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.

Not what I was expecting!
Saturday, 9 January 2021  | 

Turns out I can't use this for visual astronomy, some gubbins about focal lengths and ratios and suchlike. Was going to use it for bird watching in daylight, but it's not exactly portable is it? Also a few bits melted on delivery, sure Bob's Knobs must do replacements.
Very disappointed anyone wants it pre pre owned it's going on Astronomy Buy and Sell and ebay tomorrow!

I'm sure it's good, but I live in Britain so I can't see the point.

Unfortunately the telescope was broken when first used but has since been fixed and got some nice pictures

Guiding Issues
Tuesday, 17 November 2020  | 

No doubt the optics in the main OTA are top quality, but these are rendered useless by the lack of suitable mounting points for my Orion SSAG. The only points on the scope with suitable screwpoints to mount the dovetail suffer from obstructed views, caused either by the solar panels or the covers at the front of the OTA. I have therefore been unable to guide with any precision. The only solution I can think of is to get the drill out and make my own mounting points. Either that or try an OAG. Disappointed. Any reasonable offers to purchase welcome, even if just to take it away for spare parts. Offer includes a free Orion SSAG - never used.

Ordered in 1985. Expected delivery still 5 - 10 working days 😏 Not a criticism of FLO who appear to be the most realistic 😀

Ordered one - but it burned up on re-entry.

Come on parcel force - up your game a little.

A tentative 4 star review
Tuesday, 18 August 2020  | 

Hopefully Covid-19 won't affect the delivery time of 2 of these bad boys. I've moved a few shrubs from the patio area so there should now be enough room. If optics remain undamaged during transit and I manage to mount them both on a SkyTee-2 I'll give a longer review of the set-up fingers crossed for a 5 star performance

Hubble bubble....
Wednesday, 3 June 2020  | 

Very interested in purchasing the hubble telescope. as soon as i can find a fork mount big enough i'm sure i will be in business. Just need to ask a few neighbours to move out so i can demolish their houses to make space, and chop down a local wooded area and i'm sure i will be ready to go.

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!!! :-)
