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).

Wait for the new model

When FLO starts selling the James Webb scope, buy that one instead, the Improved optics will make it worth the wait. Galaxy season is approaching!

Old design, still very capable.
Thursday, 14 April 2022  | 

When I first received this scope, from the factory there were some aberration issues with the mirror, for a short while I was able to coupe with the blurry images by correcting them in the post, but FLO were quick to resolve the issue and sent a crack team of their finest staff out to my Hubble telescope, mend the issue regarding the mirror and now the pictures are clear as day (or night).

For a twenty plus year old design, this scope is certainly up there with the other titans such as the Celestron C11, it's also phenomenal for visual astronomy.

Bird Jones, avoid
Tuesday, 4 January 2022  | 

Received this expecting amazing views as per the (big) box picture illustrations in which it came. However when I inserted my wide view 150mm eyepiece I realised things were not as described.
Upon further inspection I found a cheap 200 million dollar corrector lens used to allegedly improve the visual results. Avoid!

Astonishing Detail

Has the power to open doorways to other dimensions, had to deduct a star as it needs a pretty robust mount.

Cheap first scope?
Monday, 15 November 2021  | 

I am seriously considering this as a first telescope so buying second hand might save me a bit of money. On the other hand, their are probably some cheapo Chinese copies to be had on eBay

Power Hungry Hubble

Had my eye on this for a while now and I finally took the plunge. Great optics but I just canít keep up with the batteries any longer. Had to remortgage my house and have decided to put it up for sale on Shpock

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).

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!!! :-)
