8-Inch f/6 Ultimate Reflector Kit by Stargazer Steve
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
