StarHopper 10 Dobsonian Reflector Telescope w/Manual Altazimuth Mount
Up for auction is a gently used Celestron
StarHopper 10 10.0"/254mm Dobsonian reflector telescope (1270mm f/5.0)
with manual Altazimuth mount. The Dobsonian design is just another name for a
Newtonian reflector telescope mounted into a ground-based device which usually
moves upon ball bearings. They'll
generally handle a lifetime of use. Dobsonians don't give you an enormous
viewing angle or the razor-clean view of an apochromatic refractor. They do one thing well, and they do it better
than nearly all designs practical for an amateur to buy; they hunt down the dim
and the small, allowing you to see them gloriously.
The StarHopper 10 has a 10" primary
mirror, with BK7 optical-quality glass and an efficient roller track bearing
providing dozens of support points for the smoothest swivel motions. You'll be observing full throttle in no time
at all! Comes with instruction manual.
2.00" Focuser allows use of broad
Included fan decreases scope's cooling
time (requires 8 "AA" batteries)
Roller track & nylong bearing
Limiting stellar magnitude of 14.5
