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 several 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 studying dark energy, dark matter and the formation of individual stars. 

For best results, use at high altitudes. 

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

Great piece of kit, but.....
12 November 2023  | 

Excellent optics (now), but I had issues with it focussing straight out of the box. I would have given it five stars, but it was not available in Red (as the Red Cat telescopes are). Great service and delivery as always from FLO.

Some concern with VX mount compatibility

I ran out of space on my counterbalance arm for adding weights. is it possible to add a very long extension?

A class of its own, though not very compact.

It'll go well alongside the London Bridge in my unique items collection. Can't wait to collect it.

Poor delivery, still waiting!
18 July 2023  | 

I'm not sure what the delivery driver was up to but seen him yeet this from their van on my door bell camera. Looks like he kicked it into low earth orbit! Be amazed if this didn't need some repairs to get it working properly as that would have certainly put the mirror out of alignment. Just hoping it makes it back in one piece!

Okay scope, but not good for travelling
25 June 2023  | 

Quite an upgrade from my 6-inch to a 95-inch scope. Unfortunately, doesn't fill in my car well so I can't take it when traveling. Came with some aberration in the primary mirror, and manufacturers still haven't got back to me about a replacement.

Astonishing views. Ordered another for bino viewing.
23 June 2023  | 

I'll need to upgrade my tripod, but "double bubble Hubble" is the way to go!

Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

The bottle of lens cleaner was measured in gallons rather than fluid ounces. That gives some indication of the size of this eyepiece.

Eye relief is a few hundred miles. That's more than comfortable.

Highly recommended!

Older version

This must have been the first version that suffered from aberations. Since the shuttle program is shut down, I cant have anyone service it. Would not reccomend.

Still haven't received mine. Ordered 33 years ago.

As the title says. I hear it's a great instrument, and I understand product shortages, but 33 years is 33 years ...

Not Recommended for Garden Use
27 February 2023  | 

I bought it to watch the birds in the garden but find my binoculars easier give better results and are a lot easier to set up. However, on the plus side a woodpecker is now nesting in it.

Not bad tube rings supplied
18 February 2023  | 

Naturally it was cloudy upon arrival so couldn't use it straight away. Good job too as it didn't come with tube rings. I had to weld some up as the skywatcher ones aren't suitable. I was surprised to see it arrive via airmail, it'll need collimating as mirrors moved slightly after impact in my garden.

Was a bit big for the az-gti but seemed fine on an HEQ5 pro. This, like most Ritchey Chretien scopes, appears to be a rebranded GSO.

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!!! :-)
