UL18 Hubble Optics ultra-light Dobsonian telescope: 18” f/4.5
This telescope offers a large (457.2mm diameter) primary mirror in a light frame assembly. Hubble uses ‘sandwich’ technology to lighten the weight of the mirror and help it reach thermal equilibrium faster than traditional designs. This telescope is not ready to go straight out of the box and is more a DIY instrument: it has been too challenging for me to set up and balance, given my limited skills!

Hubble sells the scope, including postage from Hong Kong, for a total of about $7500 (Australian); see https://hubble-optics.com/UL18.html. I did get a Bintel technician to check that it was properly tracking (it was) but it still does need some adaptations before it can be put into service. Note: the mirror has a small dark imperfection (see photograph) but was delivered that way by Hubble. In my limited observation through the telescope this did in no way impair its visual performance.

The telescope comes with SiTech GoTO Drive and shroud. Happy to sell for $4,200 (negotiable). I live near Dorrigo, Northern Rivers region of NSW, and am happy for the scope to be collected; alternatively, I don’t mind to deliver for the cost of fuel if between Brisbane and Sydney, or I can post it (at the buyer’s expense).
Price: $4,200
