About this product

Model:  hubble

An excellent choice for the ambitious astronomer. 

Manufactured in 1990, this 2.4m Cassegrain Reflector telescope features Ritchey-Chrétien optics with two hyperbolic mirrors and a number of built-in imaging devices including a wide-field camera for near-ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared photography and a sophisticated spectrograph for determining a target's temperature, chemical composition, density and motion. Perfect for the study of dark energy, dark matter and the formation of individual stars. 

For best results use at high altitude. 

Buyer collects (we can provide bubble-wrap and polystyrene packing chips, if that helps).

This sale is not covered by our 30-day returns policy.

Power Hungry Hubble
Wednesday, 29 September 2021  | 

Had my eye on this for a while now and I finally took the plunge. Great optics but I just can’t keep up with the batteries any longer. Had to remortgage my house and have decided to put it up for sale on Shpock

Would have ordered but can't locate a version of ASCOM that will run on windows 3.0

Dissapointing
Wednesday, 15 September 2021  | 

I'm new to astrophotography.
"Invest your money in a good beginner mount" they say. So I bought a HEQ5 and was looking for a cheap telescope to start with.
There was no shipping, it just said "pick it from the orbit". I've done just that and finally in my backyard, I found out that there is no Vixen style adapter for this scope. Also FLO wasn't supportive. They told me lies like "too heavy for your mount" or "only works well in zero gravity".
I should have spent more money in a telescope from a major brand.
Don't trust this tinkerer company called "NASA" (never heard of them before).

New model needed!
Saturday, 14 August 2021  | 

Purchased this a while ago now...had trouble at first with the focuser but got used to it after a bit of practice
I've had a lot of problems recently (computer wise) so thinking about getting a newer model...Is FLO getting the James Webb in soon?

Upgrade on its way...

From what I have read, this model is pretty good. Alas, no returns policy.
Might wait for the new version before I commit

Should mention the broken computer
Tuesday, 29 June 2021  | 

No idea how the broken onboard PC can be replaced. USB tethering to my laptop probably impractical. These RC designs are not easy to collimate either. I'd still give it 5 stars if it was working and came with a maintenance contract. Nebulas often seem to come out in funny colours that bear no relation to reality though. I'd need to sort that out. There is no green in space.

Miserly manufacturer.

Does not even come with a cheap eyepiece. Very disappointing when considering the asking price.

Excellent views of the moon, planets and distant galaxies
Thursday, 6 May 2021  | 

This telescope is an excellent bit of engineering. It is a little old, but it does the job. The setup of this scope is far from easy, as is the initial assembly (had to order a new mirror as the first one supplied was blurry). Other than that excellent scope! Expect YEARS of localised torrential rain and thick cloud once you buy this though...

Q1. How much for the "Hubble"?

The price for the Hubble will be decided by auction at a later date. You should consider additional expenses before making a bid though, as there will be other expenditure required should you win the bid. One of the most expensive additions will be the custom made Pyrex gloves needed, as the Hubble will be collection only from somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, and it will likely be a little hot!!! :-)
