families , groups of students, and stargazers. As a solid-tube
telescope it protects the optics from dew and dust, as well as stray light. As an open tube telescope it cools down quickly and
is free of the effects of tube currents. It changes from one mode to the other in a flash. For storage and transport the tube “shrinks” to less than half its full length (24").
The introductory Price is $529.00 + $45.00 S&H = $574.00
Do not send payment now. If you are interested email Stargazer
Steve at <stargazer @isys.ca> and your name will be added to the waiting list. Stargazer Steve will contact you when an Ultimate Reflector kit is nearing readiness and available for you. (Canadians please contact Stargazer Steve for a quote including
