Explore Scientific 12" Ultralight Dobsonian Telescope. Condition is Used. Local pickup only
Putting this up for sale again. I love it, i just don't use it enough. Pictures are not the best sorry. Please message me if you have questions. It aint perfect, but its an awesome instrument! Helps to be handy to make some DIY improvements, I have already done a few.
There is currently no finder bracket or finder included. I had intended to mount a telrad.
I keep the primary mirror box wrapped in a trash bag to keep dust out. I will give you a box of trash bags with it if you want to do the same. This has just been the easiest way for me. I always keep the altitude bearings on.
Comes with 32mm 62deg FOV ES waterproof eyepiece. Awesome eyepiece and a great combination with this scope. I dont need a coma corrector with this combo, but this is personal preference. If you are experienced, you may want one.
Comes with shroud. I cut elastic at one end for it to work. Still doesnt work honestly. I think it hangs into the optical path. I'm sure it can work with a little DIY project.
I put a secondary fan on the upper cage. This keeps dew off the scope for me. Right now the wires are cut to power all three fans. You will need to connect the wires to a 8xAA battery case that is included. I might do this before sale or I can do it dor you. Just caught me in the middle of a DIY improvement!
You should know about these scopes before you buy this one. This is a gen II even though I found a mix of gen 2 and gen 1 attributes. A little annoying at first, but its in a good spot now. I think the counterweight kit is necessary, but I currently survive with diy small weights. It works good.
I am not in a huge rush to sell, but if youre very interested and kind, I will be to let it go for the listed price.
