Anyone know about truss dobs from Hubble Optics?

Postby rene-gedaly » Sun Jun 19, 2016 3:48 pm

Just wondering if anyone is familiar with scopes from Hubble Optics: http://hubbleoptics.com/UL18.html. They use "sandwich" mirrors.

I'm in the market for my next scope and looking at all my options. Obsession is in the mix; PlaneWave is not. Looking for a sturdy, lightweight, truss tube, light bucket, between 12" and 18".

Whoa! Thanks, Chris. I think I'll keep looking for more consistent optics at my price point. I'm in a bit of analysis paralysis though,
