About this product

Model:  ae_magnetic_handle

Astro Essentials Magnetic Handle for Dobsonian telescopes. 

This simple handle attaches magnetically to the side of your Dobsonian telescope and provides a convenient means of pointing the OTA.

The super strong neodymium magnet has a diameter of 43mm and weighs only 32g but has a pulling force of up to 8kg! 

The magnet is covered in rubber to protect the surface of your telescope tube.

The price is for one handle. 

NOTE: This magnetic handle is designed for use with Dobsonian telescopes with ferrous metal tubes (StellaLyra, Sky-Watcher, Celestron and most others). 

IMPORTANT: This handle is not designed for lifting the telescope.

Decent price and strong magnets, but I think the base should be shaped to grip the Telescope tube more firmly.


Thank you for the suggestion :-)
Such a design feature would not be possible at this price, but we will look into custom-made alternatives for specific tube diameters.
Until then, we offer this simple, affordable, one-size-fits-all solution.

Basic and cheap cheap but works great. It makes it much easier to maneuver your dobsonian around the sky. It also keeps all my grubby fingerprints off the tube. Next day delivery by FLO.
